CRP Henri Tudor and ITpreneurs Certify First Batch of TIPA Assessors for ITIL® in Europe and North America

'TIPA Assessor for ITIL' Course and Certification Enable Professionals to Use the TIPA Framework Based on ISO/IEC 15504 to Perform IT Process Assessments

ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2011) - ITpreneurs, the global leader for IT Best Practices competence development programs, conducted two pilots of their new 'TIPA Assessor for ITIL' course, developed jointly with research organization CRP Henri Tudor. These courses delivered recently in Luxembourg and North America, trained and certified 29 TIPA Assessors, imparting knowledge and skills to use the TIPA framework in conducting IT process assessments.

Certified TIPA® Assessors for ITIL are skilled professionals who use the TIPA framework and supporting tools to participate in IT process maturity assessments in organizations that have adopted ITIL for IT Service Management. The course provides great insight into the concepts and keys components of TIPA to perform structured and repeatable assessments that enable benchmarking and process improvement initiatives.

Margo Fullilove, ITIL/ITSM Program Director at Atos International, who attended the course in North America, said, "I enjoyed being part of the class and look forward to having key members of my team attend future sessions. I think the class and the TIPA methodology for ITIL V3 maturity assessments will be a big hit in the North American market. We have needed an industry standard for some time now, and I believe this will fill that gap."
