Real life examples from the instructor’s experience base made ITIL real for me.

Karl B. NASA

Looking to get the ITIL V3 Foundations certification? Look no further than Beyond20. I was completely satisfied with their methods, curriculum, and real world knowledge. Their 3-day course completely prepared me for the certification test. Give them a try; I’m sure you will agree.

Great instructor - really helped us to understand ITIL from the bottom up!

Lawrence S. US Dept of State

Using his diverse IT background, [the instructor] had the unique ability to leverage experiences of the group to create practical scenarios that enforce ITIL training objectives. This approach provides real-world examples of how ITIL best practices are applied and reinforces the training material. Highly Recommended!

I recently took an ITIL Training course with Beyond20 and found their teaching method to be very helpful. As was guaranteed by Beyond20, I passed the certification exam at the end of the course. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable of ITSM and had relevant industry experience. I would highly recommend Beyond20.
