How to Take Your Exam
To be eligible for the examination leading to the ITIL® Planning, Protection and Optimization Certificate, the candidate must fulfil the following requirements:
• Have undertaken at least 30 contact hours (hours of instruction, excluding breaks, with an Accredited Training Organisation (ATO) or an accredited e-learning solution) for this syllabus, as part of a formal, approved training course/scheme
• 2 to 4 years’ professional experience working in IT service management is highly desirable
• Hold the ITIL Foundation Certificate in IT Service Management (or other appropriate earlier ITIL and bridge qualifications)
• It is also recommended that candidates should complete a minimum of 12 hours of personal study, reviewing the syllabus and the pertinent areas within the ITIL Service Design core guide, specifically Chapter 2: Service management as a practice.
The ITIL® Planning, Protection and Optimization Exam is an 8 question multiple choice scenario-based exam and you may take up to 90 minutes to complete it. Each question will have four possible answer options, one of which is worth five marks, one which is worth three marks, one which is worth one mark, and one which is a distracter and achieves no marks.
A passing mark is 70% or higher. When you pass your exam you will receive 4 credits toward your ITIL® Expert certification. This course also qualifies for 6 PDU credits.
The ITIL Qualification Scheme introduces a modular credit system for each of the ITIL qualifications. All modules are given a credit value, and candidates meeting the requisite entry criteria and accumulating the required number of credits (22) can apply for ITIL Expert level of qualification. Click here and select the Certification button to learn more about the Qualification Scheme. Qualifications from earlier ITIL versions are also recognized within the system, together with qualifications endorsed as complementary to the core ITIL portfolio.
