With new v3 for ITIL ? Would it make sense to do Master certification for Service manager later Vs Now ?
Please advise.

ITIL version 3 aint out for a while. The exams for the managers (masters) will take time

Despite version 3, having the Managers certificate in V2 will still be valid.

From what I have kept up with for V3 it is merely trying to align ITIL and ISO 20000 more and clean up some problems which Frank and skeptic have pointed out.

So if you got the time, money do the managers course now....

especially if you think you will also pass

As John said, the ITIL v2 Manager Certificate will remain valid. As it covers the processes in service support and service delivery, and ITIL v3 still includes all of these (and more besides) in some form or another, albeit in a more logical life cycle approach, the knowledge you gain will remain valid and worthwhile. Furthermore, it will be that much easier for you to 'upgrade' later on should you wish to.

If I had the money right now I'd certainly be taking the v2 Manager Certificate as well!

Latest comment from the IT Skeptic on this is:
"The IT Skeptic concludes that ITIL V3 is a significant change to the structure and content of ITIL. There is clear evidence that qualifications will change as a result. The content taught will change. The structure of the practitioner certificates may well change extensively to reflect the new ITIL book structure and new roles introduced.
While all parties involved are making disingenuous statements that existing qualifications will still be recognised, nobody is saying whether they will be superseded, and it is almost certain they will be updated.

If you are considering buying ITIL certification training at this time, you need to weigh up how urgently you need the IP versus how long you want it to stay current. "

But it looks like we will be well into 2007 or even 2008???? before we see V 3 training?? so how long can anyone wait?
