“Your crew in the Ft. Lauderdale office were all warm, friendly, and professional. It helped to make the course experience very pleasant.

And I am so very glad I passed and am now an ITIL Expert.” ~ Nicki C., Analysis, Program Development, US Defense Contractor

Please pass along my gratitude to him for a job very well done.” ~ Lanny K., Sr. Business Consultant, Leading Integration Provider

"I would like to tell you how pleased I was with the ITIL training. I felt that all the people involved in the process, from the registration process, through the actual training, to the attached email that you sent me, "every one cared"... perhaps this is the single most critical attribute to your office team. I have already recommended this course at your location to one ex employee of mine, and will continue to do so going forward.  Again, thank you all for caring for the students as your guests during the training sessions." ~ Wilfried J., CIO, Financial Organization

"As we are wrapping up our SOA class this week and have collected comments from previous classes here I want to simply say, Thank You. Our command has done nothing but praise your instructor for his ability to connect to the learner and provide a quality ITIL knowledge foundation within our organization." ~ Andrew W., Director, Program Management Office, US Military

“Joyce, this was an awesome course, and you were very knowledgeable in this area. I weighted ITSM Academy vs other training providers and I'm so happy I picked ITSM Academy. I feel very prepared for this test, will spend this afternoon and tomorrow studying and will be taking the exam at 7:30pm tomorrow night. :) Great job!!" ~ Dana B., Customer Support Director, Network and Communication Services

“If anyone is looking for a good ITIL certification school, I recommend ITSM Academy. I couldn’t have done it without their great teachers!" ~ Shannon C., IT Change Control, Market-leading Cloud, Networking and Virtualization Technology Company

“I must say that I really enjoy having ITSM Academy as my training provider. My most recent course had a great mix of individuals from the industry with common interests and experiences. Drew’s teaching style really helped me to understand the objectives rather than just know or memorize the material. We learned and had fun at the same time! Kudos to everyone as always for making learning a great experience!” ~ Alphonso W., IT Service Management, Global Technology Leader

"I received the test results this morning and was ecstatic and relieved! Thanks so much for the great hospitality and learning environment. I will certainly keep ITSM Academy in mind when I get an opportunity (funding) to take another course." ~ Ricky P., US Military

“I would just like to commend the ITSM Academy team that developed your Virtual course offerings. I just took the ITIL CSI course virtually with Mike. Given I consider myself a "traditional class-room learner" and that I'd never taken a virtual course before, I was a bit anxious. I was immediately comforted when Michael was presented as the instructor, as he'd been my instructor for my CPDE certification and I knew he was knowledgeable and engaging, which makes him a quality instructor in my opinion. AND he allows for a break every hour, which when you first hear about, you might think that it is a lot and unnecessary, but when you are in class, you appreciate very much as it helps you focus and recharge. If that is a standard practice for all instructors, it is a great one.  I REALLY like the 5 hour per day format, vs 3 full days. For me the format allowed for a good pace and I never got overloaded with new material on any one day. The use of the tools (pointers, highlighters, supplemental materials section) along with the on-line quizzes and test reviews made the course more interactive than I could have imagined. I would ABSOLUTELY take another virtual ITSM Academy course, and have already shared with others how great an experience it was and recommended they considerate for their future course needs. Thanks so much for all your hard work in making this an enjoyable and successful vehicle for education.” ~ Theresa P., IT Service Management Consulting

“I thought the CPDE class was great! I've already used a lot of what I learned. I would highly recommend it to anybody that does any kind of process work." ~ Ian G., Business Consultant and Certified Process Design Engineer

"The quality of the instruction and interaction in my virtual Service Strategy class was fantastic. The virtual environment ended up being so convenient, such a cost and time savings, that even if this class had been offered next door to me, I would have elected virtual. I will definitely recommend ITSM Academy to others." ~ Anonymous

“Thank you so much for sharing your materials and for doing such an excellent job of teaching us! You are a great teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed the class. One of the marks of a great teacher is the ability to draw from knowledge and experience gained from outside the syllabus, and you do that exceptionally well.” ~ Katherine S., Manager of Process Improvement & Infrastructure Services, Certified ITIL Expert (AND CPDE!), large US Hospital System

“I look forward to participating in the Alumni program and reconnecting with the itSMF local LIG. The CPDE course, my classmates, instructors and staff are all awesome and highly motivating!” ~ Al W., CPDE, Service Delivery and Regional Operations, Global Enterprise Software Organization

"I received my certification today for PPO. Thanks for running such a high-level, high-performance organization! I had a great time and the classmates and trainer were excellent. I'll see y'all next year for another Expert track course." ~ John B., Senior Change Analyst

"I want to send you a sincere THANK YOU for the Managers Bridge Course that you held last week. You did a fabulous job! I couldn't have asked for a better or more real world experienced instructor for the course. I don't think I could have been better prepared for the exam that followed. After finishing the exam, I knew that I was taught the subject matter as well as it could have been presented to me." ~ Cecil H., Principal Consultant

"Going into the virtual class, I was really worried about distractions. Having done eLearning in the past, I know I am the type of person who does best in a physical classroom, with the trainer right in front of me. To my surprise, it felt as if the trainer WAS right in front of me. She did an awesome job of keeping us all engaged, and free from distractions. I never thought I would say this, but I can’t wait to take another class this way. Thank you ITSM Academy for another fantastic experience." ~ Crystal L., Program Manager, Service Management

“I highly recommend the CPDE course. Over time we had pieced together a process design approach through research, as well as trial and error. The tools, techniques and templates from the CPDE course allowed my team to take our approach and documentation to a whole new level. The course simplified and streamlined what had been perceived as a complicated process, saving us time and money in our redesign efforts. Stakeholders are better engaged and much more satisfied with the experience and results. I hold a good majority of the advanced ITIL certifications and having my CPDE knowledge before taking those classes would have helped me more quickly and effectively apply what I learned to our situation.” ~ Dan O., ITSM Program Director, State Government

"I wanted to let you know that I became an ITIL Expert. I took some virtual classes to finish my last 2 trainings. I enjoyed tremendously taking classes with the ITSM Academy and have and will recommend it. I will keep in touch and participate in your webinars. Thanks to your group for hooking me on this framework!" ~ Martine P., Program Manager, Market and Technology Leader in Business Management Software

“I got my results from the ITIL Foundation exam on Tuesday and I passed with an 85%. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for all of the help and support you provided to me in preparing for this exam. I think I can honestly say that I would not have been able to successfully pass this exam on my first attempt without your invaluable assistance. I would like to voice my appreciation to the entire team at the ITSM Academy for their support in this effort.” ~ Ned. B., Senior Quality Analyst, Government Prime Contractor

“My experience with the online classes was wonderful. Thank you for offering classes in the virtual format. The expert certification would not be feasible for me if I had to travel.” ~ Thane T., Service Owner, US Dept of Energy R&D Organization

"Earning a CPDE really brought multiple disciplines together into a cohesive package – from ‘soup to nuts’ – for review and retooling of existing processes to using specific tools to show where bottlenecks or potential enhancements can be found. This pulls many things together to enhance the knowledge of process engineer so that they can bring better value to their company." ~ Bryan D., Process Engineer

“Oh my gosh...what an amazing teacher!!!!!! I really loved this Foundation class! When I figure out my path, I'll definitely take my classes through your organization. It was a pleasure! Well done.” ~ Arianne G.

“The Service Manager Bridge course was awesome! The instructor was excellent! Awesome class AND an exam pass, I couldn’t ask for anything more…except maybe another round of those fresh, crunchy Oreo cookies you guys provided…or maybe another lip-smacking Reuben which I talked about for days! Classmates, thanks for making it a most enjoyable week.” ~ Dolores T., Organization Providing Professional Information Technology and Logistics Support Services, to Federal and Commercial Markets

"I chose ITSM Academy because I wanted a live classroom instructor (not online) and because you offer the full complement of ITIL capabilities and lifecycle courses. Being a PMI REP was a great bonus too - taking this class gave me the PDU's I needed to renew my current PMP cycle.  Our instructor did a great job of using personal insight and experience to explain and enhance the material. At the same time, he never strayed far from the material and kept the class focused and on topic.  The materials were very good - clear and concise, and the content was professionally developed and presented. I was very pleased with how well the lecture matched the materials (not just the slides, but the homework and sample exams too), and how it all matched the actual exam. From a learning perspective, and an exam preparation perspective, I think the course did a great job and I will definitely be back when I need additional ITIL coursework." ~ Paul K., Project Manager

"Thank you, thank you, thank for your assistance... The class materials and the lifecycle management were so interesting that I stayed engaged for the content.... I'm sure the MALC training will help me in my endeavors to improve IT at my organization, and I thank you and ITSM Academy for that direction..." ~ Phillip S., Chief of Planning, Coordination and Asset Management, Division of the US Federal Government

“Just a short note to express my appreciation for your guidance and instruction during the SOA class. My passing the exam with an 85 is something noteworthy as one of your great achievements......I learned much more than I thought. Great job and I do hope our paths cross again in the future.” ~ David M., US IT Program Manager, Global Energy & Petrochemicals Companies

“We would like to thank everyone at ITSM Academy and especially our trainer for supporting us in our pursuit of excellence in IT Service Management. Everyone I've spoken with has expressed how much they enjoyed the class and gained a better understanding of the ITIL processes. Our Instructor gave us all the information we needed and in a way that was easily understood.  We very much want to express our gratitude and appreciation for all the excellent training provided by some of the best instructors in the business. We look forward to expanding our knowledge base of ITSM through future classes locally and at your location.” ~ Jim S., Service Desk, Federal Government

“We highly recommend ITSM Academy - FAR Superior to the competition.” ~ Robert D., Program Manager, Information Technology Services

"Thanks, again for a great CPDE class. I think I can speak for all of us in saying that it was a great class with the right information we needed at this point in our "process" (no pun intended). Thanks for allowing us to take the time to dig into specifics in class. I think that interaction made the class that much more effective for us." ~ William B., Problem Management Process Owner, Federal Government

"This was my second experience with virtual class. The previous one was with another company, and let me tell you that it was a complete disaster... With ITSM Academy, it was so easy and great. On the first day, I was worried about the VoIP quality, so I went to the office to be sure to have good bandwidth and Internet access. The following days I took the class from home, and was completely satisfied in terms of voice quality and also the power point presentation...no technical problems at all.  The instructors were completely accurate and assertive on class management (times, knowledge about the topic, interaction with students, etc).  I also have to mention how easy it was to take the exam. Even though I had a connection problem during the exam, I reconnected and all my answers were there so I did not have to start the exam all over again. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience for me, and I will definitively recommend this type of course to anybody, but more precisely, I will recommend to my CIO ITIL Foundation training for all our IT department, as part of the basic knowledge everybody in our department must have. Thanks Again!" ~ Melvin G., Service Management Leader for an International Food Manufacturer

“ITSM Academy has hit another home run with this well-designed and thoughtful SOA course. It is designed to help organizations get the most from their adoption of ITIL best practices.” ~ Rodger B., Process Improvement Manager, Government Prime Contractor

"Your virtual classroom proved to be an effective way to complete my ITIL Foundation bridge course, without having to travel. It gave me the opportunity to have class in the morning, catch up with work in the afternoon and then study in the evening." ~ Karen F., IT Manager, Global Utility Management Organization

"Just to throw in my two cents worth, that was an absolutely great class. I really enjoyed class and found it to be extremely useful. I was guardedly optimistic last Friday afternoon, and excited to hear that the whole class passed - 100% - wow! With the personality dynamics, the experiences and the information exchange from the class, tied in with a strong curriculum and excellent delivery, what other results would we have expected?" ~ Wes B., Project Manager, US Defense Contactor

“Thanks to all of you for sharing your knowledge and experience in my recent ITIL SOA class. This was clearly one of the most important and valuable classes for me professionally." ~ Kristen C., I/S Strategic Consultant, Large Insurance Company

"We are finally getting further governance of the ITIL framework in place! Thanks for the ideas we went over in class. I presented a paper to my boss and his boss concerning the RCV duties, responsibilities and dependencies. They are really wanting to take things to the next level and we are better defining our process/policies/procedures as we speak. I am more excited about our direction than I have been in many months. Thanks for your great insight. I really appreciate the effort you put into teaching. I really enjoyed finally meeting Pat and I recently got to see Krista Lewis at a local LIG in Tallahassee. You guys are awesome." ~ Sandy S., Change Manager, State Government

“I just want to let you know that Joy was an excellent instructor and was very knowledgeable in her delivery of the content of the course. I really enjoyed the interaction and it was a pleasure to have taken the class under her tutelage!” ~ Garland B., Large Enterprise Software Company

“Just got my results. I passed! With good scores to boot! I wanted to thank Drew for his class and his strategic approach to the material, which is what helped me pass the exam. He made material that is rather dry, very interesting and was an engaging teacher. Once again, thank you.” ~ Aruna C., Project Manager

I wanted to let you know what a great job Joy did on the instruction of the Foundation course. The instruction was informative and not only provided a strong baseline to pass the exam, but included “real world” scenarios that allow you to leverage the content back to our corporate roles. I also purchased ITIL books from your site and look forward to taking more courses from your firm in the future. I will be recommending your firm to our company and clients. Thanks again.” ~ Bryan J, PMP, Director Federal Government Consulting Firm

“Thank you for a good week of training. I left feeling confident of learning the processes and pretty confident of passing the exam (which I did, though I missed a couple more questions than I had hoped). I've forwarded my feedback to my managers to encourage anyone that will be involved with the CMDB and change management to be sure and take this course, and to use ITSM Academy.” ~ Paula L., Sr. Systems Analyst, Leading Diversified Industrial Manufacturer

“Drew, thanks for all your hard work and knowledge for instilling the ITIL core concepts! Congratulations team! I'm very thankful to share in the team’s success! You guys are a great bunch, all the best to each of you. The class and your staff are fantastic! I will proudly recommend your training company to other professionals.” ~ Gloria S., PMP, President of IT Consulting Organization

“Congratulations to all my classmates, and sincere thanks to Drew for making it an enjoyable and rewarding training experience. I can specifically attribute the one-on-one attention he paid to questions I had during the review period leading up to the exam on the last day to my confidence about my answers to more than a couple of the many seemingly ambiguous test questions that I otherwise may have answered incorrectly. To be quite honest I did not think I did that well on the exam and was pleasantly surprised when I saw my score!” ~ Lenny S., IT Professional

"The Certified Process Design Engineer (CPDE) class provides an opportunity to understand the basics of process improvement from an IT service management perspective, without bias towards a particular framework or proprietary methodology. Unlike many business process oriented approaches, CPDE provides an IT process lane that is tailored to the needs of the IT community. It compliments BPM initiatives and can help IT process design and improvement teams get on the Right Road to ITSM excellence." ~ John W., Principal, IT Service Delivery Organization

“I just wanted to take a moment to say that I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone in Dallas, It was one of the best training classes that I ever had. Not only was the training exceptionally done (Kudos to ITSM Academy - who are Great hosts and instructors), and for those of you attending the class, you all were a great group to work and study with.” ~ Dan O., Independent Consultant

“Thank you very much for how well you prepared us, not only for the certification exam, but the unique challenges ITIL implementation presents. I’ve presented to my boss (the Director of Support Services) only a few of the ideas we discussed in class, and he’s excited by the direction I want to take the Problem Management program and has given me his blessing to start making changes and moving forward with the plans. Your enthusiasm for the ITIL processes and how they can and will improve an organization will now have a direct impact on the future of patient care at our healthcare organization.” ~ Jason H., Problem/Knowledge Manager, Healthcare Provider

"I was both delighted and relieved to discover that our instructor has a lot of practical experience in service management. Besides being an excellent instructor, Joy was able to use her background to keep the class interesting with plenty of practical context and references. While I went in to this course with a pretty solid grounding on general ITIL structure and concepts, this 3-day tour does a good job of thoroughly exploring conceptual nooks and crannies of ITIL. For me, it did a lot to separate the facts from any preconceptions or suppositions that only casual exposure inevitably creates.” ~ Terry D., Chief Process Architect, Leading Portfolio Management Solutions Organization

"The ITSM Academy has a complete focus on training AND passing the exams. The quality of trainers, curriculum and classroom experience is first rate.

The training materials I received were what I needed to prepare for and pass the ITIL Service Manager exam.

Real life examples were used to reinforce the concepts that they trained and the experiences shared from the rest of the class really make attending in person worthwhile. Thank you ITSM Academy for your great training provided!" ~ Anita M., Trainer, Large Electronic Financial Solutions, Services and Products Organization

At the end of the second week, I felt like we received exceptional value for the cost and our time. I would compare the course to an intense, graduate study program - and rightly so given the difficultly level of the exams. Your professors were consummate professionals. Their real world experience, insight, and deep belief in the benefits IT Service Management can bring to corporations made the course exceed my expectations.

"I wanted to compliment you on a valuable and productive training session you gave following the 2005 itSMF USA Forum in Chicago. The practical inclusion of the ITSM templates and documents on the USB mini-drives you gave us was a very nice and extremely useful touch. The interactions between fellow students that you both incited so well was invaluable - real-time feedback from fellow Fortune 500 companies on their experiences, pitfalls and successes was the best form of networking I was involved in all week." ~ Andrew S., Director, Internet Applications Service Provision, Global Provider of Independent Credit Ratings (Fortune 500 Company)

“Bill and I want to thank you (of course Lisa for doing FANTASTIC!!!) for doing a great job. We both passed the Foundation Exam and are looking for recommendations to take additional classes via ITSM Academy.” ~ Doug S., President, IT Consulting and System Integration Company

I look forward to pursuing Practitioner and Service Manager certificates from ITSM Academy in the future.” ~ Alan Y., PMP, CISSP

After speaking with colleagues who have taken the Foundations class in the past with other companies, the program offered by ITSM Academy truly shines above the rest.

Thanks again!” ~ Marc H., Global Management Software Company (Fortune 500 Company)

“Your subject knowledge was superb, but as important was your ability to relate the materials to a real story. Your approach made it so much easier to connect with the information being presented.

Johnson, Global Provider of Products, Technologies, Solutions and Services (Fortune 500 Company)
