The ITIL Practitioner Module builds upon the knowledge gained at Foundation level and provides you with the ability to identify and deliver service improvements using a practical approach to adopting and adapting the ITIL framework.
The main areas of focus are the Continual Service Improvement (CSI) approach, using nine guiding principles and three critical competencies.
You must hold the Foundation Certificate in IT Service Management (the V3 Foundation or V3 Foundation plus Bridge Certificate. Training is not mandatory although highly recommended through an accredited training provider.
Service Capability Modules
The Service Capability modules provide an alternative route to ITIL Expert certification. These courses are aimed towards a more ‘practitioner-based’ audience and provide an in-depth understanding of the various ITIL processes.
However, the Service Lifecycle and Capability module streams are by no means mutually exclusive, but are complimentary to each other. Candidates who study for Service Lifecycle certification may also opt to study the associated capability stream cluster.
