Hi,

Could someone clarify if I can opt for OSA and SO together? If Yes, will my total credit be (2+7)/22 for persuing ITL expert certification?

Go to the official site for the calculations

As for the specific courses, the courses are broken into two types -

Either way, some courses overlap in what they cover - see the official site

and yes - mathematically speaking, if you have 15 now and you take the two courses - for which the total is 7, you will get 22

which is past the minimum requirement for Expert
So, you would meet the criteria for expert certification

You have to take the courses offered by the training companies

there is no real order to them -

However, some courses - capability or stream - do overlap so be careful

go to the official site for that details - find it yourself

Hi ITIL _guru, can you please answer me?
I have passed my ITIL v3 foundation exam yesterday. When Im thinking about the next level,ther eis a doubt came up in my mind.

Intermediate level have 2 sections as Service Level (5 modules)and service capability(4 sections). Is it necessary to take each module from the each sections in order to pass the intermediate level OR any module out of 9 modules will help to pass the intermediate level.? What is the criteria in order to pass the level?
Can anyone one please answer me?

Kiranta

Did you read this thread

The main crux of it is

Go to the Official site for the most accurate information

If you want to get the ITIL Expert Certification, you need to have a well rounded background in the 5 books

The material is taught in two distinct workflows

how ever,

the point system on th official web site is what you want

seeker,

NOT true. You are required to have completed only 30 hours of classroom training, a standard five day course would give you that. Once you have completed just one Intermediate exam in a classroom you can then self study for the rest and sit the exam directly at BCS for example. Book here:

eprofessional. bcs. org/Portal/Candidate/Exams

This is MUCH cheaper than paying for 5 or more £600 courses. Just buy a few books and lookup the sample papers online. They are just a google away. I passed three Intermediate exams this way and saved a packet.

That is not what AXELOS is stating.

Are the exams you are taking the Official ITIL Intermediate Certication exams in order to get the Expert Certification ?

It might be a tad ambiguous. You could take the following to mean EACH exam requires 21 hours of classroom training or that the Eligibility for the entire Capability course just requires 21 hours of classroom training.

"Eligibility for Capability module examinations
Candidates shall fulfil the following requirements
„ At least 21hours of classroom based instruction with an Accredited Training Organisation (ATO) or the
accredited equivalent via an e-learning provider based on this syllabus, as part of a formal, approved training
course – in addition, 21 hours of personal study are recommended
„ ITIL Foundation Certificate in IT Service Management or v2 to v3 Bridge equivalent"

ucisa.ac. uk/~/media/Files/members/activities/ITIL/Overview/ITIL_v3%20qualification%20scheme%20pdf.ashx

So you can do one or two classroom five day courses and you are set to go to complete the other exams of the capability or lifecycle modules via self study and then take the other exams at an accredited vendor.

However I've passed the exams pretty easily with self study. The only requirements I've ever been asked for are the valid pass certificates. I just have the Release capability module left, then the MALC will obviously be completed in a classroom over 5 days as it's a group activity.

paul

what you said that you have done does not match what Axelos has been saying

Axelos says that the

Intermediate exams must have official training courses associated for that exam - whether classroom or virtual learning

While all I did was the Foundation, Service Strategy and MALC; other people have to take and pay for the entire set to get to the Expert certification

If you found a loophole, more power to you

Well I received no 'proof' I attended classroom training when I did for one of my intermediate exams, and I was not required to show proof I had taken a classroom based course before I took the exam-only at BCS, BCS also ask if you are doing a resit or not and sell you the exam either way. BCS provided and released my passed certs that are identical and from the same authority that provided my certs from the £699 4 day course.

Call it a loophole if you like, it's certainly cheaper. £250 for the exam only compared to £600-£700 per course. Over 4-5 exams that certainly stacks up.
