PDA Certificate in IT Service Management
Bringing ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) to the field has caused many to say 'What is ITIL?' and is a new item/area for many individuals. ITIL belongs to OGC (Office of Government Commerce) and details can be found at the following websites (www.ogc.gov.uk/ or www.itil.co.uk/). It is the SQA's intention to present ITIL to the field with two presentation slots allocated at the event on the 18th of August (ie The Computing and IT Showcase Event).
Yes, we are still working through the holidays and this group have been beavering away to produce a PDA Certificate in IT Service Management which are based around these standards at foundation level.
