About the course

Learn how to achieve operational excellence through ITIL Release, Control, and Validation processes, activities, and functions.

In this course, you will examine the practical aspects of the ITIL service lifecycle and processes associated with the release, control, and validation (RCV) of services and service delivery.

In a sensible, experiential learning environment you will learn the core disciplines of ITIL best practices.
