    You can self study the ITIL v3 Foundation and take thru' ISEB or EXIN (ten quid cheaper), booking thru Prometric/Pearson (can't remember which) BUT to take any of the other ITIL V3 papers you must have completed an authorised course (can be online). See something like The Art of Service who are based in Australia (not that that matters).

    In terms of PRINCE2, again you can self study the Foundation exam but you then have to sit the exam at one of the public exam sessions (usually in London). Again, I believe, to do the Practitioner you must attend an authorised course (can be online) - see something like SPOCE

    You should also be aware that the PRINCE2 Foundation is just about to change so you may want to wait and complete it under the newer syllabus.

    Hi there, for Prince2 take a look here:
    http://www.apmgroup.co.uk/PRINCE2/Qualifications/HowToStart.asp
    You can book the exam for London, Milton Keynes, York and Chester. I self studied for both exams using the Prince2 official manual and the Dummies book. The official manual can be a nightmare to read so the dummies book simplifed some areas with good examples.

    For ITIL I used the Art of Service book that came with an online course, nicely laid out and easy to follow. Only took me a weeks worth of studying so I would definitely recommend it.


    Cheers
