ITIL® Service Operation Training Course Overview

This 3 day ITIL® Service Operation course provides a comprehensive overview of this area of the Service Lifecycle and prepares you to take the Service Operation exam, leading to the ITIL® Service Operation certification. The exam is included.

ITIL® Service Operation is one of the nine ITIL® Intermediate courses which can be mixed and matched to gain the credits needed for the ITIL® Expert certification, and one of the five courses which make up the Service Lifecycle Stream. Service Operation concerns the principles, processes, operational activities, and functions required to manage the performance of products and services.

This Service Operation course opens by examining how better service operation can be created by adapting to business change as well as how service operation can help ensure business continuity, maintain security and customer satisfaction, and provide a useful and universal structure with which to handle incidents. The course then moves on to cover the various functions of service operation, including the different types of service desk and their responsibilities (such as logging incidents and communicating with customers), IT operations management (which details how to establish and maintain a stable IT infrastructure), and the requirements of the Application Management lifecycle. Finally, the course ends with a focus on the practical elements of implementing service operations, including managing change to service operations and minimising disruption, and assessing how to tackle challenges and risks involved in the optimisation of an ITSM ecosystem.

By providing a comprehensive framework of the activities that should be carried out during the operation of services, Service Operation will be particularly beneficial to anybody involved in these processes. This Service Operation course counts for 3 credits towards an ITIL® Practitioner qualification.
