Charles Sturt University in Australia have some ITIL certification (Foundation, RCV, OSA) as part of its post grad IT courses.
It is run as distance education and can be accessed globally. The resources are really good. You get the appropriate ITIL book, a study guide, an on line interactive class once a week, other resources plus access to the University's library on line. The teacher also puts resources on Second Life, but in my experience there hasn't been much use of this among students. The subject teacher has a huge work ethic and expects the same from the students.
Not sure how much it costs to sit a subject from outside Australia though. For an Australian it costs around half as much as doing it over 3 days with a training company (e.g.Pink, ProActive)
The other thing is, the subjects run for around 3 months as opposed to 3 days. But then you are actually learning, not just cramming your memory.
You can always just do the ITIL units and not continue with the degree / garduate certificate _________________ DYbeach
