The purpose of the ITIL® Practitioner certificate program is to ensure the candidate has sufficient understanding and hands-on experience of how to apply, assess, and improve ITIL® best practices.

 

ITIL PRACTITIONER EXAMINATION

The ITIL Practitioner examination is structured as follows:

  • Material permitted: The examination is ‘open book’, i.e. the ITIL® Practitioner Guidance publication is allowed for reference during the examination.
  • Examination duration: 1 hour and 45 minutes
  • Examination Format: The ITIL Practitioner examination is scenario-based i.e. the questions relate to a case study. This case study (referred to as the ‘Scenario’) is the same for all sample and official exams. The Scenario is included in the Scenario Booklet with 6 sets of additional information necessary to answer each section of questions.
  • Questions: There are 6 sets of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) in the Question Booklet, and each set tests particular learning outcomes from the candidate’s course of study. There are 40 questions in total and each question is worth 1 mark.
  • Pass mark: Candidates are expected to achieve a score of 70% (28 marks) or higher in order to pass the examination and be awarded ITIL® Practitioner certification.
