    As long as you have some way to get the prerequisite courses, you can take ITIL as far as you feel like. That's probably the main reason many people only have foundations (can't get the higher ones without taking the courses).
    To be eligible for any of the Intermediate exams candidates need to complete mandatory accredited training.

    Before giving any advice (other than what you already expressed some interest in), I would want to know a few more details about the type of work you do today, as well as the type of work you desire to do more of in the future.

    What specific technologies have you worked with? Microsoft, Cisco, VMware?

    Also, list out a short summary of what you have worked on under these technologies.

    Example

    Microsoft: Worked with Windows Server 2008/2012 and Windows 7
    Created users, reset passwords, Created the AD domain and configured the sites.

    We have really have no clue what your level of experience is, you need to list specific job functions that you have performed.

    Having 3 years may not give you right amount of experience for process role/incident manager/change manager. If you have a M.S degree it may give you an outside shot at best.
    Giving more specific example may help us in guiding you.
