What is ITIL® 4?
ITIL® (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) is the most widespread and globally used framework and best practice for IT Service Management. It has undergone several changes over time since the first version of the late '80s to the version of the early 2000s, known as ITIL v2. Later ITIL v3 was the term frequently used for the 2007 update, which should be more correctly referred to as ITIL 2007. The later edition of ITIL was published in 2011 and, therefore, it is sometimes referred to as ITIL 2011. Since 2019, a new version of ITIL is available: ITIL® 4. ITIL 4 courses are provided by iLEARN online (self-paced), in classroom or remotely.
ITIL (ITIL 4 Edition framework) has been designed to help organizations meet the increasing demand from the current complex digital environment. The new qualification scheme has been designed to be backwards compatible with ITIL v3 and streamlined to encourage conversion beyond ITIL Foundation level. ITIL Practitioner level, Intermediate level (ITIL® v3 Service Lifecycle and ITIL® v3 Service Capability) and ITIL® v3 Managing Across Lifecycle level will be replaced by new and more simplified modules.
What is ITIL® 4 useful for?

For each module an exam is available to prove the achieved competences and get certified.

There are four levels of ITIL certifications and qualifications:
ITIL Foundation (often referred to as ITIL 4 Foundation edition) is the entry level certification, offering end-learners a general awareness and knowledge of the key elements, concepts and terminology used in ITIL.
ITIL Foundation course and certification is aimed at entry level IT professionals, those who need a basic understanding of ITIL, or would like to progress to higher levels within the ITIL 4 certification scheme.
The purpose of this certification is to introduce candidates to modern IT-enabled service management.
ITIL Foundation certification can be achieved by passing the ITIL Foundation exam after the completion of the corresponding ITIL course (Foundation level).
The ITIL® 4 Extension Modules are intended to enable organizations to maximize value from through the adoption of the globally recognized ITIL 4 framework as part of the ITIL 4 certification scheme. These certifications extend the main ITIL 4 framework and provide organizations with the guidance to address and harness the challenges and opportunities presented by emerging technologies and themes that impact their operations.
There are currently two modules that comprise of the ITIL 4 Extension Modules: ITIL® 4 Specialist: Sustainability in Digital & IT and ITIL® 4 Specialist: Acquiring & Managing Cloud Services

ITIL Managing Professional (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.
ITIL Managing Professional path integrates three specialist modules (ITIL 4 Specialist: Create, Deliver & Support, ITIL 4 Specialist: Drive Stakeholder Value and ITIL 4 Specialist: High Velocity IT) and the module ITIL Strategist Direct, Plan & Improve. All modules are valuable independently but all 4 exams must be completed to obtain the ITIL Managing Professional designation.
The ITIL Managing Professional modules mandates completion of ITIL 4 Foundation as a prerequisite.
The ITIL 4 Managing Professional certifications can be achieved by passing the corresponding exam after the completion of the related ITIL course.
After achieving the ITIL Managing Professional designation, if candidates are interested in pursuing the ITIL Strategic Leader stream, they would only need to complete the ITIL course "ITIL Leader: Digital & IT Strategy" and to pass the corresponding exam.
ITIL Strategic Leader stream 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 4 Strategic Leader certifications can be achieved by passing the corresponding exam after the completion of the related ITIL course.
The ITIL Leader Digital & IT Strategy module mandates 3 years of managerial experience as a prerequisite along with completion of ITIL 4 Foundation.
All candidates must start with ITIL Foundation for both ITIL Managing Professional and ITIL Strategic Leader certifications schemes to gain a basic understanding of the core concepts and principles of ITIL 4.
Candidates can then work towards becoming either an ITIL Managing Professional (ITIL MP) or an ITIL Strategic Leader (ITIL SL) by completing the relevant courses and exam.
If candidates complete all 5 ITIL v4 courses and exams, 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 later.
Furthermore, there is an additional module for the ones who have progressed through the old ITIL v3 certification scheme.
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. Candidates who will complete successfully the course and the exam of this module will get the ITIL Managing Professional (ITIL MP) certification.
The transition module training will cover the core elements from the ITIL Managing Professional stream. It will have a mandatory ITIL training and exam that will enable the candidates to transition from their existing certification to the new ITIL 4 certification scheme.
