    I can heartedly recommend the practitioners' course. Good delivery and good materials.

    I did the Practioner course (waiting for the exam and the Manager's course) and I can say that it was very good. If you've done any form of ITIL in the past, this will be a breath of fresh air.

    IMO, it's not the case of ITIL vs FITS, as FITS is based on ITIL - slimmed down and less complex, but it's still a set of best practices within IT.

    Is FITS recognised outside education? I would say the bases/practices are, however the term "FITS" possibly not or at least not to the majority (even though FITS would be more acceptable to the SMB market). After all I believe ITIL not only had the UK Government backing it but also approx 10 year head start

    You can see this link from 2004 on TechRepublic's website, so it has been around

    ITIL Vs Fits.....its quite tricky to even make a comparrison.

    I think it is important to remember that FITS is also specific to education. Training and its delivery in industry is evolving. More and more organisations are working with training providers and tailoring courses to deliver a specific content.

    Delivering training this way gives delegates the tools they need and the skills they will require for the Jobs they do.

    FITS is very Forward thinking in its development and i'm sure it will go from strength to strength.

    Will these be held anywhere near London at all or only at the Worcester centre?

    Hi Lee

    Not London for me, but if it ever ventures up to the North East i'd be interested.

    There are a range of training providers ... we use NEOS IT in Northants but I will see if I can publish the full spread. The other thing to do is to visit The FITS Foundation - Professional qualifications and support for ICT staff within education and request information about training in your area.
