  • ITIL Specialist: Drive Stakeholder Value
  • ITIL Specialist: High Velocity IT
  • ITIL Strategist: Direct, Plan & Improve

ITIL SL stream

  • ITIL Strategist: Direct, Plan & Improve

Transitioning from ITIL v3 to ITIL 4 certification

You have two options, depending on how far along you are with your ITIL v3 study:

  • If you are already ITIL v3 Foundation certified, you should take ITIL 4 Foundation to be able to transition to the new certification scheme.
  • If you are collecting ITIL v3 Practitioner or Intermediate (Service Lifecycle or Service Capability) credits, you should keep going until you get 17. You can then take the MP transition module.
