ITIL Managing Across Lifecyle (MALC)

ITIL Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC) sits between the Intermediate and Expert certifications and is the final required certification in order to gain the ITIL Expert status. It is intended to help professionals apply and integrate their knowledge of ITIL in real-world settings and in their own workplace.
While candidates can earn 17 credits through various learning paths leveraging any combination of the Foundation and Intermediate courses, it has been observed that candidates wishing to pursue the Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC) module benefit from taking the Continual Service Improvement and Service Strategy modules from the ITIL Intermediate certification scheme as part of their learning path.
Once you successfully complete your MALC certification, PeopleCert will also issue your ITIL Expert certificate.
ITIL Expert is achieved by accumulating 22 credits through the first two levels of the Scheme, including MALC. The ITIL Expert level is aimed at those individuals who are interested in demonstrating a superior level of knowledge of ITIL through their ITIL Certification.
Candidates who achieve ITIL Expert level will also satisfy the pre-requisite entry criteria for the ITIL Master Level, the highest level of certification within the ITIL scheme.
