This ITIL 4 Foundation certification class is the first course in the ITIL certification scheme and is a prerequisite for all other ITIL courses. For learners who are planning on certifying on advanced ITIL 4 concepts, or working in organizations committed to adopting and adapting the service value system, this is the class for you! For learners working in organizations seeking training on the minimum critical activities of core service management processes such as incident, problem, and change management, the ITSM Essentials course focuses on providing learners education that is immediately actionable for them. They can return to work the day after class and have tangible, practical ideas for incremental improvements.
Services are the main way that organizations create value for themselves and their customers. Almost all services today are IT-enabled, which means there is tremendous benefit for organizations in creating, expanding and improving their IT service management (ITSM) capability.
ITIL provides organizations with a comprehensive framework for ITSM. ITIL 4 brings ITIL up to date by re-shaping much of the established ITSM practices in the wider context of customer experience, value streams, and digital transformation, as well as embracing new ways of working, such as Lean, Agile, and DevOps.
This 16-hour certification course introduces learners to the management of modern IT-enabled services, provides them with an understanding of the common language and key concepts, and shows them how they can improve their work and the work of their organization with ITIL 4 guidance.

Take² is an add-on service exclusively offered for selected exams and becomes available only when the initial exam linked to it has a “fail” result. Take² is not transferable, non-refundable, and cannot be redeemed for cash or credit, even if it isn’t eventually used. Candidates must schedule and take the re-sit exam within 6 months from the date of their initial exam. Take² is exam-specific; it cannot be used for any other offering and is valid only for the exam originally purchased. Failing to show up for a Take² exam appointment or not rescheduling the appointment prior to their scheduled appointment forfeits candidates’ ability to use the Take² generated voucher. It can only be purchased up to 15 minutes before sitting an examination. Take² is not available for purchase after a failed exam.
