What is ITIL®?

ITIL® is an integrated set of best-practice processes for delivering IT services to customers. The primary focus is to maximize value to customers (the business) by aligning IT resources with business needs. At it’s core is the basic idea that value is provided in the form of business-aligned IT Services.

The ITIL® certification scheme provides a modular approach to the ITIL® framework, and is comprised of a series of qualifications focused on different aspects of ITIL® best practice to various degrees of depth and detail. The tiered structure of the qualification offers candidates flexibility relating to the different disciplines and areas of ITIL® and the ability to focus their studies on key areas of interest.

The Foundation exam is the entry level certification and offers you a general awareness of the key elements, concepts and terminology used in the ITIL® service lifecycle, including the links between lifecycle stages, the processes used and their contribution to service management practices.

tick Top Quartile Exam Results

People using Balance /SPOCE e-learning products consistently achieve higher scores at Foundation level when compared to alternative eLearning courses. This is not surprising when you bear in mind that Balance & SPOCE were one of the first ATO’s to be accrediated in the UK back in the 1990’s.

tick Course accredited, licensed and approved

This course has been reviewed and accredited by PeopleCert an approved AXELOS examination institute.

Many eLearning PRINCE2® Courses are not formally accredited or approved by the PeopleCert, which means the courses are invariably not fit-for-purpose in terms of providing the study content necessary to pass the exams. Only accredited providers are allowed to use the appropriate AXELOS logo shown above.

A common concern with eLearning is that you will be un-supported as a learner.  With our courses this is not so.  Not only will you be able to see questions asked by previous learners through subject forums, but you will be able to directly message support if you are stuck or don’t understand something.

Furthermore, our courses use multi-media and have been carefully designed to cater for different learning styles, preferences and abilities:

  • Visual Learners – our courses are visually engaging, with many diagrams and images to illustrate and highlight key points
  • Auditory Learners – our courses contain clear audio, delivered by subject specialists rather than actors, which we find helps ensure that emphasis is placed on the most important aspects
  • Kinaesthetic Learners – our courses have many test questions and inter-active exercises embedded within them to aid those who learn best through practising what they have learnt
  • Course Accessibility – if you have a hearing impairment, or need to turn the audio off a full transcripts are available within our courses

Some benefits of eLearning include:

  • Learning can occur at a time and place to suit you – around your work commitments and lifestyle
  • You can repeat the course units, exercises and tests as many times as you like, until you are confident
  • It is often cheaper than classroom courses, and there are no travel costs!
  • Associated exams can also be taken at home, on-line at a time to suit you using ProctorU service
