A three level structure for qualifications has been proposed as follows:
- Basic Level - equating to ITIL version 2 Foundation qualification;
- Management and Capability Level - replacing the ITIL v2 Practitioner and Manager qualifications
- Advanced Level
The levels are built around the Blooms Taxonomy of learning with the Basic Level assessing an individual's knowledge and comprehension. The Management Level assessing comprehension and application and the Advanced Level assessing application and analysis.
The Basic Level qualification will follow the same format as the existing Foundation exams - three day course, which includes a one hour examination of forty multiple choice questions. It is hoped that some of the Accredited Training Organisations (ATOs) will begin offering the Basic Level courses from the middle of June 2007.
The other qualification courses are still under development.
It has been recommended that bridging qualifications to facilitate someone with a ITIL version 2 qualification taking a short course to bring their knowledge in line with the improvements in ITIL Version 3.
