ITIL® v3 Awareness Course

Course Description:

This ½-day (or optional 1-day) v3 Awareness Course provides learners with the unique opportunity to receive an introduction to the concepts of the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) and IT Service Management (ITSM). It provides an overview of the concepts within the ITIL® best practices domain while also introducing the key ITIL® processes. This non-certificate course explains how ITIL® processes are driven by a Service Lifecycle to provide smooth functioning of organizations, thus ensuring high-quality services to their customers. It has been designed for learners who need a basic awareness of ITIL® v3 as a general interest, as part of a larger program initiative that does not require the intensity and depth of the ITIL® v3 Foundations Course, or for those who may not be sure of their future ITIL® v3 training path and want to assess ITIL®/ITSM viability within their organization.


IT Staff, IT and Business Executives, IT Consultants, Key Business Users, and IT Developers.
