Minimum amount that any one can spend to pass one module in either Capacity or Life Cycle stream is 500 Euros Book & online cheap course). Since minimum 5 modules to be completed to acrue minimum required points to clear intermediate level, total minimum cost is 2500 Euros.

I have stated my opinion before... ITIL v3 in itself, as a set of good (now I guess) practices is... well, good I guess. In general it has decent information that allows me to make improvements for my clients and within my own company... or so I would like to believe.

As a certification path it is a money grab from both training institutions and the people taking the exams.

I also think that since that a lot of folks who take V3 classes are sent to do so by their organizations, it probably doesn't not represent individual holder's wealth. Neither do I think holding V3 certifications represent individual holders intelligence... let's face it, ITIL is not a rocket science.

Also, to go all ITIL on you - define intelligence.

So to me it's #4 - neither.

ITIL may not be rocket science, but then I am not a rocket scientist or any other kind of mental giant. I worked hard to pass RCV. And it was self funded. And now I am working hard to pass OSA - also self funded.
My motivation? To continue to stake a claim in this competitive industry. As an 'old person' I feel I have to prove I can cut it with the younglings.

...used to be the opposite - the "younglings" had to prove their worth. What's the world coming to? 8O
