You may have just completed and passed your ITIL Foundation V3 Assessment and are wondering which V3 Intermediate path I am considering to progress to an ITIL Professional? This is a frequent question from trainees who have completed and passed their basic work.
In this short article, we will examine the 3 main paths you can take to become an ITIL professional. Note that as of July 1, 2010, trainees can only take the V3 Foundation exam as the final V2 Foundation certificate ends on July 30, 2010.
The following paragraphs should highlight the intermediate certification options that you can pursue after obtaining the Foundation Certificate in the ITIL framework.
Becoming an ITIL expert can be achieved through eLearning or alternatively through face-to-face courses. The exams you need to take and the paths to become an ITIL are as follows
1. The ITIL Intermediate Level has two main streams of education
Way 1 – The Life Cycle
Path 2 – ability
Each has their own set of certifications. Both options lead to the last rationalization module Managing Across the Lifecycle.
The Capabilities Stream consists of four individual certifications that you must pass. They are:
Operations and Support Analyst – (OSA)
Release Control Validation – (RCV)
Service Offerings & Agreement and Planning – (SOA)
Planning Protection & Optimization – (PPO)
Successfully passing all certification exams will give you 4 credits and a total of 16 credits, which is enough to proceed to the Managing Across the Lifecycle course.
2. Lifecycle management
The ITIL Managing Across the Lifecycle certification completes the advanced degree program by focusing on the additional knowledge required for implementation and addressing the essential skills associated with using the lifecycle practices are.
This particular module is actually aimed at people who are serious about reaching the ITIL V3 Expert Level for which this particular module is an important prerequisite. But the ITIL Lifecycle module is also very popular.
3. Mix and match
You can also combine both Intermediate Level paths to become an ITIL expert, bearing in mind the fact that you have to achieve the mandatory 22 credits.
