What is the difference between Lifecycle and Capability Qualification Certification?
The Lifecycle and Capability certification forms the two streams/paths, or branches, of the ITIL intermediate-level qualification scheme.
The Lifecycle stream-which includes the service design qualification-consists of five modules or certifications. These certifications focus on the service lifecycle, the use of process and practice within the lifecycle and developing the skills needed to deliver quality service management practices in an organisation.
The Capability certificates, which are made up of four modules, are focused toward those who want a thorough understanding of ITIL processes and roles. The primary focus is on activities, execution and use of the processes throughout the entire service lifecycle.
