Charles Sturt Uni leads ITIL accreditation

Part of EXIN partnership

According to Mr Martin Hale, an adjunct senior lecturer at CSU, the strong demand for ITSM best practice and standards-based course material is supported by hard evidence.

Since EXIN introduced ITIL Foundations examinations in 2000, there has been a phenomenal rise in the number of exams that have been undertaken each year.

Numbers are up from around 15,000 in 2001 to nearly 150,000 in 2007.

"ITSM and ISO/IEC 20000 related study is one of the hottest IT course materials around at the moment and we have engineered this initiative based on feedback from industry and students," Hale said.

"We had over 1400 people register interest in the two days after we announced the inclusion of ITIL certifications.

"This tremendous response to our ITSM-related course material is over twice what we would expect when introducing other new certifications.

"It is entirely consistent with the explosive growth the whole IT industry is seeing in the adoption of the ITSM best practice frameworks and international standards such as ISO/IEC 20000 to support business outcomes-focused IT departments and IT governance requirements."

Hale said steps are being taken to embed a formal framework and standards training and exams as core subjects in the Masters degree that is achieved through the university's state-of-the-art Distance Education model.

Charles Sturt University is the eighth largest university in Australia. with over 22,000 remote students. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
