Yes, there will finally be an update to the Video Mentor book!

Hi, all! Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve updated this thing. I thought I’d pop in and give you a pretty exciting update!

If you’re one of the folks who enjoyed my ITIL V3 Foundation Exam Video Mentor book/DVD set from a few years back, you’ve probably been wondering when there’d be an update. Well, I just signed a contract with my publisher, Pearson IT Certification, to create an updated version based on ITIL 2011 and the latest versions of the exams! Yee-haw! In fact, I just submitted my outline 20 minutes ago. I’m pretty excited! It’s tentatively titled ITIL 2011 Foundation Exam LiveLesson, though that may certainly change.

The format will be different, however. Instead of it being a book/DVD set like my previous work, this will be a streaming video series only, available on Safari, and on the other platforms Pearson publishes content to. There won’t be a published book. However, if you’re like me, you like to have printed stuff in front of you. You can either take a zillion screen shots (ugh, no fun), or you can grab the supplemental printed materials I’ll have available here on my website for a few bucks extra; I promise it’ll be worth every dime. I don’t want to gouge anyone.

Many companies are slashing their training budgets and are asking their employees to take computer-based training, and my video series will be an entire ITIL 2011 Foundation class online. It’s about as close as you can get to having me in your classroom.

I’m scheduled to fly to Pearson’s video studio in San Francisco (wheeee!) in April to get it all recorded, and it’ll hopefully be available by the summer. I guess I’ll need to buy a new shirt or two. :)

So, if you can hold out until the summer, you’ll have access to some really neat ITIL Foundation training via Safari featuring yours truly. I promise it’ll be worth the wait.

See you then!

All the best for 2015!

  • Hi Hany–

    You’ll definitely want to take the EX0-117 exam, which is the one based on ITIL 2011. To be honest, I’m not sure why they have the EX0-001 version listed in their catalog since that’s the code for ITIL V3 exams, and those were retired in 2012. *shrug* Sounds like they need to update their catalogue!

    (ITIL V3 was replaced with ITIL 2011.)

    Thanks, and good luck!
