Why study this course

The ITIL 4 Specialist: Create, Deliver and Support (CDS) course is designed to provide IT practitioners with an understanding of service quality and improvement methods, enabling them to continue to deliver innovative yet reliable tech-enabled services to their customers in an increasingly competitive market.

The ITIL 4 CDS course covers the integration of a number of “IT” areas of work: from design, to build and test, launch, run and support of products and services. The course provides information and guidance across a number of areas that are required to build and maintain a broad “professional” portfolio: collaboration, strong and positive culture, integrated teams, and employee satisfaction. The course provides an understanding on how to integrate different value streams and activities to create, deliver, and support IT-enabled products and services. It specifically focuses on two value streams, value stream for a new service, and value stream for user support. It also discusses the techniques to prioritise work and methods to manage work.

The ITIL 4 CDS module is part of the ITIL 4 Managing Professional (MP) stream, which provides practical and technical knowledge about how to run successful IT-enabled services, teams and workflows.

This course also includes a copy of the ITIL CDS Handbook, containing practical material for reference back in the workplace.

ExaminationThis course pricing includes a voucher for the ITIL 4 Create, Deliver and Support (CDS) Exam which can be taken via remote proctor. It is a 90-minute closed book exam consisting of 40 multiple choice questions, with a pass mark of 70% (28/40).
