Hi there @SIMON-TAPLIN
Thanks for being an excellent participator in our forums! We appreciate your feedback and helpful suggestions to other members.
Believe it or not, if you're active in the ITIL/ITSM community you will have seen discussions about this possibility for about a year (maybe more). For the Foundation level, this won't be too much of an effort, however for those of us who have Managing Professional and Strategic Leader certifications, it will be very expensive and a lot of work. Personally I'm hoping that the CPD program will make sense. But I'm not holding my breath. :)
