The intent of the Managing across the Lifecycle (MALC) qualification is to give delegates the skills to support an organisation’s service delivery by bridging the service lifecycle stages. The qualification demonstrates that delegates have learned the value of one combined service management practice as opposed to separate subject areas. ITIL processes and practices, as learnt from the lifecycle and capability streams of the intermediate certificates, are put into a context of delivering this value.
The ITIL® Qualification in Managing across the Lifecycle Certificate is the final module in the Service Lifecycle and/or Service Capability modules that lead to the ITIL® Expert in Service Management.
Individuals who require a business and management level understanding of the ITIL service lifecycle and how it may be implemented to enhance the quality of IT service provision within an organization
Individuals seeking the ITIL Expert in IT Service Management certificate, for which this qualification is the final mandatory module
Individuals seeking progress towards the ITIL Master in IT Service Management, for which the ITIL Expert in IT Service Management certificate is a prerequisite
Please be aware, this course also provides 35 Hours of Contact Education/Professional Development Units towards PMI PMP certification/re-certification
Delegates wishing to be trained and examined for this qualification must already have two (2) credits from the ITIL v3, 2011 or v4 Foundation certificate (or have the ITIL v2/v3 Foundation bridge) and must, as a minimum, have obtained a further 15 credits to a total of at least 17 credits. 15 credits can be obtained from ITIL Intermediate qualifications.
