Good Morning all,
Having completed my ITIL V2 managers and migrated across to V3 with the Bridge course I am at a loss of what training do do next. Having spent years trying to get funding for my training I am in a strange position of reaching the end of the line in ITIL.
I know I could undertake the V3 specific exams for a greater in depth specific knowledge , however I feel I have the skills to find this out buy self study if needed. The Masters certificate in my opinion will add little value to my knowledge and is just a badge collecting exercise.
My question to you is what course do you think I should undertake to compliment ITIL.
I am thinking ISO 27000 Auditors or PRINCE, but would be open to suggestions.

From my experience (although it may have improved) the only two reasons for taking the Prince certificate are a) badge collecting or b) your (prospective) employer requires you to have the bit of paper.
I learnt less about project management with Prince in the course than I could by having simply read the book for the same length of time. I learnt a lot about passing the exam.
You could also look at ISO20000 and ISO9000 auditing. And CobIT of course. _________________ "Method goes far to prevent trouble in business: for it makes the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and instructs those that have business depending, both what to do and what to hope."

Have a look at the EXIN courses ITSM program according to ISO/IEC 20000 - there is a whole series of courses, which are not just about achieving ISO20K certification, but about using the standard when implementing ITSM. Your ITIL qualifications earn you v=credits in the scheme. _________________ Liz Gallacher,
