What Clients Say...

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.

Denis D. Cisco Systems

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!

Mark W. Wells Fargo Bank

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.
