Is it possible to learn about ITIL by taking accredited courses and not get certified?

Monday, 23 May, 2022
Yes and no. PeopleCert requires Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs) to sell exams with every course. Now, you do not need to take the certification exam if you are not interested in certifying, but unfortunately you need to purchase the exam. Hence, the answer is yes and no.

Please note: If you find a provider willing to sell you a full ITIL Foundation course without an exam voucher, it means that the course is not accredited so you don’t know if it is accurate. PeopleCert has a department that works to police unaccredited courses because they want to make sure that students have the highest possible success rate.

Using Older ITIL Certifications

Friday, 20 July, 2018

ITIL_Credit_Scheme

We’ve been getting questions recently on using older ITIL Certificates (ITIL V2) to qualify in the current ITIL Scheme so here is the scoop:

ITIL Foundation Certificate Holder

If you have an ITIL V2 Foundation Certification and did not take the ITIL Foundation Bridge course that is no longer offered, then you have to take the current ITIL Foundation Exam in order to be ITIL V3 Certified and post the ITIL Foundation qualification next to your name.

ITIL Service Manager Certifications

If you hold the previously offered ITIL Service Manager Certificate and want to take any of the ITIL Intermediate examinations, then you are required to pass the current ITIL Foundation examination before you can take any of the ITIL Intermediate examinations.

If you hold the ITIL Service Manager Certificate, and your goal is to get to ITIL Expert then after you pass the current ITIL Foundation exam you will need to take these courses to attain ITIL Expert Status.

  • Service Strategy
  • Continual Service Improvement
  • Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC)

Holders of the old ITIL Practitioner certificates can also enter the current ITIL Certification scheme. To learn more about it, click here.

The Cost of Passing Your ITIL Foundation Certification Exam

Friday, 2 March, 2018

pc-1207686_1920

 

When it comes to the ITIL Foundation exam, students–especially those with experience–often think that they can take the sample exams and then sit for the exam and pass.  While that may be true for some, it is not true for everyone.  The ITIL Foundation course establishes the basis upon which all advanced ITIL courses and certifications are built.  It is full of facts and details which you need to master in order to pass the exam.  Sample Exams are just that, sample exams.  They are not the actual test.  They are created by AXELOS and distributed by PeopleCert for students to test their knowledge.  They do not guarantee success.  In order to guarantee success you have to study.  Master the facts.  Know them.  And be able to apply them in the exam.

While it is true that ITIL Foundation has the highest pass rate of all the ITIL Exams, in the 92 to 94% range, 6 to 8% of the people who take the exam will not pass.  While 6 to 8% seems like a small number, take a look at some eye opening statistics:

  • Over 200,000 people take the exam each year
  • 12,000 to 16,000 people who take the exam will fail.
  • Failure costs $4 to $5.58 million dollars a year ($349/voucher)

How to Pass Your ITIL Foundation Exam the First Time

No one ever likes to hear this, but the answer is you MUST study.   For Foundation taking an accredited course is not required, but it is highly recommended.  Why?  Because you know that you are learning everything you need to know.  Accredited Training Providers cannot offer courses that have not been reviewed and approved.

If you are taking a live course, come prepared.  Do some advance study and then be ready with questions for the instructor.  Make the very best use of their time.  If you are taking a self-paced course, repeat and rewind until you master the concepts.  Do all the course exercises and take the sample exams.  Remember – Sample Exams are just that, a sample.  They were created by AXELOS and are the official exam samples.  You can search the internet for other materials to learn and test your knowledge, but ultimately, you must know the content to pass the exam.

Important Self-Paced Course Features

  • Make sure the course is accredited
  • Make sure you can watch the course as many times as needed
  • Make sure you have access to the instructor to ask questions
  • Make sure the provider includes a Training Plan
  • Make sure the instructor gives you Exam Tips

3 Tips to Passing Your ITIL Exams

Thursday, 4 January, 2018

laptop-2567809_1920

By Guest Author Adrian Bates

Hello, my name is Adrian Bates and I have utilized GogoTraining to acquire three ITIL certifications: ITIL Foundations; ITIL Release Control and Validation Intermediate; and Planning Process and Optimization Intermediate Certification.

Here are a couple of tips and tricks that I use to identify what information is critical to absorb during training. Additionally, I listed a couple of tips that have helped me prepare for an exam.

Tip 1:

Prior to taking the training, I briefly reviewed the “Example Exams” within the module. I tended to focus on the “Question Rationale” portion of the test exam. This explains the reasoning behind how it was determined what the best answer is for each question.  There is an area within the question and rationale titled “Bloom’s Taxonomy Testing Level”. This portion explains what the candidate is expected to understand. This tends to help me during training as key parts of the course tend to stand out as critical pieces of information when reflecting on the example exams.

Tip 2:

Another key piece of information that assists with passing the exams is understanding the functional roles and responsibilities of each process. Each scenario speaks to a specific process and generally asks that you align the process or manager role accordingly.  If you have a fundamental understanding of the Capacity, Availability, Demand, Continuity processes etc…, you will have a higher chance of answering the question correctly.

Tip 3:

The last tip I have is that you thoroughly read the question being asked. Every scenario presents a challenge or obstacle that has to be overcome. Close attention must be paid to what question is being asked. For example, the question may ask something along the lines like; what is the best “approach” to create a successful continuity plan that addresses the issues listed by the Information Security Officer. The answers will vary, some of the answers are known as “distracters”. For example, one of the answers might illustrate a plan. The plan will sound great and may be best way to solve the issue. Keep in mind, you were not asked to solve the problem.  You were asked to assess the best way to approach the problem, and to create a plan that in the end will address the issues.  Again, it is very important that you read the question being asked slowly and to answer it as direct as possible.

Thank you for the opportunity to share my tips and tricks! My goal is to achieve ITIL expert and I have found this technique to be very helpful.  I have passed every exam on the first try and I strongly recommend GogoTraining when preparing for your exams.  Their training material is a great asset. The cost, accessibility to the site, support and training, in my opinion all receive good marks. You will realize this when you take the exam.
