No, ITIL V3 certificates do not expire. Once you have them they are yours for life. V3 exams will be offered until June 2020 for sure so you have plenty of time to get the certificates you need. If you get 17 V3 credits or more, then you only need to take 1 ITIL 4 course, the managing professional transition module and exam to become an ITIL 4 Managing Professional. And, when you do this, you only need to take 1 ITIL Strategic Leader course to get the ITIL 4 Strategic Leader certificate.

A good question came in privately to me: ITIL is valid for Life Time, i.e once you are ITIL V3 Foundation certified, it means you are certified for lifetime. Its not like other certifications such as PMP or CSM which has a certain period of validity.

The answer is yes, ITIL certifications are valid for lifetime. There are currently no continuing education requirements. New versions come out with new certifications and the ones you have always stay valid.
