The ITIL® Qualification Scheme
The ITIL® qualification scheme, shown below, is supported by a training credit system. Candidates may elect to take as many or few modules as they wish to meet their individual or organizational needs but must accumulate the required number of credits if they wish to gain the ITIL® Expert Certification. Each certificate has been assigned a numerical credit value, which can be accumulated to achieve the required minimum twenty-two (22) in order for a candidate to be awarded the status of ITIL® Expert. Credits are also awarded for existing ITIL® certifications. Once ITIL® Expert™ status is achieved, a candidate can pursue the ITIL® Master level certification.
