What are the Eligibility Requirements for ITIL® Foundation?

The ITIL® Foundation is an entry level Training Program. There are no required prerequisites to take the Exam. However, IT experience is highly recommended.

Where should I be doing my ITIL® Certification Program?

It is a good idea to get trained from an Accredited Training Organization (ATO) since they are approved by APMG and legally permitted to conduct Training and Certification. The syllabus and the trainer will be assessed and approved by AXELOS Limited- the governing body for ITIL®.

What next after ITIL® Foundation?

Once you are ITIL® Foundation Certified, then you are eligible to take Certification Training at the Intermediate level; leading to ITIL® Expert. Please note that there are 2 separate streams at the Intermediate level. Depending on your area of focus you choose a particular stream.

What are the Modules offered in the Intermediate Streams?

ITIL® Certification starts with ITIL® Foundation. There are then two streams at the Intermediate Level. The prerequisite to take any of these intermediate courses is the ITIL® Foundation Certificate. The two streams are:

  1. Service Life Cycle (comprising of 5 modules with 3 credits per module)
    • Service Strategy.
    • Service Design.
    • Service Transition.
    • Service Operations &
    • Continual Service Improvement.
  2. Capability (comprising of 4 modules with 4 credits per module)
    • Operational Support and Analysis
    • Planning Protection and Optimization
    • Release Control and Validation
    • Service Offerings and Agreements
  3. Managing Across Life Cycle (MALC )(1 module with 5 credits)

What are ITIL Credits and how does one acquire them?

To become an ITIL® Expert you are required to have a minimum of 22 credits. The credit per module is mentioned adjacent to each module. You can either do all the modules in Service Life Cycle or do all the modules in Capability or a combination from either stream. However to do MALC, which is mandatory, one needs to have a minimum of 17 credits. Successfully passing MALC will fetch two certifications - one for completing MALC and the second - the coveted ITIL® Expert Certification.

What is the duration for each Course?

The course duration is as per the credits awarded for each module. It is 3 days for Service Life Cycle, 4 days for Capability and 5 days for MALC.

What is the difference between the Service Life Cycle and the Capability Stream?

The Service Life Cycle (SLC) is the core of ITIL®. This stream is for those who are directly delivering customer facing services by executing the ITIL® processes

The Capability module is for those who are basically interested in designing, developing and implementing processes that meet business objectives. For example Process Owners, Process Managers, and Process Practitioners.

Who administers the ITIL® Exams?

The ATO will be offering the examination. Exams are offered paper based and online. Exams taken Online display your result immediately. Whereas it may take 3-4 working days to get the result for a paper based exam. Each Examination Institute has their own model for conducting the Exam.

What is an Examination Institute?

There are many Examination Institutes that are accredited through AXELOS. They simply conduct the Exam. Training Institutes, such as Redstone have to be accredited with one or several of such Examination Institutes such as APMG International, TUV-SUD Germany, EXIN.

What is considered a passing score for the ITIL® examination?

Foundation: A minimum score of 26/40 (65%) is required to pass the Foundation Exam. Intermediate Level Exams: A minimum score of 28/40 (70%) is required to pass an Intermediate Exam.

MALC Exam: A score of 35/50 (70%) is needed to pass the MALC exam.

What is the method of awarding marks?

There are no negative marks given for any of the Examinations. The marks for the Foundation Exam is either a 1 for a correct answer, and 0 for a wrong answer. For the intermediate examination it is different since it is gradient based. The best/correct answer will fetch full 5 marks. An almost right answer will fetch 3 marks. A slightly correct answer will fetch 1 mark, and 0 for a wrong answer.

What is the validity of the Certification?

There is no validation as such. If there is a major change – similar to what happened with ITIL® v2 to ITIL®v3, then there may be a bridge exam. However as of now there is no such indication of a major change coming up in the near future.

How could I develop into an ITIL® approved trainer?

All ITIL® trainers must be "sponsored" by an ITIL® Accredited Training Organization (ATO). They should have minimum of 9 credits. Proof of certification along with profile should be forwarded by the ATOs lead trainer to the Examination Institute. The lead trainer should mentor the new trainer and the Examination Institute will also conduct an interview to assess the capability of the new trainer.
