I know nothing about intermediate online courses. I am strictly a V2 person. However assuming such courses exist, I think you may get a better response if you:-

1. Explain which providers or sites you have already considered.
2. What constitutes "too expensive".
3. What your expectations are regarding a fair price to pay.

Someone in the industry may then be able to better advise whether there are better value for money courses and / or whether your expectations need to be reset.

The classroom course for ITIL are just like the classroom course for Microsoft etc. They will have similar prices or higher

What do you think the course should cost ?

Dear Ahmed,

Are you looking at ITIL Expert level Training on Capability OR Lifecycle Path.

Not sure as to what price you found these on the net.

These courses will be 3-5 days classroom training, or a very detailed elearning course. If classroom-based, they well be presented by a trainer who has extensive experience and has had to pass multiple exams. as such, they are never going to be cheap. The exam cost has also to be included.
Lack of interest/recession has meant that course numbers are small, pushing up the individual price.
Although you may get a good deal if you call a training company the day before a course, you must be prepared to make a significant investment of time and money if you wish to pursue these qualifications.

Hi Ahmed,

Are you new to networking? If so, it's better to take up some pre-reading, here's a good resource that'll, ITIL V3 guide to asset management, ISBN 9780113311064.

If you are looking for classroom certification, you can pass first time with Firebrand Training with guaranteed ITIL certification. If you fail you can, you can train again for free. If you like, after that, you can progress to becoming CCNA qualified which is the next step. Contact us if you are looking for further information to support you.



I hope this helps with you request.
