Very qualified trainer. He gave a very clear and detailed explanation.

Bart Van Maercke, Service Desk Engineer, Synergics

A strong basis on service management and an excellent stepstone for more practical trainings.

Tom Herman, QA consultant, Kapla Consulting

I knew ITIL was a theoretical approach, which was visible in the course documentation. The teacher however tried to introduce practical examples which often helped to understand better the content.

Wim Hofmans, Eusap Competence Support Manager, Manasco

The ITIL foundation seminar gave me a clear and complete overview of all composing parts and processes that are involved in an IT environment. Good refresh of processes that were known already, and completion of some knowledge gaps.

Kris De Bauw, Sr Project Leader, Wolters Kluwer Belgium

The content is structured and summarized in an efficient way that helps to clearly differentiate between all the aspects of IT. It didn't feel as an usual training because it's very interactive and meaningful, I had no problem to stay focused all the way.
