Why study this course

Learn about ITIL® 4 which is built on the established core of best practice in the ITIL guidance, and be prepared to sit the ITIL 4 Foundation Certificate exam, in three days!

ITIL is the most widely adopted approach for IT Service Management in the world. ITIL 4 provides a practical and flexible approach to move to the new world of digital transformation and embrace an end-to-end operating model for the delivery and operation of products and services. ITIL 4 also provides a holistic end-to-end picture that integrates frameworks such as Lean IT, Agile, and DevOps.

Our ITIL training is designed to help participants gain an extensive understanding of the ITIL 4 principles and to show how they can improve their work and the work of their organisation as a whole with the ITIL 4 guidance. In addition, the course offers a rich learning experience that helps the participants understand ITIL 4 and relate ITIL to their own work environment. The course will inspire participants to serve as a change champion by sharing and using what they have learned, and continue to learn, about ITIL 4 to lead and mentor others.


This course includes a digital copy of the ITIL 4 Foundation Official Guidance handbook, and is supported by additional learning tools such as post-course reading materials, a quick reference guide, and practical material for reference back in the workplace.

A voucher for the ITIL 4 Foundation Exam is also included.


The ITIL 4 Foundation Exam is an online proctored exam through PeopleCert. It is a 60 minute exam, with 40 multiple choice questions and a pass mark of 65%. Practice exam papers are provided as part of the course materials, and reviewed to assist in preparation.

After passing the exam, each student’s certificate will be made available to them via PeopleCert.

It is highly recommended that you spend some time each evening of this course reviewing and consolidating what you’ve learned, to be well prepared for the exam.
