ITIL® V3 Practitioner classroom

2019 will see the launch of the highly-anticipated ITIL® 4. This new version of ITIL retains all the best bits of V3, but with more emphasis on collaborative working, along with a holistic end-to-end view of product and service delivery.

The ITIL V3 qualification will continue to be available until AXELOS advise that the transition period will cease. Therefore we would encourage you to transition to the new scheme as soon as possible. 

Once the V3 qualification is phased out, the Practitioner level certification will no longer exist.


About the course
