The ITIL certification scheme provides a modular approach to the ITIL framework, and is comprised of a series of qualifications focused on different aspects of ITIL best practice to various degrees of depth and detail. The tiered structure of the qualification offers candidates flexibility relating to the different disciplines and areas of ITIL and the ability to focus their studies on key areas of interest.
ITIL has recently evolved from ITIL v3 to ITIL 4 with a clear transition journey from one scheme structure to the other. ITIL v3 Foundation qualified candidates are encouraged to move straight to ITIL 4 Foundation to keep their skills up-to-date. Intermediate candidates can decide to collect 17 v3 credits to enable them to transition to ITIL 4 with one course and one exam.
ITIL 4 Certification Scheme
The certification scheme below is aligned with ITIL v3 and has been streamlined to provide clear paths for practitioners to continue their ITIL journey.
