We want to help you transition your learners from ITIL v3 to ITIL 4. To do this, we’ve created a special Fast Track to ITIL 4 to ready your learners for the Managing Professional (MP) Transition module.

What is the Fast Track to ITIL 4

To be eligible to take the ITIL Managing Professional Transition module, a learner needs 17 or more ITIL v3 credits or has to be an ITIL v3 Expert. learners who have less than 17 credits will have to either gain those 17 ITIL v3 credits or start with ITIL 4 Foundation if they wish to continue their ITIL journey. The ITIL Fast Track is a special self-study program that helps your learners obtain the necessary 17 credits in the best way to help your learners transition in the most convenient, effective, and economical way.

The Fast Track to ITIL 4 provides access to all Capability or Lifecycle Modules, allowing learners to pick and choose the modules relevant to get to 17 credits.

Why choose the Fast Track to ITIL 4

The ITIL Fast Track reduces 15 to 20 days of classroom attendance to only self-study time and eliminates the need to wait for the advanced ITIL 4 modules to become available. learners can acquire all the knowledge through the ebooks and we offer dedicated email support by an AXELOS lead architect member. This makes using the Fast Track more cost-effective, faster and offers the learner the chance to be amongst the first professionals to earn the ITIL Managing Professional title.

Because learners will probably already hold one or more ITIL v3 certifications, it may be relevant for a learner to continue in one of the two following routes, depending on which certifications a learner currently already holds or what the main focus of the learner is:

Fast Track to ITIL 4 – Lifecycle Route (17 credits)
Fast Track to ITIL 4 – Capability Route (18 credits)


  • Learners must hold the ITIL Foundation Certificate. Holders of a Foundation certificate from an earlier version of ITIL, e.g., earlier ITIL qualifications, must pass the current ITIL Foundation exam before attending this course.
  • There is no minimum mandatory requirement but professional experience working in IT Service Management is highly advisable.
