Released in February of 2019, the course is an introduction to ITIL 4 that will enable you to look at IT service management through a BRAND NEW end-to-end operating model for the creation, delivery and continual improvement of tech-enabled products and services.

While ITIL 4 retains many of the core elements of ITIL v3, and much of the existing guidance will be recognizable in parts of ITIL 4, there are no direct like-for-like modules between the two certification schemes. It’s an update or enhancement of ITIL v3 – not a replacement.

If you’re ITIL v3 certified, we recommend that you take ITIL 4 Foundation in order to be able to transition to the new scheme. There’s a lot of new material that will prepare you to take on emerging challenges and trends in the industry.

You also have the option of obtaining 17 credits from the ITIL v3 scheme, which would make you eligible to take the ITIL Managing Professional transition module to migrate to ITIL 4 scheme.

ITIL v3 is as relevant as ever and remains in demand around the globe. It continues to support organizations and individuals to gain optimal value from IT and digital services. ITIL 4 retains many of the core elements of the good IT service management that continues to give value to millions of people and businesses around the world.

All certifications for ITIL remain valid and will continue to be recognized as valuable certifications globally. All credits gained can help you continue your ITIL journey in the new certification scheme.

Since it’s so much different, there isn’t a transition module at the Foundation level. However, if you’re ITIL Expert certified, you will have the option to bridge to the new ITIL 4 Managing Professional certification in late 2019 (more details on that to come).

You don’t have to wait! A combination of ITIL 4 Foundation and 15 ITIL v3 Intermediate credits will make you eligible to sit for the ITIL 4 Managing Professional (MP) Transition course. Pass that exam and you’ll be an ITIL Expert!

Two days. You’ll take the exam at the end of the second day.

If you’re PMP certified, you’ll receive 16 PDUs for completing the class.

All course materials – a course workbook, exercises, case study, practice questions, and the certification exam – are included.

The exam is 40 multiple choice questions. It’s a closed-book, and a passing score is 26/40, or 65%. You have one hour to finish.

We guarantee that all of our students will pass the exam – over 98% of our students pass on the first attempt. However, should you need to retake the exam, we will assist you in preparation and set up the retake at no additional cost. You can always attend the course again at no cost, although in most cases this isn’t necessary.

Why Beyond20

How We Teach

People learn differently, so we use a variety of methods to teach concepts throughout the course. In addition to exam preparation and practice quizzes, you'll engage in round-table discussions, group exercises, and games designed to give practical context to the concepts. We take this approach not only because it's more interesting and fun than simply memorizing vocabulary, but because it works.

All of our trainers are full-time Beyond20 staff

No temporary workers or subcontractors here. Our trainers are working consultants who implement best practice processes and tools when they're not in the classroom. You might say we practice what we preach. It's a great system, when you think about it - we're better consultants because we know these concepts inside and out, and we're better trainers because we get to put the theory into practice in the real world.

We don't just teach to the exam (though we certainly do that), we also give you practical and personalized tools you can take back to work.

We're a Registered Education Provider with PMI, so if you're PMP Certified, the course will earn you PDUs!

Industry-Leading Course Materials

All of our courseware is reviewed multiple times a year to ensure it's up to date, in line with best practice standards, and effective! We incorporate feedback from students to constantly improve our course books, in-class activities, and (sorry) homework. The goal is to provide you with the tools to not only get you through class and pass the exam, but also to have a reliable reference when you get back to the office.

All of our instructors are experienced practitioners with real world ITIL implementation expertise. (Real experience, too. Like, former-CIO-level experience.)

We're a US-based organization with offices in DC, Phoenix, and San Diego.
