I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on becoming an accredited ITIL trainer.
I have had my "Red badge" for almost 12 months and have spent the last 10 months delivering V2 of the Foundation course "in house" for a large organisation. Without going in to details, as a non ITIL/ISEB accredited trainer (but as a trainer with some 15 years experience delivering a variety of subjects)I have been delivering V2 course material to a large number of personnel who then go to an examination provider to sit the Foundation Exam.
My success rate is currently 100% (something I am quietly quite proud of)
Any advice on how to become an accredited trainer would be welcomed.
All I can tell you was how I got certified as a trainer -
I was sponsored by an existing accredited training company. There is a great shortage of trainers, so it is worth approaching training companies. (There is a list of Accredited training providers on the ITSMF members-only site). I had to fill out a form, saying what my ITIL experience was, and if I had any training experience (I hadn't as such, but had mentored junior team members and presented/explained new processes to customers in previous jobs, so I put that down. This is becoming more stringent, but you have classroom experience, so would be OK). Once my form was accepted, i observed a couple of courses, and then went as an extra trainer on a couple more, where I taught a couple of the sessions myself. I got feedback from the training company. I then became a 2nd trainer, where I could accompany another trainer on a manager's course. After a couple of those, I graduated to 1st trainer, which means I can give Foundation and Practitioner courses, and be the 1st or 2nd trainer on Manager courses. The whole thing took a couple of months. _________________ Liz Gallacher,
