05 November 2012, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, UK..... From 3rd December ITIL Intermediate Service Operation (SO) and ITIL Intermediate Service Transition (ST) examinations will be available in Brazilian Portuguese. This means that Service Management professionals with Brazilian Portuguese as their first language will be able to take the examination in their mother tongue.
Richard Pharro, CEO, The Official Accreditor, which is licensed by the UK Government to administer examination institutes and exams for the ITIL certification scheme, said, "I am delighted that there are a large number of service management professionals in Brazil who want to prove their credentials by gaining ITIL qualifications. This is a good thing for them as it enhances their CV and contributes to their continuing professional development. It is also a good thing for the service management industry as a whole because it improves standards and creates a benchmark for professionalism."
Colin Rudd, Chairman, itSMF International said, "It is good to know that there is a commitment from the Accreditor to translate ITIL examinations into multiple languages. Brazil is a strategically important region for service management as its organizations make a significant impact on the world economic stage. I hope these new releases will encourage service managers to engage with the ITIL certification scheme and we look forward to issuing more certifications to Brazilian IT Professionals."
These additional modules join ITIL Intermediate Service Offerings and Agreements (SOA), Planning, Protection and Optimization (PPO), Operational Support and Analysis (OSA) and Release, Control and Validation (RCV), which are already available in Brazilian Portuguese.
Richard confirmed that further ITIL translations will be available soon.
