American Management Association Seminars

ITIL® Foundation
Seminar No: 72975-XNBB
18 PDU
Length: 3 days

Learn the process improvements, benefits, and challenges of ITIL..and get your ITIL Expert certification in the process!

In this exciting and dynamic seminar, you will learn how to manage your IT services so that they meet, and exceed business expectations. This course implements a “case study” approach—giving you practical, hands-on experience while you learn the core disciplines of ITIL best practices. After finishing this course, you’ll be well positioned to successfully complete the associated ITIL exam required for entry into the future ITIL intermediate-level training courses.

ITIL covers five core disciplines:

    Service Strategy
    Service Design
    Service Transition
    Service Operations
    Continual Service Improvement
These disciplines represent the service lifecycle—a process which bridges the gap between business and IT services. With an understanding of these core disciplines, you will be able to demonstrate the business value and ROI of IT to business…and solve specific operational needs in the process.

This seminar includes handouts, practice sessions, quizzes, exam strategies, and test-taking tips—all of which will serve as great reference points once the class is completed. The one-hour ITIL Foundation exam will be offered on the last day of class at 3:30 PM.
