Course Overview

Duration: 3 Days

In supporting the modern business, organizations need to effectively manage and run IT services, process and functions. This course is a three-day highly interactive instructor-led training that enables the candidate to attain the relevant skills to apply ITIL best practices in the organization confidently and successfully.

It is imperative to acknowledge that understanding ITIL guidance alone does not guarantee the success of IT Service Management (ITSM) initiatives. The course builds on the “what” and “how” learn in ITIL Foundation and equip participants with the know-how to identify, implement and strategize ITSM improvement in the organization using the Adopt-and-Adapt approach understood in the Foundation course. Coupled with deeper insights into the various tools explored during the course in managing stakeholders, managing organizational change, effective use of communication and using measurements to guide improvements make this a very practical guidance for all ITSM professionals.

Candidates will receive the “ITIL® Practitioner Guidance” publication which incorporates various references from existing ITSM and ITIL publications, worksheets, case studies, tips and recommended further reading to enhance the training experience and available to use in the candidate’s respective organization.

At the end of the course, candidates may sit the ITIL Practitioner examination. The ITIL Practitioner certificate is awarded to candidates passing the examination.
