This course is targeted at ITSM leaders, and practitioners who already hold the ITIL v3 Expert qualification (or have 17 points under the ITIL v3 scheme) and gives them a direct path to transition to the new ITIL 4 Managing Professional (MP) designation. The course is designed to give a deep understanding of the key concepts of the ITIL 4 framework to enable successful management of modern IT-enabled services. It is also designed to prepare delegates for the ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition module examination which leads to the award of the ITIL 4 Managing Professional status.
Delegates must already have either a ITIL v3 Expert certificate obtained by passing the MALC exam or ITIL v2-v3 Bridging exam, or have achieved a minimum of 17 credits in the ITIL v3 qualification scheme.
An ITILv2 Managers certification plus CSI or Strategy making you eligible to take the MALC exam is not sufficient – the credits need to have been gained through the v3 qualification route.
