ITIL 4 Master Certification
The ITIL® Master certification validates your ability to apply the principles, methods and techniques from ITIL in the workplace.
To achieve the ITIL Master certification, you must be able to explain and justify how you have personally selected and applied a range of knowledge, principles, methods and techniques from the ITIL Framework and supporting management techniques, to achieve desired business outcomes in one or more practical assignments.
Every ITIL Master candidate will select a different range of experiences that are personal to them, so there is no fixed syllabus for this qualification. There is also no prescribed training course since the theory being tested will vary depending on the nature of the situation each candidate will choose.
To be eligible for the ITIL Master certification, you must:
- Have achieved the ITIL Expert certificate; and
- Have worked in IT service management for at least five years in leadership, managerial, or higher management advisory levels.
In order to achieve your ITIL Master certificate, you must ensure you have extensive practical hands-on experience with ITIL and can demonstrate active involvement in implementation of the practices.
