The End of ITIL v3

Now that ITIL 4 has officially landed and the higher modules from the Managing Professional and Strategic Leader streams are launched, Axelos announced the discontinuation of ITIL v3, by the end of 2021.

In order to give customers sufficient time to transition to ITIL 4, this will take place in a phased approach. The confirmed dates for discontinuing the previous version of ITIL 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 Jan 2022
  • ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition examination (English) to be discontinued as of 1 July 2022

This means that we won’t be able to offer ITIL v3 Foundation training and examinations from the 1st July 2021, followed by the discontinuation of the Intermediate examinations on 1 January 2022.

For those who are still in the process of collecting the 17 credits required to sit the ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition examination, time is running out. 2Grips will offer all Intermediate courses by self-paced e-learning till the end of 2021.

ITIL v3 Experts will be able to obtain the ITIL 4 Managing Professional certificate with one single exam till the 1st July 2022. So don’t forget to schedule your ITIL 4 MP Transition classsroom training or e-learning course.

As we’ve seen a huge demand for ITIL 4 training courses and we expect even greater demand for these courses with the end of the previous version, 2Grips will continue to offer ITIL training and certification and and we will upscale the capacity if necessary.

We’re looking forward to introducing or transitioning you to the world’s leading certification in IT service management.
