I’m in Brisbane – at the end of day one of my ITIL v3 Managers bridge course.
The training and exam are for the ITIL v3 Managers Certificate. That gives me the ‘ITIL Expert’
The ‘ITIL Expert’ is the new description for the ITIL v3 Diploma; also an update on the Intermediate modules for the direct route – they are slowly being rolled out later this year and into 2009. I wouldn’t expect to see the Managing across Lifecycle until maybe March 2009.
The other interesting point is that the ‘Advanced Level’ in the diagram doesn’t exist yet.
