The ITIL 4 CDS course covers the integration of a number of “IT” areas of work: from design, to build and test, launch, run and support of products and services. The course provides information and guidance across a number of areas that are required to build and maintain a broad “professional” portfolio: collaboration, strong and positive culture, integrated teams, and employee satisfaction. The course provides an understanding on how to integrate different value streams and activities to create, deliver, and support IT-enabled products and services. It specifically focuses on two value streams, value stream for a new service, and value stream for user support. It also discusses the techniques to prioritise work and methods to manage work.
The ITIL 4 CDS module is part of the ITIL 4 Managing Professional (MP) stream, which provides practical and technical knowledge about how to run successful IT-enabled services, teams and workflows.
This course also includes a copy of the ITIL CDS Handbook, containing practical material for reference back in the workplace.
The course pricing includes the ITIL 4 Specialist: Create, Deliver and Support (CDS) Exam at the end of day 3 of the course. It is a 90-minute closed book exam consisting of 40 multiple choice questions and a pass mark of 70% (28/40). Practice exam papers and questions are provided, and reviewed to assist in preparation.
It is highly recommended that you spend some time each evening of this course reviewing and consolidating what you’ve learned, to be well prepared for the exam.
