ITIL, Internet Technology Instruction Library, is a standard established for the purpose of giving IT professionals some basic building block style education in both terminology and execution for information management purposes. Making sure that everyone is speaking the same language and attaching the same meaning to terms of art is an important part of what ITIL is all about.
Anyone who is interested in carving out a career in IT is encouraged to obtain certification starting with the basic ITIL Foundation Certification. This serves as a necessary prerequisite to furthering their education with the more complex blocks constructed upon the basic ITIL principles.
This process is relatively painless and inexpensive. It requires a sum total of 16 hours of in-person learning, 24 hours of online learning and a minimum score of 65% on the final examination at the completion of the coursework.
