ITpreneurs, a leading global provider of training solutions in the area of IT Service Management and IT governance best practices, announces today the availability of the first true blended ITIL training solution that takes IT professionals to ITIL Expert Level in one go - the ITpreneurs ITIL Expert Program.

Online PR News – 28-January-2010 – – The Expert Program combines all ITIL v3 Capability or Lifecycle intermediate courses plus Managing Across the Lifecycle in one tightly integrated program. Through a mix of self-paced study and instructor-led interactive teaching, students can leverage time to their advantage while working toward the highest level of internationally recognized certification available in the ITIL domain: ITIL Expert.

This program opens doors for IT professionals who are interested in advancing their careers and for IT organizations that are looking to develop their key personnel and practitioners into well-rounded IT professionals.

“The Expert Program significantly lowers the threshold for IT professionals who want to accelerate their careers, by bringing the highly desired Expert Level within their reach. This is the first time an ITIL training provider offers a tightly integrated solution that brings students to ITIL Expert Level in half the time it would normally take them,” says Sukhbir Jasuja, ITpreneurs CEO.

The Expert Program is designed on the following four principles:

• Innovation in design: e-learning is used for teaching the knowledge aspects of the ITIL training content; classroom sessions focus on applying, analyzing and synthesizing of information

• Intense group experience: there are three intensive classroom sessions that are completed with the same group of students providing the foundation for experience sharing and peer learning

• Accelerated path to certification: reduction of classroom time and travel by more than 50% by providing 50 hours of e-learning that students complete in a flexible manner

• Access to Expert Community: all alumni to the program are granted access into a community of like-minded professionals, where they can continue to learn long after completion of the program

The Expert Program comprises two tracks: Lifecycle and Capability. The Lifecycle Track covers the Service Design (SD), Service Strategy (SS), Service Transition (ST), Service Operation (SO) and Continuous Service Improvement (CSI) courses plus Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC). Students spend 10-days in the classroom (practical application) and complete 50-hours of e-learning (knowledge) at their own time and pace.

The Capability Track covers Planning, Protection and Optimization (PPO), Service Offerings and Agreements (SOA), Operational Support & Analysis (OSA), and Release, Control and Validation (RCV) courses as well as Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC).
