AXELOS has decided to stop offering ITIL v3 certification in IT service management by the end of 2021. Discontinuation of the ITIL v3 Foundation and Intermediate examinations will be in phases to allow candidates enough time to complete their ITIL v3 Intermediate level certifications so they can accumulate enough credits to qualify for the ITIL 4 MP Transition examination.
The confirmed timings are as follows:
- ITIL v3 Foundation (English) to be discontinued as of 1 July 2021
- ITIL v3 Intermediates (English) to be discontinued as of 1 January 2022
- ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition examination to be discontinued as of 1 July 2022
