Benefit of Studying ITIL’s Foundation and Practitioner Certificates Online

There are currently at least 52 accredited ITIL training providers in the UK. Regardless of a candidate’s location and schedule, there are bound to be at least a few providers that meet their requirement, ranging from management trainers to vocational centres and even universities! However, an often overlooked option for candidates seeking to take ITIL training courses is the online alternative. It’s worth remembering that certifications obtained from an accredited online provider will be just as valid to Axelos as the one from a classroom. Besides, taking the course online offers several advantages that no classroom can ever match.

• Flexible Timing


An average ITIL foundation certification training takes about three days. For working professionals, this could prove problematic. Not only do they have to take leave or time off from work, they might also need to ask for help with responsibilities at home.


With online courses, candidates don’t have to burn precious quote of annual leave days. Neither do they have to drive like Lewis Hamilton to reach their office, classroom or home on time. Instead, they could just pull a chair and sit in front of their computer at home at the end of the day. Or in the mornings during the weekend – it’s their choice.


• Logistically Convenient


Some candidates are based in remote locations, and going for ITIL training would necessitate driving for hours or even staying at a hotel overnight. The situation becomes more complicated for foreign candidates who want to receive certification from highly rated course providers of their choice in UK.


By taking online classes though, these issues are instantly eliminated, as long as they have a computer with an internet connection at home. Candidates can receive teaching from the trainer of their choice without having to worry about travel and accommodation constraints.


• Follow Your Own Pace


Remember that time in school when you were struggling to catch up with what your math teacher is saying, but they’ve already moved on to the next chapter? Or what about teachers who are hanging on their mobile phone for almost the entire class? And let’s not forget about classmates who are busy talking in loud whispers, drowning out the voice of the teacher in front.


The fact is, classroom based learning can be tough. The learning ability of two people is not identical; some take a little longer to absorb and analyse data. Teachers and classmates, meanwhile, might not create a healthy learning atmosphere.


This is where online classes come in. You get to decide how fast or how slow you want to go, without worrying about the reaction of your teacher or classmates. Speaking of which, you won’t have to worry about having them around while studying from the comfort of your own home!


In addition, some ITIL course providers actually have great visual teaching tools and interactive programs that make learning much easier!


So, are you ready to explore the idea of online ITIL training?
