ITIL is used by organisations world-wide to establish and improve capabilities in service management. Service Management is a set of specialised organisational capabilities for providing value to customers in the form of services. The capabilities take the form of functions and processes for managing services over a lifecycle, with specializations in strategy, design, transition, operation, and continual improvement. The capabilities represent a service organisation’s capacity, competency, and confidence for action. The act of transforming resources into valuable services is at the core of service management. Without these capabilities, a service organisation is merely a bundle of resources that by itself has relatively low intrinsic value for customers.More information can be found at the OGC web-site: http://www.ogc.gov.uk Test your Skills - ITIL Foundation QuizDownload the FREE Focus Guide  - ITIL Qualifications Explained

Attend From Anywhere

Description:

Extended Classroom: an innovative approach to learning

       

Our ‘Attend from Anywhere’ courses allow you to access award-winning classroom training without leaving your home or office. We use GoToMeeting video conferencing software by Citrix. Before you book you should:

  • check to ensure you meet the GoToMeeting system requirements
  • run a test meeting to ensure the software is compatible with your firewall settings (if this link doesn’t work you should adjust your settings or contact your IT department about permitting the website)
  • make sure you have a compatible webcam if you are doing any ITIL or BCS Specialist exams, as visual ID checks will be required (click here to test if your hardware is compatible)

What will it be like?

 

One week before the course starts we will send out the equipment you need in the post (headset and manuals) and contact you to test everything is working.
  1. Just before the course begins you will be able to launch the software, dial-in to the classroom and familiarise yourself with the interface and how the virtual interactions work.
  2. The course will be split into multiple sessions, with short breaks in between so you can stay focussed and refreshed.
  3. Throughout the course the learning professional will use an electronic whiteboard, which will transmit all the notes directly to your screen.
  4. You can ask the learning professional a question at any time, either by simply speaking aloud through your microphone or by clicking the virtual ‘raise-a-hand’ button on the interface.
  5. Towards the end of the course there will be plenty of time for detailed Q&As with the learning professional, just as if you were physically in the classroom.
  6. Following the course you will be asked to complete a course evaluation form, which will allow you to give detailed feedback on your experience and help us to make future improvements.
  7. For four weeks after the course has finished you will have on-demand access to helpful videos on the subject matter, and we may send you useful emails reminding you of the ‘Key Learning Points’.
