ITIL® Service Operation

Description

This course leads to the ITIL®  Certificate – Service Operation. This is a free-standing qualification, but is also part of the ITIL Intermediate Lifecycle stream, and one of the modules that leads to the ITIL Expert Certificate in IT Service Management.

This course is suitable for individuals who require a detailed understanding of the ITIL Service Operation phase of the ITIL core Lifecycle and how it may be implemented to enhance the quality of IT service provision within an organisation

It is particularly suitable for: CIOs, CTOs, managers, supervisory staff, team leaders, designers, architects, planners, IT consultants, IT audit managers, IT security managers, service test managers and ITSM trainers.

The course covers the management and control of the activities and techniques within the Service Operation stage, but not the detail of each of the supporting processes.

Structure

The course will consist of formal lecturing, group discussions, in-course assignments, and a practice examination paper. Days one to three will consist of detailed learning activities with evening assignments.  The live exam will take place at the end of Day 3.
