Apart from self-learning, students receive an e-reader/iPad or electronic document with the Reference Materials for the course, avoiding the printing of thousands of pages of paper.

• Access to a Select Community: After completing the program, students gain access to a select community of ITIL® Experts, allowing them to join a continuous learning program.

Prerequisites

• 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 Lifecycle 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 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 modules. The self-study modules focus on the knowledge component of the Lifecycle 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 4-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 SS, SD and part of CSI. The second session includes the second part of CSI followed by ST and SO.
• 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 self-study and classroom as well. The classroom session is 2-days; the online learning modules include 12-hours of content.
