Can anybody tell me if ITIL v3 trainings are already available at Practitioner level?
I've passed my foundation exam some time ago and I want to take Practitioner exam in the near future but I'm wondering if it makes sense to make an exam that will be obsolete in the near future.
The new exams are not out yet - but V2 exams will not be obsolete, but will be worth points towards your V3 Diploma. _________________ Liz Gallacher,

I read the following abt the ITIL practioner training. Hope this answers ur question...
"It is very reassuring that existing ITIL qualifications will not be invalidated because core ITIL principles are not
changing. In fact, the latest practitioner programs, for example "ITIL Practitioner in Release and Control" and
"ITIL Practitioner in Support and Restore," already follow the new terminology, philosophy, and organizational
structure of ITIL v3.
However, as is often the case when a certification changes, it will take a while for the certification bodies to
catch up. The plan is for new certifications to arrive 6 – 12 months after the delivery of ITIL v3. From a practical
perspective, this means within the next 12 – 18 months.
This does not mean that you should put your ITIL plans and training on hold, however. You should consider
implementing your ITIL plans and taking your ITIL training now for the following reasons.
• The OGC and ITSMF have declared that current ITIL v2 certifications will remain valid, useful, and relevant,
so there is no reason to wait for v3.
• While the core ITIL principles are not changing, the tests will change. This will require significant
changes to existing training programs and re-training of instructors. Current trainers and training programs
are very effective so taking advantage of current expertise could be a benefit to students.
• The latest ITIL Practitioner certification programs, already available, reflect the changes in ITIL v3. Taking
ITIL Practitioner in Release and Control (IPRC) or ITIL Practitioner in Support and Restore (IPSR) now prepares
you for the change in focus coming with ITIL v3.
• The existing ITIL underpins the ISO 20000 and 20001 standards for organizational certification, and the
new ITIL will provide the same support.
There is no reason to wait for ITIL v3 certification exams. The new material will be virtually the same at the
Foundation level, and the newly updated and currently available Practitioner cluster programs already reflect
ITIL v3 to a large degree. As is often the case when major changes occur to a certification, getting your certification
“before the test changes” is probably a very good idea for the reasons previously listed. Current training
programs are very effective and offer real benefits."
