Top 10 Certifications With Staying Power
7. Information Technology Infrastructure Library
IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) was created by England’s government in the 1980s, and has, over the past three decades, become the most widely used framework for IT management in the world, according to Global Management.
The broad-based certification covers everything from availability and capacity management to change and incident management to application and IT operations management.
A joint venture between the U.K. government and a business process outsourcing company owns the ITIL standards and licenses and defines the certification tiers, but leaves it up to accredited partners to develop training and certification coursework.
The v3 Foundation is the most popular ITIL certification, held by 1,016 people bringing in an average salary of $95,430, according to Global Knowledge.
