G'day all.

I've been looking into getting my ITIL Foundation Certificate, and am a little confused.

Page 5 of the ITIL Service Management Practicies V3 Qualifcations Scheme states that you need the equivalent of 16.25 hours of instruction, including exam prep with an ATO. However, searching the forums here, I've read accounts of some people obtaining their foundation certificate based solely on self-study.

Which is correct? Do I need to take an actual course, or can I simply study on my own and book a test?

Thanks.

If you sit in a classroom, the course is 2 1/2 days
if you take the online course, the material is usually presented to take the similar time

If you use an authorized training company that does self study online courses, their course would meet the requirement

You do not need to take a self-study/on-line course, or a classroom course, you can do it self-study, but get hold of the syllabus and the mockexams, otherwise you may study areas which are outside the syllabus
