ITIL Defined

According to the official ITIL site (www.itil-officialsite.com), ITIL® is the only consistent and
comprehensive documentation of best practice for IT Service Management. Used by thousands of
organizations around the world, a whole ITIL philosophy has grown up around the guidance
contained within the ITIL books and the supporting professional qualification scheme.

ITIL consists of a series of books giving guidance on the provision of quality IT services, and on the
accommodation and environmental facilities needed to support IT. ITIL has been developed in
recognition of organizations growing dependency on IT and embodies best practices for IT Service
Management.

The ethos behind the development of ITIL is the recognition that organizations are becoming
increasingly dependent on IT in order to satisfy their corporate aims and meet their business needs.
This leads to an increased requirement for high quality IT services.

ITIL is supported by a comprehensive qualification scheme along with a network of accredited
training, consulting and technology providers operating across the globe.

The primary benefit coming out of most ITIL projects is a significant reduction in IT's Total Cost of
Ownership (i.e., operations cost) along with the ability to deliver reliable, high value services to their
client base. Today, ITIL best practices have been adopted by organizations of all sizes including
Disney, IBM, Caterpillar, Shell Oil, Boeing and governments across the globe.

.The five Books of ITIL are:

Service Operation (SO)
Service Operation introduces, explains and details delivery and control activities to achieve
operational excellence on a day-to-day basis. Readers will find many of the familiar processes from
the former service support and service delivery books, which have been updated where necessary.
Service Transition (ST)
Service Transition provides guidance and process activities for the transition of services in the
operational business environment. It covers the broader, long-term change management role,
release and deployment practices, so that risks, benefits, delivery mechanisms and the support of
ongoing operational services are considered.

Service Design (SD)
In order to meet the current and future business requirements, Service Design provides guidance on
the production and maintenance of IT policies, architectures, and documents for the design of
appropriate and innovative IT infrastructure service solutions and processes.

Service Strategy (SS)
A view of ITIL that aligns business and IT so that each brings out the best in the other. It ensures
that every element of the Service Lifecycle is focused on customer outcomes and relates to all the
companion process elements that follow. Subsequent titles in the core set will link deliverables to
meeting the business goals, requirements and service management principles described in this
publication.

Continual Service Improvement (CSI)
Alongside the delivery of consistent, repeatable process activities as part of service quality, ITIL has
always emphasized the importance of continual improvements. Focusing on the process elements
involved in identifying and introducing service management improvements, this publication also
deals with issues surrounding service retirement.


ITIL 2011

The most current release of the library is titled ITIL 2011. It was released to the market on July 29th,
2011. The 2011 edition provides the following updates to ITIL 2007

ITIL 2011 - Service Strategy

The concepts within the publication have been clarified, without changing the overall message. The
updated publication includes more practical guidance and more examples where relevant. The newly
defined process of strategy management for IT services is responsible for developing and
maintaining business and IT strategies, and there are now separate descriptions of business
strategy and IT strategy. Financial management has been expanded, and business relationship
management and demand management are now covered as processes.

ITIL 2011 - Service Design

Throughout the updated ITIL Service Design publication, there has been particular focus on
alignment with ITIL Service Strategy. A number of concepts and principles have been clarified, most
significantly the flow and management of activity throughout the overall service design stage with the
addition of the ‘design coordination’ process. Other significant clarifications include the five aspects
of service design, the design of the service portfolio and the terminology related to views of the
service catalogue.

ITIL 2011 - Service Transition

The structure, content and relationships of the configuration management system (CMS) and service
knowledge management system (SKMS) have been clarified to help the reader to understand these
key concepts. There is new content explaining how a change proposal should be used. The
evaluation process has been renamed ‘change evaluation’ and the purpose and scope have been
modified to help clarify when and how this process should be used. The service asset and
configuration management process has additional content relating to asset management, and there
are improvements in the flow and integration of a number of processes, including change
management, release and deployment management, and change evaluation.

ITIL 2011 - Service Operation

Process flows have been updated or added for all processes including request fulfillment, access
management and event management. Key principles – including guidance around service requests
and request models, and proactive problem management – have been clarified. The publication has
been updated to explain how basic events flow into filters and rule engines to produce meaningful
event information. The relationship between application management activities versus application
development activities is also clarified. Other clarifications include an expanded section on problem
analysis techniques, procedure flow for incident matching and further guidance for escalating
incidents to problem management. In addition, the guidance for managing physical facilities has
been expanded.

ITIL 2011 - Continual Service Improvement

The seven-step improvement process – and its relationship with the Deming ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’
cycle and knowledge management – has been clarified. The CSI model has been renamed the CSI
approach and the concept of a CSI register has been introduced as a place to record details of all
improvement

Initiative’s within an organization. Minor changes have been made throughout the book to clarify the
meaning and to improve readability. Particular emphasis has been made on documenting the
interfaces from CSI to other lifecycle stages.

More details on the 2011 changes can be found on the official ITIL site at http://www.itil-
officialsite.com/


ITIL Certifications

Today, ITIL offers a total of 11 certifications to the IT community. ITIL has accommodations in its
syllabi to support delivery in a classroom or virtual classroom using an accredited instructor or in
self-study or blended learning environment using a combination of online self-paced training
programs combined with accredited instructor or mentoring resources. Listed below is a brief
description of the training programs currently being offered to the market place.

ITIL Foundation Certification

The foundation-level certification program targets IT professionals looking to become a general
practitioner in the practice of IT Service Management. While these practitioners have a general
understanding of ITSM, they have a limited knowledge of any specific process, function or service
lifecycle area. This is the first stop for those looking to become ITSM Specialists, Practice Managers
or Experts. Although not required, candidates are highly encouraged to complete a classroom or
online program prior to sitting for the exam. The exam is a forty question multiple choice exam and
can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in an examination institute testing
center. Candidates will be awarded two ITIL credits and in most cases 18 PDU’s upon successful
completion of the Foundation exam.

ITIL Intermediate - Lifecycle Specialist

The lifecycle certification series targets individuals looking to specialize in one or more of the five
ITIL Lifecycle practice areas. Historically, these roles involve individuals from the Planning, Design
and Improvement areas within the IT Engineering, Application and Project/Program Management
organizations. Candidates must hold a ITIL V3 Foundation certificate plus successfully complete a
classroom or online training program to sit for the Lifecycle exams. The exams are eight question
complex multiple choice exams and can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in
an examination institute testing center. Candidates will be awarded four ITIL credits and in most
cases 22 PDU’s every time they successfully complete a Lifecycle exam.

Lifecycle certification classes include: Service Operation (SO), Service Transition (ST), Service
Design (SD), Service Strategy (SS) and Continual Service Improvement (CSI).

ITIL Intermediate - Capability Specialist

The capability certification series targets individuals looking to specialize in one or more of the four
ITIL Capability practice areas. Historically, these roles involve individuals from the service
implementation, maintenance and support areas within the IT Implementation and Operations
organizations. Candidates must hold a ITIL V3 Foundation certificate plus successfully complete a
classroom or online training program to sit for the Capability exams. The exams are eight question
complex multiple choice exams and can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in
an examination institute testing center. Candidates will be awarded four ITIL credits and in most
cases 38 PDU’s every time the successfully complete a Capability exam.

Capability certification classes include: Operational Support & Analysis (OSA), Release, Control
& Validation (RCV), Planning, Protection & Optimization (PPO), Service Offerings & Agreements
(SOA).
ITIL Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC)

The Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC) program leads to the ITIL V3 Service Manager Expert
certificate. This capstone certification completes the Lifecycle and Capability streams by focusing on
the ancillary knowledge required to implement and manage the necessary skills associated with the
use of the Lifecycle practices.

Candidates must have accumulated 17 ITIL credits by completing a series of Lifecycle or Capability
certification programs to qualify to sit for the exam. The exam is an eight question complex multiple
choice exam and can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in an examination
institute testing center Candidates will be awarded five ITIL credits and in most cases 38 PDU’s
upon successful completion of the MALC exam.

ITIL Training Delivery Methods
There has been lots of discussion lately about what ITIL training method is best to learn from. There
are those who say classroom is best because it's where you have direct access to an experienced
instructor as well as other IT professionals willing to share their thoughts and experiences. There are
others who say e-learning is the way to go as it provides the student with scheduling and learning
flexibility plus online mentoring services at a low price. There are others who say blended learning is
best as it provides the best of both instructor led classroom and e-learning. The bottom line is they're
all good as each delivery method is a nail to someone's training hammer. Listed below is a detail
description of each delivery method along with a summary of how each method impacts training,
travel and time out of the office budgets along with the student's ability to pass the exam on the first
try (i.e., return on investment).

The Three T's and one R of ITIL Training

There are four basic things training coordinators need to think about when connecting a student with
an ITIL training delivery method.

The first is Training budget. It makes no sense to go shopping at Tiffany's if you only have a dollar in
your pocket.

The second is Travel. Most companies have put a hold on travel until the economy gets better. My
gut tells me that even when it gets better there will still be a hold on it especially when management
discovers that things still get done without people jumping on airplanes.

The third is Time out of the office. The downturn in the economy has forced companies into a
position of doing more with less. With that being the case it's almost impossible for anyone to leave
for a couple of days let alone a week.

The fourth is Return on Investment (ROI). That is, if employers (or wives) are paying for the training
they want some assurance that the student will pass the exam on the first try and that he or she will
return with knowledge they can be used on the job.

Listed below is a summary of the ITIL training methods available, their impact on a student’s training,
travel and time out of the office budgets and their value in helping a student retain the content and
pass the exam on the first try.
ITIL Classroom or Virtual Classroom Training
ITIL classroom certification programs are delivered by an accredited instructor to groups of students
assembled in a physical or virtual (webinar) classroom with the exam being administered on the last
day of the program however students willing to use a new web cam proctoring method now
have the option to set them up on their own. Training options include:

      Public, open enrollment classes delivered in a training center to a group of students

      Public, open enrollment virtual (webinar) classes delivered online to a group of students

      Corporate classes delivered onsite to a group of six or more students

      Corporate virtual classes delivered online to a group of six or more students

      Courseware licensing programs for IT organizations looking to deliver their own program

Budget & Productivity Impact

      Training Budget - This is the most expensive solution in the market today due to its
       significant expense structure (venue, instructor, operational overhead etc.)

      Travel Budget - Unless you can find a virtual or locally hosted class some travel dollars will
       be required.

      Time out of the Office - Plan three days for Foundation and the Service Lifecycle classes and
       five days for Capability and Managing Across the Lifecycle.

      Content Retention / Exam Pass - This is one of those depend situations. That is, if the
       instructor is good and the student follows all the rules (i.e., reads the corresponding ITIL
       books, studies in the evening etc.) the likelihood of passing the exam is in alignment with the
       average international pass rates of 77.5%

ITIL Blended Learning Training Programs
ITIL blended learning training programs use a combination of online self-paced training programs
combined with accredited instructor or mentoring resources plus student management services.
Exams are typically delivered on the last day of the program however students willing to use a new
web cam proctoring method now have the option to set them up on their own. Training options
include:

      Public, open enrollment classes delivered in a training center to a group of students

      Public, open enrollment virtual (webinar) classes delivered online to a group of students

      Corporate classes delivered onsite to a group of six or more students

      Corporate virtual classes delivered online to a group of six or more students

      Courseware licensing programs for IT organizations looking to deliver their own programs

Budget & Productivity Impact

      Training Budget - With minimal instructor and venue expense, this delivery method tends to
       price out somewhere between classroom and online self-paced training.
   Travel Budget - If the instructor led review session is delivered online the impact to the
       budget is zero. If delivered in a classroom, the impact will be minimal based on the reduced
       number of days required for the instructor to be onsite.

      Time out of the Office - Plan one day for Foundation and two days for all other programs.

      Content Retention / Exam Pass - This program provides a lot of one-on-one support to help
       students retain the content and pass the exam on the first try. In a pilot program with a
       Fortune 100 company this approach is producing pass rates at the 95% level with average
       student scores coming in at 85+%

ITIL Online Self-Paced Certification Programs
ITIL self-paced certification programs are delivered online using a self-paced, streaming video or
traditional e-learning format with support from ITIL Experts and other students operating within a
social network or proprietary support group. With this approach students are in charge of setting up
their exam schedule. Training options include:

      Online self-study training videos or e-learning programs delivered direct to a student's PC,
       smartphone or tablet

      Corporate self-study e-learning training programs delivered over the corporate intranet

Budget & Productivity Impact

      Training Budget - This delivery method tends to be the least expensive as everything
       (lectures, courseware, mentoring & exams) is delivered online.

      Travel Budget - This delivery method has zero impact on the travel budget

      Time out of the Office - Dependent on how the students structure their self-study schedule
       this delivery method may or may not require any time out of the office.

      Content Retention / Exam Pass - This program provides a lot of one-on-one online support to
       help students retain the content and pass the exam on the first try. Our experience to date
       with this approach is showing pass rates at the 85% level with average student scores
       coming in the 80% range


ITIL Exam Options

All organizations approved by APM Group Limited (the official ITIL Accreditor) as examination
institutes (EIs) are audited by independent auditors appointed by APM Group in accordance with the
principles of international best practice standards. If the systems used by the applicant organizations
align with these guidelines, they will be granted permission to administer the scheme for ITIL
accreditation and qualifications and will also be offered a place on the Qualifications Board. Under
the contracts signed with APM Group, EIs are allowed to undertake the following activities:

      Approve training organizations through the standards and mechanisms audited and agreed
       by APM Group.
   Administer examinations via those organizations they have approved using the standards
       and mechanisms agreed by APM Group.

EIs are permitted to operate an ITIL examination scheme through a network of Accredited Training
Organizations, and Accredited Trainers with Accredited materials.

All EIs also have representation on the ITIL Qualifications Board; the governance and standards
setting body for the ITIL scheme.

The selection of an Examination Institute often revolves around its geographic proximity, processes
for qualifying and providing examination proctors, and ability to handle special examination
requirements.

The thing to remember when selecting an examination institute is that they all distribute the
same exams globally. The key difference comes down to the following

Exam Delivery Methods - With ITIL V3 supporting multiple training delivery models it's important for
the EI to support easy to use delivery methods that align with the training model the student has
selected. One thing to remember is to get the details behind their offering as they are not all created
equal. Delivery models include:

           o   Public Testing (PT) centers offering both paper based and online exams
           o   Onsite Testing (OST) using either paper based or online exams
           o   Online Testing (OLT) online exams using an online web cam proctor

Customer Service - There are two schools of thought on customer service in the EI world. Some
leave everything up to the student to coordinate while others provide support services to assist the
student throughout the process of scheduling an exam. Other services include certificate and ITIL
pin distribution.

The current Examination Institutes are:

ITIL Certification Roadmap & Credit Profiler
The ITIL® Credit Profiler System.


The ITIL Qualification Scheme introduces a modular credit system for each of the V3 certifications.
All modules are given a credit value, and candidates meeting the requisite entry criteria and
accumulating the required number of credits (22) can apply for ITIL Expert level certification. Click
here to learn more about the V3 Qualification Scheme.

Certifications from earlier ITIL versions (V1 and V2) are also recognized within the system, together
with qualifications endorsed as complementary to the V3 qualification portfolio.

The purpose of the ITIL Credit Profiler is to advise ITIL candidates of the total credit value they have
attained within the scheme and to provide general guidance on potential routes for further study
based on candidate educational or certification objectives.

Create your Credit Profile


Create your credit profile by clicking the ITIL modules you have successfully completed or intend to
take, in the graphic below. Then click the "View Credit Profile" button at the bottom of the page to
see how many credits you have earned in the V3 Scheme.

  • 4. Introduction itSM Solutions® is a CSME accredited training organization (ATO) and a PMI® registered education provider (R.E.P.) specializing in the development of accredited and custom ITIL/ITSM training content that can be delivered in a classroom, virtual classroom (webex), online self-paced video classroom (PC, Smartphone, Tablet) or blended classroom that using a using a highly optimized, delivery and student management model (self-paced videos + instructor led review session + student tracking & reporting) All of the ITIL certification programs offered by itSM Solutions enable students to accumulate ITIL credits that can be applied towards ITIL Expert status with APMG along with PDU credits that can be applied to maintaining ones PMP status with the Project management Institute (PMI®). ITIL Defined According to the official ITIL site (www.itil-officialsite.com), ITIL® is the only consistent and comprehensive documentation of best practice for IT Service Management. Used by thousands of organizations around the world, a whole ITIL philosophy has grown up around the guidance contained within the ITIL books and the supporting professional qualification scheme. ITIL consists of a series of books giving guidance on the provision of quality IT services, and on the accommodation and environmental facilities needed to support IT. ITIL has been developed in recognition of organizations growing dependency on IT and embodies best practices for IT Service Management. The ethos behind the development of ITIL is the recognition that organizations are becoming increasingly dependent on IT in order to satisfy their corporate aims and meet their business needs. This leads to an increased requirement for high quality IT services. ITIL is supported by a comprehensive qualification scheme along with a network of accredited training, consulting and technology providers operating across the globe. The primary benefit coming out of most ITIL projects is a significant reduction in IT's Total Cost of Ownership (i.e., operations cost) along with the ability to deliver reliable, high value services to their client base. Today, ITIL best practices have been adopted by organizations of all sizes including Disney, IBM, Caterpillar, Shell Oil, Boeing and governments across the globe. .The five Books of ITIL are: Service Operation (SO) Service Operation introduces, explains and details delivery and control activities to achieve operational excellence on a day-to-day basis. Readers will find many of the familiar processes from the former service support and service delivery books, which have been updated where necessary.
  • 5. Service Transition (ST) Service Transition provides guidance and process activities for the transition of services in the operational business environment. It covers the broader, long-term change management role, release and deployment practices, so that risks, benefits, delivery mechanisms and the support of ongoing operational services are considered. Service Design (SD) In order to meet the current and future business requirements, Service Design provides guidance on the production and maintenance of IT policies, architectures, and documents for the design of appropriate and innovative IT infrastructure service solutions and processes. Service Strategy (SS) A view of ITIL that aligns business and IT so that each brings out the best in the other. It ensures that every element of the Service Lifecycle is focused on customer outcomes and relates to all the companion process elements that follow. Subsequent titles in the core set will link deliverables to meeting the business goals, requirements and service management principles described in this publication. Continual Service Improvement (CSI) Alongside the delivery of consistent, repeatable process activities as part of service quality, ITIL has always emphasized the importance of continual improvements. Focusing on the process elements involved in identifying and introducing service management improvements, this publication also deals with issues surrounding service retirement. ITIL 2011 The most current release of the library is titled ITIL 2011. It was released to the market on July 29th, 2011. The 2011 edition provides the following updates to ITIL 2007 ITIL 2011 - Service Strategy The concepts within the publication have been clarified, without changing the overall message. The updated publication includes more practical guidance and more examples where relevant. The newly defined process of strategy management for IT services is responsible for developing and maintaining business and IT strategies, and there are now separate descriptions of business strategy and IT strategy. Financial management has been expanded, and business relationship management and demand management are now covered as processes. ITIL 2011 - Service Design Throughout the updated ITIL Service Design publication, there has been particular focus on alignment with ITIL Service Strategy. A number of concepts and principles have been clarified, most significantly the flow and management of activity throughout the overall service design stage with the addition of the ‘design coordination’ process. Other significant clarifications include the five aspects
  • 6. of service design, the design of the service portfolio and the terminology related to views of the service catalogue. ITIL 2011 - Service Transition The structure, content and relationships of the configuration management system (CMS) and service knowledge management system (SKMS) have been clarified to help the reader to understand these key concepts. There is new content explaining how a change proposal should be used. The evaluation process has been renamed ‘change evaluation’ and the purpose and scope have been modified to help clarify when and how this process should be used. The service asset and configuration management process has additional content relating to asset management, and there are improvements in the flow and integration of a number of processes, including change management, release and deployment management, and change evaluation. ITIL 2011 - Service Operation Process flows have been updated or added for all processes including request fulfillment, access management and event management. Key principles – including guidance around service requests and request models, and proactive problem management – have been clarified. The publication has been updated to explain how basic events flow into filters and rule engines to produce meaningful event information. The relationship between application management activities versus application development activities is also clarified. Other clarifications include an expanded section on problem analysis techniques, procedure flow for incident matching and further guidance for escalating incidents to problem management. In addition, the guidance for managing physical facilities has been expanded. ITIL 2011 - Continual Service Improvement The seven-step improvement process – and its relationship with the Deming ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’ cycle and knowledge management – has been clarified. The CSI model has been renamed the CSI approach and the concept of a CSI register has been introduced as a place to record details of all improvement Initiative’s within an organization. Minor changes have been made throughout the book to clarify the meaning and to improve readability. Particular emphasis has been made on documenting the interfaces from CSI to other lifecycle stages. More details on the 2011 changes can be found on the official ITIL site at http://www.itil- officialsite.com/ ITIL Certifications Today, ITIL offers a total of 11 certifications to the IT community. ITIL has accommodations in its syllabi to support delivery in a classroom or virtual classroom using an accredited instructor or in self-study or blended learning environment using a combination of online self-paced training
  • 7. programs combined with accredited instructor or mentoring resources. Listed below is a brief description of the training programs currently being offered to the market place. ITIL Foundation Certification The foundation-level certification program targets IT professionals looking to become a general practitioner in the practice of IT Service Management. While these practitioners have a general understanding of ITSM, they have a limited knowledge of any specific process, function or service lifecycle area. This is the first stop for those looking to become ITSM Specialists, Practice Managers or Experts. Although not required, candidates are highly encouraged to complete a classroom or online program prior to sitting for the exam. The exam is a forty question multiple choice exam and can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in an examination institute testing center. Candidates will be awarded two ITIL credits and in most cases 18 PDU’s upon successful completion of the Foundation exam. ITIL Intermediate - Lifecycle Specialist The lifecycle certification series targets individuals looking to specialize in one or more of the five ITIL Lifecycle practice areas. Historically, these roles involve individuals from the Planning, Design and Improvement areas within the IT Engineering, Application and Project/Program Management organizations. Candidates must hold a ITIL V3 Foundation certificate plus successfully complete a classroom or online training program to sit for the Lifecycle exams. The exams are eight question complex multiple choice exams and can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in an examination institute testing center. Candidates will be awarded four ITIL credits and in most cases 22 PDU’s every time they successfully complete a Lifecycle exam. Lifecycle certification classes include: Service Operation (SO), Service Transition (ST), Service Design (SD), Service Strategy (SS) and Continual Service Improvement (CSI). ITIL Intermediate - Capability Specialist The capability certification series targets individuals looking to specialize in one or more of the four ITIL Capability practice areas. Historically, these roles involve individuals from the service implementation, maintenance and support areas within the IT Implementation and Operations organizations. Candidates must hold a ITIL V3 Foundation certificate plus successfully complete a classroom or online training program to sit for the Capability exams. The exams are eight question complex multiple choice exams and can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in an examination institute testing center. Candidates will be awarded four ITIL credits and in most cases 38 PDU’s every time the successfully complete a Capability exam. Capability certification classes include: Operational Support & Analysis (OSA), Release, Control & Validation (RCV), Planning, Protection & Optimization (PPO), Service Offerings & Agreements (SOA).
  • 8. ITIL Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC) The Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC) program leads to the ITIL V3 Service Manager Expert certificate. This capstone certification completes the Lifecycle and Capability streams by focusing on the ancillary knowledge required to implement and manage the necessary skills associated with the use of the Lifecycle practices. Candidates must have accumulated 17 ITIL credits by completing a series of Lifecycle or Capability certification programs to qualify to sit for the exam. The exam is an eight question complex multiple choice exam and can be taken in a classroom, online with a web cam proctor or in an examination institute testing center Candidates will be awarded five ITIL credits and in most cases 38 PDU’s upon successful completion of the MALC exam. ITIL Training Delivery Methods There has been lots of discussion lately about what ITIL training method is best to learn from. There are those who say classroom is best because it's where you have direct access to an experienced instructor as well as other IT professionals willing to share their thoughts and experiences. There are others who say e-learning is the way to go as it provides the student with scheduling and learning flexibility plus online mentoring services at a low price. There are others who say blended learning is best as it provides the best of both instructor led classroom and e-learning. The bottom line is they're all good as each delivery method is a nail to someone's training hammer. Listed below is a detail description of each delivery method along with a summary of how each method impacts training, travel and time out of the office budgets along with the student's ability to pass the exam on the first try (i.e., return on investment). The Three T's and one R of ITIL Training There are four basic things training coordinators need to think about when connecting a student with an ITIL training delivery method. The first is Training budget. It makes no sense to go shopping at Tiffany's if you only have a dollar in your pocket. The second is Travel. Most companies have put a hold on travel until the economy gets better. My gut tells me that even when it gets better there will still be a hold on it especially when management discovers that things still get done without people jumping on airplanes. The third is Time out of the office. The downturn in the economy has forced companies into a position of doing more with less. With that being the case it's almost impossible for anyone to leave for a couple of days let alone a week. The fourth is Return on Investment (ROI). That is, if employers (or wives) are paying for the training they want some assurance that the student will pass the exam on the first try and that he or she will return with knowledge they can be used on the job. Listed below is a summary of the ITIL training methods available, their impact on a student’s training, travel and time out of the office budgets and their value in helping a student retain the content and pass the exam on the first try.
  • 9. ITIL Classroom or Virtual Classroom Training ITIL classroom certification programs are delivered by an accredited instructor to groups of students assembled in a physical or virtual (webinar) classroom with the exam being administered on the last day of the program however students willing to use a new web cam proctoring method now have the option to set them up on their own. Training options include:  Public, open enrollment classes delivered in a training center to a group of students  Public, open enrollment virtual (webinar) classes delivered online to a group of students  Corporate classes delivered onsite to a group of six or more students  Corporate virtual classes delivered online to a group of six or more students  Courseware licensing programs for IT organizations looking to deliver their own program Budget & Productivity Impact  Training Budget - This is the most expensive solution in the market today due to its significant expense structure (venue, instructor, operational overhead etc.)  Travel Budget - Unless you can find a virtual or locally hosted class some travel dollars will be required.  Time out of the Office - Plan three days for Foundation and the Service Lifecycle classes and five days for Capability and Managing Across the Lifecycle.  Content Retention / Exam Pass - This is one of those depend situations. That is, if the instructor is good and the student follows all the rules (i.e., reads the corresponding ITIL books, studies in the evening etc.) the likelihood of passing the exam is in alignment with the average international pass rates of 77.5% ITIL Blended Learning Training Programs ITIL blended learning training programs use a combination of online self-paced training programs combined with accredited instructor or mentoring resources plus student management services. Exams are typically delivered on the last day of the program however students willing to use a new web cam proctoring method now have the option to set them up on their own. Training options include:  Public, open enrollment classes delivered in a training center to a group of students  Public, open enrollment virtual (webinar) classes delivered online to a group of students  Corporate classes delivered onsite to a group of six or more students  Corporate virtual classes delivered online to a group of six or more students  Courseware licensing programs for IT organizations looking to deliver their own programs Budget & Productivity Impact  Training Budget - With minimal instructor and venue expense, this delivery method tends to price out somewhere between classroom and online self-paced training.
  • 10. Travel Budget - If the instructor led review session is delivered online the impact to the budget is zero. If delivered in a classroom, the impact will be minimal based on the reduced number of days required for the instructor to be onsite.  Time out of the Office - Plan one day for Foundation and two days for all other programs.  Content Retention / Exam Pass - This program provides a lot of one-on-one support to help students retain the content and pass the exam on the first try.
