The ISO/IEC 20000 Auditor course is a 2-day classroom training relevant for professionals who play a role as a 3rd party auditor in an ISO/IEC 20000 assessment. This course is designed for professionals and certified auditors who require an orientation into ITSM in general and ISO/IEC 2000 in particular. Internal auditors working in an organization which is implementing or already has ISO/IEC 20000 certification will also find this course useful to improve not only their understanding of the subject but also the application of ISO/IEC 20000 within their organization.

At the end of the 2-day classroom training, the APMG certification exam, which is a multiple-choice exam, can be conducted. This training does not cover audit techniques or the issues involved in preparing an organization for an audit.

The certificate is awarded to candidates passing the relevant examination, which can only be taken as part of an accredited training course. The course covers the interpretation and application of the ISO/IEC 20000 standard. The exam consists of a closed-book, 25-question, multiple-choice test, which is paper based. To pass, candidates must answer 18 or more questions correctly.


This qualification is aimed at existing third-party or internal auditors who wish to understand the specific requirements of auditing IT service management systems for conformity with the ISO/IEC 20000 standard.


Delegates attending the course are required to have a minimum of three years’ experience conducting audits in an IT environment. This may be as a third-party auditor or as an internal auditor for an organization. This qualification will build on basic audit and IT knowledge with regard to the contents of ISO/IEC 20000 and its use.
