Q. What is the BH0-006 exam?
A. The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), also known as Infrastructure Management Service (IMS), is a set of concepts and policies for managing information technology (IT) infrastructure, development and operations.
ITIL gives a detailed description of a number of important IT practices with comprehensive checklists, tasks, and procedures that any IT organization can tailor to its needs. ITIL is published in a series of books, each of which covers an IT management topic. The names ITIL and IT Infrastructure Library are registered trademarks of the United Kingdom’s Office of Government Commerce (OGC).
The ITIL V3 Foundation Level of the ITIL Qualification Scheme focuses on providing knowledge and comprehension of the key concepts, structure, terminology and processes of ITIL.
This entry level certification offers candidates a general awareness of the key elements of the ITIL V3 Service Lifecycle, including the linkages between Lifecycle stages, the processes used and their contribution to Service Management practices.
Q. What are the OGC ITIL certification providers?
A. The OGC ITIL certification providers are as follows:
- EXIN – The National Exam Institute for Informatics (Netherlands)
- ISEB – The Information Systems Examination Board (UK), part of the British Computer Society
Since the early 1990s, EXIN and ISEB have been setting up the ITIL-based certification program, developing and providing ITIL exams at three different levels: Foundation, Practitioner and Manager.
EXIN and BCS/ISEB (the British Computer Society) have from that time onwards been the only two examination providers in the world to develop formally acknowledged ITIL certifications, provide ITIL exams and accredit ITIL training providers worldwide. These rights were obtained from OGC, the British government institution and owner of the ITIL trademark.
Q. What are the prerequisites for taking the ITIL V3 Foundation BH0-006 exam?
A. The ITIL Version 3 (V3) Qualifications scheme provides a modular approach to the ITIL certification, and is comprised of a series of certifications focused on different aspects of ITIL Best Practice, to various degrees of depth and detail. The modular, tiered approach to certification not only offers increased flexibility to candidates relating to the disciplines or areas of ITIL that they are able to study, but generally makes ITIL certification more accessible and achievable.
Q. What are the benefits of becoming ITIL V3 Foundation certified (BH0-006)?
A. The benefits of becoming ITIL V3 Foundation certified are as follows:
The majority of people that consider ITIL as a qualification do so for career and personal development reasons. Often this is driven by a change of job or career, where you notice that to get to the top of the CV pile, you need to have an extra qualification like ITIL (even if you have been involved in service management successfully for many years without it). In many advertised positions, ITIL has become a prerequisite.
The majority of companies that implement ITIL also encourage their employees to take the exams. If your staff has accredited ITIL qualifications, then you can present your company as using ITIL. This works particularly well where you tender for or supply to any large IT organizations or outsourcing companies.
Q. What certificate and credit does the BH0-006 exam provide?
A. Successful completion of the Foundation certificate also fulfils the pre-requisite entry criteria for the next level of study within the ITIL qualifications scheme; the ITIL V3 Intermediate Level. The Official Accreditor has developed the Credit Profiler to help candidates calculate the number of credits they have achieved in the ITIL V3 scheme.
