Course Description

The 3-day Achieving ISO/IEC 20000 Certification training program is an intensive, case-study-oriented workshop that is designed for those involved in the ISO/IEC 20000 implementation process and for those who would like to understand what the implementation encompasses in a better manner. The workshop uses practical examples and real-life case studies to guide participants through the implementation route and prepare for the audit.
ISO/IEC 20000 is the international standard for IT service management (ITSM). It defines the requirements for and provides details of the IT service management system (SMS) needed to deliver managed services of an acceptable quality, together with guidance on how to demonstrate conformity with the standard.

This course is aimed at those wishing to demonstrate a Foundation-level knowledge concerning ISO/IEC 20000 and its use in a typical IT service provider organization. Candidates do not require any formal knowledge of ITSM. The course is delivered in a way that includes sufficient generic ITSM content to allow ISO/IEC 20000 to be understood in the context of how the standard operates in a typical IT service provider organization.   The APMG certification exam, which is a multiple-choice exam, can be conducted at the end of the course.
