IT-CMF TRAINING

IT-CMF Passport Training (1-day)

This one-day course introduces participants to the fundamentals of IT-CMF – its terminology, its basic concepts and its core principles.

The course is a perfect starting point for individuals who require a basic understanding of IT-CMF – and want their knowledge validated through the award of an IT-CMF Affiliate Certificate.

I firmly believe that applying IT-CMF will move us from 'I think' to 'I know where we are'.

The IT-CMF Passport course is focused on communicating the fundamentals of IT-CMF.

At the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • Articulate the business value of the framework
  • Describe the structure of the framework
  • Explain how the framework can be used to assess an organisation's IT challenges
  • Describe the IT-CFM assessment process
  • Describe the types and applications of IT-CMF assessments
  • Describe the components of an IT-CMF critical process.

IT-CMF certification is an ideal way for an IT professional to validate their knowledge and comprehension of the framework. Earning an IT-CMF certification provides a clear demonstration of the skills and knowledge required to participate in an organisation's IT-CMF related project or activity (such as assessments).

The IT-CMF Passport and other certification exams are designed to test the knowledge and skills central to understanding and leveraging the IT-CMF framework.

Aligned with IVI's five-tier educational model, IT-CMF Certification enables IT professionals to build upon their prior knowledge, skills, and professional experience, and progress to more advanced qualifications in the framework.

The course and its certification will be of interest and of benefit to:

  • Individuals requiring a basic understanding of IT-CMF
  • Professionals working in or responsible for IT management: its strategy, planning, development, delivery, operation and execution
  • Individuals looking for a first introduction to IT-CMF
  • Individuals who want to step towards Tier 2 certification in a staged approach.

On completion of the course participants sit a test that validates their basic knowledge of IT-CMF – its terminology, its basic concepts and its core principles.
