The Official Guide to Getting your PeopleCert ITIL 4 Managing Professional Certification

Wednesday, 27 September, 2023

The ITIL 4 Managing Professional certification path is focused on how to run successful IT enabled services, teams and workflows.  It was created to help IT Practitioners who work in technology and support digital teams across the business.  The path consists of 4 courses, and we are often asked the best order to take the courses so here is some great input by course author Dr. Suzanne Van Hove.  We hope you find this helpful and look forward to hearing from you.


  1. ITIL 4 Strategist:  Direct, Plan and Improve (DPI) – DPI is a great starting point because it starts you, as the provider, on the strategic thinking/governance piece.
  2. ITIL 4 Strategist:  Drive Stakeholder Value (DSV) – DSV then focusses on the customer journey – understanding what the customer wants/needs and addressing those requirements.
  3. ITIL 4 Strategist:  Create, Deliver & Support (CDS) – CDS then looks at the processes to create, deliver and support the service.
  4. ITIL 4 Strategist:  High Velocity IT (HVIT) – HVIT focusses on how disrupting technologies can be exploited/included in your design.

In my mind, HVIT should be taken last if only due to the heavy focus on technology.  When designing a service, the focus should be on meeting the needs of the consumer and provider. If you already have a great customer focus, then you can jump into HVIT.  Just remember it is the hardest and most intense of the four Managing Professional courses with much memorization of tables included.

Is your Service Desk being Taken for Granted?

Tuesday, 12 September, 2023

Have you ever noticed that the better your Service Desk gets, the more it gets taken for granted?

You’ve risen to every challenge – solved more incidents faster than ever, improved service uptime, built an amazing self-service portal, and you’re even managing service requests and changes – But somehow, you’re being excluded from key decisions and initiatives.

Service Desks who only focus on providing technical support and “break/fix” services, will quickly find their role limited to supporting back-office systems – with little perceived value to the front-line business of their organization.

Engaging with other teams is difficult unless they’re actually resolving an incident. It seems like the better we get at providing support, the more we are put into that box:  “Oh those are the tech support people – we only talk to them when something goes wrong”.

Yet, for many organizations, the Service Desk is the most critical interface between IT and other business units.  The more we understand about how the business works, the more we can provide proactive, business-focused services that increase the importance and role of the Service Desk.

We know that the business is being transformed by Digital Technology, but how do we become part of that journey?  And how do we change our role to stay relevant and valued?

The PeopleCert Accredited ITIL 4 Practitioner: Service Desk Practice Course helps practitioners and managers to explore how to make and keep their organization’s Service Desk relevant and valuable throughout an organization’s digital journey.

In the PeopleCert Accredited ITIL 4 Practitioner: Service Desk Practice Course you will learn how to:

  • Define the scope of the Service Desk to meet changing business needs
  • Integrate your Service Desk into your organization’s value streams
  • Coordinate different types of activity, from incident handling to managing service requests and changes
  • Communicate the proactive role of the Service Desk as part of business initiatives and decisions

Does PeopleCert Require ITIL Master’s to Renew Certification?

Friday, 18 August, 2023

We contacted PeopleCert to find out if individuals who hold the ITIL Master Designation fall under the 3-Year PeopleCert recertification requirement and the answer is YES.

Because ITIL Master is a designation and not a separate exam, it is renewed in the standard way.  For example, if a student takes a new course/exam, then all ITIL 4 certificates the student has obtained, including ITIL Master, will be automatically renewed.

ITIL 4 Recertification – An Easy Step to ITIL Master

Monday, 12 June, 2023

Attention all ITIL 4 Managing Professionals

There is a clear and easy path for you to achieve the ITIL 4 Master Designation and recertify.  PeopleCert has initiated a Recertification program.  The program requires students to recertify every 3-years.  There is a lot of information we need to share with you so please read to the end where we will share a very special offer with you.

Key Points

  1. Recertification is only required for ITIL 4 Certifications.
  2. If you received your last ITIL 4 Certification before June 2020, then your certifications must be renewed by July1, 2023 to keep them active.
  3. If you received your ITIL 4 Certification after June 2020, then you have 3-years from the date of your last certification to renew.
  4. If you do not renew before your certification expires, then it becomes inactive, and your certifications will renew for 3 more years when you take of the actions below.

How to Recertify

There are 3 ways to recertify.  We will discuss them all here and give you the pro’s and con’s.

  1. You can pay for and take the same exam again.
    • We think this is the worst way to recertify.  It is expensive and you really get nothing in return, but renewal.
  2. You can pay $122/year for 3-years for a MyAxelos subscription and record 60 hours a year of study on the MyAxelos site .
    • This is the most expensive way to recertify when you consider what your time is valued at.
  3. You can take a new course, gain a new certification and recertify everything – This is a really good option, and we are not saying this because that is our business.

How Taking A New Course Gets You Recertified

Taking a new course is a great option because PeopleCert has just released the New Practice Manager Certifications and they have  2 GREAT Features:

  • It offers 1-day Practice Courses with Certification exams – Very, Very Economical.
  • It offers a 3-day Practice Manager course and exam that is required to become an ITIL Master.

The New Practice Manager Certification Gets you the ITIL Master Designation

Ok, for those of you that read to this point – thank you.  Here is the scoop.  ITIL 4 Master requires you to hold the ITIL 4 Managing Professional, Strategic Leader and Practice Manager Designations and you automatically become an ITIL Master.

  • For those of you who hold the Managing Professional designation, then you only need to take 2 courses to become an ITIL Master (Digital & IT Strategy and the new ITIL Practice Manager course, Monitor, Support & Fulfil).
  • If you hold the Managing Professional and Strategic Leader Certifications, then you only need 1 course to achieve ITIL 4 Master – the new ITIL 4 Practice Manager course, Monitor, Support & Fulfil).

SPECIAL OFFERS

This offer may not be combined with other offers.  Please note that the Digital & IT Strategy course will go into your account when you make your purchase.  The Monitor, Support & Fulfil course will be available late July  2023 and we will contact you to find out when you would like to activate the course.  Purchasing the package now during the pre-release sale, locks in your savings.

 

ITIL 4 Recertification – When Does it Affect You?

Monday, 22 May, 2023

PeopleCert’s ITIL Recertification Program goes into effect July 1, 2023 and it starts with ITIL 4 Certifications.  Earlier Certifications are exempt.  The program requires students to recertify every 3 years.

How Do I Know When to Recertify?

  • If you received your ITIL 4 Certifications prior to June 2020, then you must renew your certification(s) by July 1, 2023.
  • If you received your ITIL Certifications after June 2020, then you must renew 3 years from the date of certification.

What if I Hold Multiple Certifications?

The good news is that you do not need to recertify each certification. When you recertify one of your certifications, all of them automatically update.

How Do I Recertify?

PeopleCert offers 3 ways to recertify.

  • You can take one of your certification exams over. You have to pay for it, take it and pass it.
  • You can take a new course/certification. When you take and pass the exam, all of your previous certifications are updated.
  • You can purchase the MyAxelos Subscription for $122/year and take 20 hours of classes/year or $366 in total plus 60 hours of study.

Which Method of Recertification is Most Cost Effective?

PeopleCert is releasing a new series of ITIL courses under the heading of Practice Manager. These courses are 1-day and the certification exam is the lowest cost of all the exams – only $237. With these courses you can gain a new certification, valuable knowledge and recertify at the lowest possible price.

The MyAxelos Subscription is well priced too, but you have to allocate 60 hours of your time to achieving your CPD’s. When you factor in what your time is worth, this option becomes very expensive. Paying to take the same exam again, seems like the biggest waste of money. The other options are more economical and give you the opportunity to enhance your skills.
