Distance learning available for ITIL

IT Governance : 17 August, 2009  (New Product)
IT Governance has launched a low cost distance learning option for training in IT Infrastructure Library giving wider reach to the technology
Self-employed IT contractors around the world are finally being offered a practical and affordable means of improving their education and marketability in best practice IT service management.

IT Governance, the one-stop shop for compliance expertise, is launching a comprehensive range of distance learning courses covering all aspects of ITIL, the IT Infrastructure Library of best practice processes for IT service management.

Alan Calder, Chief Executive of IT Governance, says: "Understanding ITIL is an increasingly vital qualification for IT contractors, but for too long they have struggled to familiarise themselves with ITIL cost-effectively. Traditionally, ITIL courses have been classroom-based and can therefore be costly and impractical, requiring so much time out of the office that consultants have either struggled to carry on with their day-to-day work or rejected the idea entirely. Now, consultants can use our distance learning courses to understand ITIL at their convenience, from their own homes or offices. With that knowledge in hand, their chances of winning new contracts increase dramatically."

The core areas of IT Governance's easy-to-follow ITILv3 distance learning and certification courses are:

• 'ITILv3 Foundation Certificates', including examination and non-examination options and a revision kit;
• 'ITILv3 Intermediate Lifecycle Stream', including 'Service Strategy', 'Service Design', 'Service Operation', 'Service Transition' and 'Continual Service Improvement';
• 'ITILv3 Intermediate Capability Stream', including 'Release, Control & Validation', 'Operational Support & Analysis', 'Service, Offering & Agreements' and 'Planning, Protection & Optimisation';
• 'Managing Across the Lifecycle'.

Furthermore, IT contractors needing to migrate from ITILv2 to ITILv3 can study 'ITILv2 Service Manager to ITILv3 Expert Bridge'.

A complete breakdown of the IT Governance distance learning courses on offer, including PRINCE2 qualifications, can be found on the IT Governance web site.

Calder continues: "Our distance learning courses naturally conclude with an accredited examination at any one of a range of centres around the country. These qualifications are more important now than ever before, as IT consultants need to prove their competence to potential clients, as well as providing an even better service to existing clients.

"Distance learning is the way forward for modern IT governance education. It's cost-effective, convenient and it crosses all borders. Distance learning allows anybody, anywhere, to understand and meet internationally-approved IT compliance standards. At IT Governance, we have the most comprehensive set of packages available and we can deliver those services quickly through friendly, educated staff."
