Finally I got my ITIL V3 expert accreditation after 2.5 years of study, practice and training.
The journey started on December 2009 when I sat for the foundation exam. Since then, I have delivered ITIL foundation training , studying, practicing and passing the intermediate exams.
Why it took me all that time? because I did not to pass exams only!
My strategy was to read the book to understand the concepts, approaches and practices, then to apply what I’ve learned in practice for four to six month before I sit for the exam. My strategy was to acquire the experience, then to pass the exams and get certified.
I am very happy that everything went as plan and I can proudly, and with full confidence say that I am ITIL V3 expert, both the knowledge and experience.
