What types of certifications are available?
eKnowledgeCenter offers a combined certification of
competency in Knowledge Management (CKM) and Knowledge
Environment Engineering (CKEE™). For
competency assurance we provide an online exam which
is available after completion of the online courses
and online or face-to-face workshop. This
exam process distinguishes the eKC Certified Knowledge
Manager (CKM) training program from all other
certification programs available in the market today
which usually offer a KM Certification after completion
of their seminar or workshop. We consider
these certifications evidence of workshop attendance
or completion rather than certifications of competency.
Why become certified?
professional development is a necessity in today's
business world. As more organizations adopt the
use of KM methods and practices, the need for qualified
KM professionals will continue to grow. The eKC Certified Knowledge
Manager (CKM) designations provide assurance
to employers of participation in a first-class program
based on standards established by the Knowledge
Management Certification Board (KMCB)®.
