Today Ive mostly been learning about ITIL

LifeCycleSince I started working at Arco in Hull there was a lot of talk around bringing ITIL best practices into the company and into the way the service desk works.

Today I sat through day one of a three day ITIL foundation course. Although a lot of the content of the course makes sense, and is common sense. Doing things the ITIL was is not something I am used to, and will be a large change in the way I work.

So away I went, my first step of course was Google.

I found a large amount of ITIL documentation and links around the ITIL subject, which I was easily able to sort into two groups.As I didn’t want to be bombarded with sales callsemails I skipped any sites which required registration and continued to look for Free sites and downloads.

I soon found that there are quite a few podcasts available via Apple’s iTunes, which I downloaded… Whilst listening to the podcasts I found a few mock exam websites, which I then started working through.. Here’s a few links to those tests:

As I am studying for my exam on Wednesday, I am currently unable to release the changes I have made to my BETA releases as previously planned.

Right……… Back to studying..
