PEOPLECERT-Accredited SureSkills proudly announce Ireland’s first ever ITIL® Practitioner Training Course

16 March 2016, London, UK - ITIL is the world’s IT Service Management standard and the feedback from delegates who recently attended the first ever ITIL® Practitioner Course indicated they appreciated the two-day course which provided individuals with practical guidance on ‘how’ to adopt and adapt the ITIL framework and puts the factual knowledge of ITIL® Foundation, which they had taken with SureSkills, into a more practical context. The ITIL® Practitioner certification offers practical guidance on how to adopt and adapt the ITIL framework to support your business' objectives.

This new programme is a natural next step for most ITIL Foundation delegates who have already learned the basics of IT Service Management (ITSM) and the business value of well-designed and delivered services. Where ITIL Foundation focuses on the 'what' and the 'why', ITIL Practitioner shows 'how' to start adopting and adapting the ITIL framework within day-to-day situations and responsibilities, giving individuals more confidence in their ability to structure and contribute to ITSM initiatives.

Commenting on the course, Ruaidhri McSharry, Director of Service Management in SureSkills said: “I feel that the participants really benefited from the practical context of showing how ITIL can be applied and SureSkills ourselves having the practical experience applying ITIL made the sessions even more real.”

Commenting on the feedback from the delegates: Lead trainer Aidan Walsh said that “They found the instruction clear and useful, and the atmosphere lively and participative, and 100% of the participants were satisfied or very satisfied with the way the training was structured. As the courses continue, participants’ comments and feedback will certainly be taken into account.”
