The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) skillset is a global standard. Many Fortune 500 companies, federal, state and local government agencies, K-12 public education and higher education institutions, and many other businesses are implementing this best practice framework. This program is designed for professionals who have been responsible for direct report employees (e.g. executives, managers, team leaders and supervisors) and as an entrance level program that will allow career changers an opportunity to acquire ITIL certifications and apply them to future roles. These skillsets at all levels both map to specific job roles and can be generalized across industries. These skillsets are “non-perishable”, which makes it an excellent investment of taxpayer money, as there are jobs that still go unfilled due to lack of ITIL certified candidates. Globally there are at present approximately 250,000 ITIL Intermediate and about 1,000,000 ITIL Foundation certified professionals. The State of Texas recognizes the need for the ITIL skillset. In 2012, the State Legislature passed HB1516, mandating that all state agencies apply ITIL to both IT and business organizations.
This program includes the four levels of ITIL qualification and eight certifications:
ITIL Foundation (1 Exam)
ITIL Intermediate Service Lifecycle (5 Exams)
ITIL Expert (1 Exam)
Students are provided with the opportunity to take and pass each of these six certification exams on the final day of each class. Consistent and experience-based teaching of ITIL service delivery principles is designed to both validate current professional skills and develop skills in those changing their career track toward a future job role in Information Technology (IT) or business operations.
