Any one done ITIL?
Just asking, after careful consideration think that's the right path for me. Over how many months /year should it realistically take to get to expert level?

I spent 3 solid days doing the foundation course - it's pretty easy but I don't really know how long it takes to get past that.
Much of it seems to be about learning to use words in the way ITIL means them rather than the real world (but don't say that to your trainer; it could cause a heart attack :-))

I did the three day ITIL foundation, great course but seems it would take forever to get to practitioner.
I dare say those who do complete are managers of massive datacentres and are on £££

I really enjoyed doing ITIL. I did the 3 day foundation course and then the 5 day service support course - I recommend it for anyone.
I want to do the service delivery as well - another 5 days.
If you do those 2 you can sit 2 x 3 hour exams and get yourself a HND in IT Management.

@ apearce, how much does it cost and where did you take the course?

I did mine with these guys - very good. Had others on the course from places like BT and Network Rail. Always good to network with these kind of people.
QA – ITIL training, PRINCE2 training, Microsoft training, VMware training, management training and more – around 1500 courses throughout the UK

I'm with apearce on the course provider (QA) I did my ITIL Foundation and Prince2 Foundation and Practitioner with them and they were excellent.
Cant remember exactly what I paid but I do know that you can (and should) knock them down from their advertised price, I think I had a 20% discount on the advertised price. If you want a point of contact at QA pm me and I'll pass on my account managers details.

I did the v3 Foundation exam by self studying with [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Passing-your-ITIL-foundation-exam/dp/011331079X"]this [/ame]book over a week and sat the exam at the end of that week. Passed on the passing score, as I found it dry and boring. Choose to take the exam via EXIN instead of ISEB as it was a few quid cheaper.
Not sure if I could put myself thru the other ITIL courses just because the foundation was so boring, but each to their own

There is a self-study pack available here:
ITIL V3 Foundation e-Learning Package - Buy Online at the ILX Group Store
for the foundation level. It's £369 and includes the price of the exam which they reckon is £100.
NB The terms say you can only use it to train one person!

I've passed the v3 foundation too.
Its all about the vocabulary, endless reams of terminology.
