ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) is a widely accepted approach to IT service management which helps businesses ensure their IT services are aligned with their needs and support their core processes. It provides guidance on how to use IT as a tool to facilitate business change and growth.

All our classroom ITIL courses include exams as part of the course.

We accept all major credit cards including MasterCard, VISA and American Express. We also accept payment by cheque or wire transfer.

Please arrive at the venue for 08:45am.

Training hours are approximately 9am – 5pm.

You can sign up for the course up until the day before class begins. However, we have limited seating capacity and many of our courses fill up well in advance. We therefore advise students to register at least a few weeks before the course begins.


ITIL offers a hierarchy of certifications, leading to a Diploma in Service Management. This is a credit based system, with earlier certifications within the program being assigned credit values. A total value of 22 credit points is required to achieve the final diploma.

The first step is the ITIL Foundation Certification. This entry level qualification is mandatory to progress any further. Thereafter, there is a choice of 9 different programs within a second level. The third and final level is the 'Managing Across the Lifecycle'.

The official ITIL books are published and shipped by TSO. The five ITIL volumes are available either individually or as a discounted bundle, with PDF downloads also available. Click below to see prices and purchase.
