Your ITIL path will begin with the ITIL Foundation Course/Certification and this level does not require official training. However, the cost of the exam from PeopleCert is $349 and you want to make sure you are prepared to pass the exam on the first try. Because the exams are expensive, we highly recommend that students take an accredited course to prepare for the exam.

Accredited courses can be self-paced, live online and live classroom based. The most cost effective courses on self-paced/on-demand. When you get into live training the price goes up. All methods are great. Thing you need to ask yourself is, how do you learn best?

Accredited training providers have to create courses that align to the AXELOS syllabus and cover everything on the exam. They include official exam sample papers and many other items. Today, the price of the self-paced/on-demand courses is so good, that you will spend less and learn more with one of these courses than you will searching the internet for free information.

Let me know your thoughts. I have been involved in providing training for 29 years. Have delivered live classroom courses, live- online courses and self-paced/on-demand courses. What are your thoughts about the best way to get the training you need to prepare to successfully pass the ITIL Foundation Exam on the first try?
