In addition to the alphabet soup of certifications I have (MCSE: Security, CCNA, MCITP: Database Administrator, etc.), how to I correctly identify or designate my ITIL certification on resumes, sig files, and the like?

I've yet to find an authoritative answer, and all of the other certs I have list specific requirements for how to use the certification designators.

You can put any thing you like after your name

John Hardesty, BBFMIC, FAB, etc

but there is no official extension for ITIL

while it is nice to put

John Hardesty, MCP, MCSE, MCSE+I, etc

it does not have the same meaning and oomf as

Dr. John Hardesty, M.D. or JJD

I list the Manager's certificate (Red Badge) in my email signatures at work but that is because I am doing the role.

I put the course and the certificate in my CV/resume but that's about it.

The only certification I've ever used a designation on is the PMP. I only have used that when I am in the role as a Project Manager. I don't use it as a 'hey look what I have!' title but more as a 'Feel free to use PMBOK terminology with me and I will understand it'. Back when I held my MCSE, CCNA and CCNP I never put that on an email signature. I don't even do it with my MBA which trumps about ever thing I've held.

For the ITIL foundation which I take in about 2 weeks I only plan on throwing it on my resume and informing my current company that I knocked it out for them.
