To recognize the achievements of individuals who have progressed through the ITIL v3 certification scheme there is an ITIL Managing Professional Transition Module. The transition module will cover the core elements from the ITIL Managing Professional stream. It will have a mandatory training element and exam, enabling v3 candidates to transition their existing designations into the new ITIL 4 certification scheme. Completion of this module will provide a candidate with the ITIL Managing Professional (ITIL MP) designation.

ITIL 4 Certification Scheme

ITIL 4 has been designed to help organizations meet the increasing demand from the current complex digital environment. The new scheme has been designed to be backwards compatible with ITIL v3 and streamlined to encourage conversion beyond ITIL Foundation level. The ITIL 4 Certification Scheme comprises of the following modules:

 

ITIL Foundation

ITIL 4 Foundation will be released in Q1 2019 and is the entry level certification, offering end-learners a general awareness of the key elements, concepts and terminology used in ITIL 4.

ITIL Managing Professional (ITIL MP) Specialist Modules

ITIL MP targets IT practitioners working within technology and digital teams across businesses. The Managing Professional (MP) stream provides practical and technical knowledge about how to run successful IT projects, teams and workflows.

It integrates three specialist modules (Create, Deliver & Support, Drive Stakeholder Value, and High Velocity IT) and the ITIL Strategist Direct, Plan & Improve module. All modules are valuable independently but all 4 must be completed to obtain the ITIL Managing Professional designation. The ITIL Managing Professional modules mandates completion of ITIL 4 Foundation as a prerequisite.

ITIL Strategic Leader (ITIL SL) Modules

ITIL Strategic Leader recognizes the value of ITIL, not just for IT Operations, but for all digitally enabled services. Becoming an ITIL Strategic Leader (ITIL SL) demonstrates that the professional has a clear understanding of how IT influences and directs business strategy. ITIL Strategic Leader integrates the ITIL Strategist Direct, Plan & Improve and ITIL Leader Digital & IT Strategy module. Both modules are valuable independently but both must be completed to obtain the ITIL Strategic Leader designation. The ITIL Leader Digital & IT Strategy module mandates 3 years of managerial experience as a prerequisite along with completion of ITIL 4 Foundation.

ITIL Master

If a candidate completes all 5 modules, gaining both designations from the two streams, they will be eligible for assessment to become an ITIL Master. More details about ITIL Master will be announced at a later date.

Transition from ITIL V3 to ITIL 4 Module

To recognize the achievements of individuals who have progressed through the ITIL v3 certification scheme there is an ITIL Managing Professional Transition Module. The ITIL Managing Professional Transition Module is designed for ITIL v3 candidates who are ITIL Experts or who have achieved 17 credits from across the v3 scheme. The transition module will cover the core elements from the ITIL Managing Professional stream. It will have a mandatory training element and exam, enabling v3 candidates to transition their existing designations into the new ITIL 4 certification scheme. Completion of this module will provide a candidate with the ITIL Managing Professional (ITIL MP) designation.

After achieving the ITIL Managing Professional (ITIL MP) designation, if the candidate is interested in pursuing the ITIL Strategic Leader stream, they would only need to complete the ITIL Leader Digital & Strategy module to become eligible for ITIL Master.
