ISO/IEC 20000 Career Path Courses:

It is important to note that ISO/IEC 20000 IT Service Management Foundation Certification is not a different version or flavor of the ITIL Foundation Certification.

How Does ISO/IEC 20000 Differ from ITIL?

The main focus of ISO/IEC 20000 is on the understanding and development of a service management system (SMS).  The SMS is the unique feature that allows organizations to successfully adopt and adapt service management.  It is also the feature that differentiates ISO/IEC 20000  from ITIL. 

Does it Help to Know ITIL or be ITIL Certified?

Being ITIL Foundation Certified or knowledgeable provides a great background for individuals getting  started in ISO/IEC 20000. However,  In ISO/IEC 20000 you will learn how to manage your initiative.  If you want to become ISO/IEC 20000 Certified, you will need to take this class or have equivalent knowledge and fully understand the standard  in order to pass the exam.   Being ITIL Foundation Certified will not prepare you to pass the ISO/IEC 20000 exam.

What Does this Course Cover?

This course identifies the essential components of IT Service Management that meet the ISO/IEC 20000 standard. It discusses defining and agreeing to service requirements, planning resources to meet business outcomes, supporting service delivery and providing value for the customer and the service provider so you can make the necessary changes in your organization to have a positive impact on the services you provide.

The Foundation course provides key information and concepts for IT Service Management based on ISO/IEC 20000 as well as its relationships with other areas of information management so you can connect the information to what you’ve previously learned about ITSM. It builds the fundamental skills and knowledge enabling one to participate in organizational teams working within Service Management so your team can work more effectively together and have a stronger impact. We place emphasis on the service management system (SMS) and service management processes, specifically the core concepts and basic terminology of IT service management based on ISO/IEC 20000 in order to properly prepare you for the Foundation exam.

Once you have completed ISO/IEC 20000: IT Service Management Foundation and successfully passed the exam, you will want to take the ISO/IEC 20000 : IT Service Management Associate course. This course builds on the foundation knowledge, taking the high-level information gained in the Foundation course and providing additional depth and practical context. The Associate has a much more ‘global’ view of the standard as well as the daily activities required to maintain or achieve ISO/IEC 20000 implementation.

The course teaches to the current standards: ISO/IEC 20000-1 and SO/IEC 20000-2:2012.
