During this year's opening speech at Pink 19, Mark Basham, CEO of AXELOS, announced the launch of the first ITIL® 4 Master Sponsorship Programme.

With the new scheme AXELOS will be sponsoring 50 people in their attainment of the ITIL 4 Master certification, the highest achievable level of ITIL.

Mark Basham, CEO at AXELOS, says: “I’m really excited about our new programme through which we will be able to support outstanding members of the ITSM industry.

“Currently there are only around 100 ITIL Masters in the world. Achieving ITIL Master level is a huge accomplishment and holds a lot of prestige within the IT service management community.

“We are looking forward to sharing more information about the programme later this year and to welcome the first candidates to our sponsorship scheme.”

To achieve the ITIL 4 Master certification, professionals must be able to explain and justify their ability to apply the principles, methods and techniques from ITIL in the workplace. In addition, candidates must have both the ITIL Managing Professional (ITIL MP) and ITIL Strategic Leader (ITIL SL) designations.

More details about the ITIL 4 Master sponsorship programme including details on how to apply will be released later in the year. Individuals can register their interest on our ITIL Master Sponsorship Programme page to receive regular updates.
