• Basic IT literacy and around 2 years’ IT experience are highly desirable.
• ITIL Foundation (holders of Foundation certificate from an earlier version of ITIL®, e.g.: ITIL® v2, must pass the current ITIL® Foundation exam before attending this course)
• Before starting the Managing Across the Lifecycle component of the program all Capability Exams should have been successfully completed.
The structure of the program and expectations (based on the 12-week ‘classic’ delivery option):
• The program starts with a pre-course conference (kick-off call) that takes place 4-weeks prior to the first (physical or virtual) classroom session. The course instructor and all students participate in this call.
• Before attending classroom sessions, students are required to complete the online self-study of the respective module. The online modules focus on the knowledge component of the Capability courses (Bloom level 1, 2).
• The instructor monitors progress of students during this time, using ITpreneurs’ online campus. The instructor is also available for questions via email or telephone.
• There are two classroom sessions of 5-days each with one month between the two sessions. The classroom sessions are focused on practical application, analysing and synthesizing information (Bloom level 3,4,5). The first classroom session covers SOA and PPO, the second one RCV and OSA.
• After the classroom sessions students complete the online self-study modules with a specific focus on exam preparation. Once students feel ready to take on the exam, they schedule and take the individual exams at a time and date that is convenient to them, but at least before the next classroom session starts.
• The Managing Across the Lifecycle section of the course is the last component of the course. This block comprises of online learning and classroom as well. The classroom session is 2-days; the online learning modules include 12-hours of content.
Other delivery options:
• The Classic: This is the default option for the Expert Track. In this delivery option you will meet your fellow students 3-times over a period of 12 weeks (5 days, 5 days and 2-days) and complete the online self-study between these sessions.
• The Classic Virtual: Same as the default option, but all classroom sessions take place in a Virtual Classroom.
• The Boot Camp: This option requires you to complete all four online self-study Capability modules prior to coming to the classroom. In 10 classroom days all Capability courses are completed. A few weeks later there is another session of 2-days for MALC.
• The Weekend Warrior: Online self-study modules are completed during the weekends. Students come to class one-day a week for 12 weeks where the classroom material is covered.
