Product Description

The ITIL® Managing Across the Lifecycle Certificate (MALC) is the final component that leads to the ITIL® Expert in IT Service Management qualification.

The Managing Across the Lifecycle course builds on the knowledge and experience that learners obtained in the Intermediate courses. Learners are required to apply this knowledge, as well as the experience they have obtained performing service management functions.  Each of the scenarios covers multiple learning objectives from the MALC syllabus. Additionally, the entire syllabus is fully covered in the course. Learners, who perform well in this advanced training program, will do well in the final MALC exam.

Learners work in small teams, or operate individually, and when working in teams their team roles rotate. Each team member must lead at least one strategic assignment.

PassionIT delivers a next generation learning experience with the MALC training program. This program will test your readiness to become an ITIL® Expert, and will guide you through the process to make sure that you understand your growth areas, as well as the areas in which you excel.
