I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ITIL Foundation is a level of ITIL certification.

ITIL V3 is the release version of ITIL, I believe the most up to date version is 2011

ITIL V3 is no more offered; rather it is the updated ITIL 2011. Do not worry; it wouldn’t give you any differentiation in the job market. So you don’t need to retake the ITIL 2011 certification..if you already certified with ITILV3
