A couple of ITIL exam questions

moonlight08moonlight08 Posts: 20Member ■□□□□□□□□□
I'm already ITIL v3 foundations certified and I'm thinking of going to the next level of certification, which is the intermediate level if I understand the scheme correctly.

First, I seem to recall hearing ITIL certifications are good for life, correct? Or at least good until v4 comes out. :D

Second, in order for me to actually become a certified intermediate level person, do I have to complete all modules within, say, Lifecycle or Capability streams? Or can I just pass a couple of the modules that interest me and that will be sufficient to gain intermediate level certification?

Third, what are the specific course/test numbers I would need to take? They don't seem to list it anywhere on the official site.

    Yes, they are good for life.

    You can pick the modules that interest you and take only those if that's what you want. Each module has an 8 question multiple-choice exam at the end of class.
    Third, what are the specific course/test numbers I would need to take? They don't seem to list it anywhere on the official site.

    The exams can only be taken in conjunction with the courses.

    The Lifecycle courses can be found here: http://www.itil-officialsite.com/Qualifications/ITILV3QualificationLevels/ITILLifecycleStream.asp .

    The Capability courses can be found here: http://www.itil-officialsite.com/Qualifications/ITILV3QualificationLevels/ITILCapabilityStream.asp

    I believe the links at that site will download a pdf syllabus for each course.

    These courses are only offered by accredited training organizations. I would recommend looking at your favorite training provider to see which, if any, of these courses they are offering. I am not a big fan of the limited online solutions that are available for these courses.

    I am delivering an ITIL Service Strategy course in mid-March in Chicago. PM me if you would like the enrollment information.
