I am an IT Consultant project manager (PMP) with prior technical background. Although I manage mostly software development projects, on some occassions, I have managed Infrastructure projects. In some of the interviews, the interviewers asked if I had an ITIL certification or was atleast familiar with ITIL basics. So, I have decided to take the ITIL foundation exam. Here are my questions:
- Currently, I just want to take the foundation exam only. Does ITIL foundation certification itself have any value or do we have to take either Practitioner or Manager exam as well?
- After getting the foundation certification, are we allowed to use it as a designation? ex. John Doe, ITIL
- How long is the Foundation certification valid? In case, I decide to take the Practitioner or Manager certification sometime after a few years, will it be still valid??

Hi guys, like Loke, i am keen in getting the ITIL foundation Service Manager. However, i think this being a foundation course will only make u realised there is more for you to learn. Thus, it will be good to follow up with a practitioner or even a Master Black Belt. This will enable you to implement ITIL in your current IT infrastructure.
I am planning to take the foundation course in the coming April. If you are base in Singapore, maybe we can arrange to take the course at the same time. Presently, i am looking into training institute like, Pink elephant and Katasystems.
Like you, i am a PMP too, thus we are entitle a 14hrs (or mayb 15hrs) of PDU.
