Knowledge Management Institute

Certified Knowledge Practitioner (CKP™)

The CKP™ is the Core Certification from KM Institute; a lower-
cost foundational solution for KM Professionals whose roles
include KM Coordinators, Facilitators and other business unit
KM representatives. Learn the essential skills/knowledge for KM
initiatives in the early startup phase.

The CKP™ is also the foundation for eventual specialty focus
(CKS) or KM Team leadership focus (CKM).

Who Should Attend?

The KM Institute CKP™ is ideal for anyone interested in gaining a solid grasp of common KM principles - at a more advanced level than our "KM101" program.  CKP™ Graduates range from strategic business unit-level KM Coordinators/Reps to the KM Team members - to those just initiating KM as 'Grass Roots' initiatives. 
Our students include government, military, commercial and non-profits.

Those anticipating leading a strategic KM Team should consider the Certified Knowledge Manager program (CKM).

How to Earn your Certification

  • Optional Study-ahead, Pre-Class e-Learning Modules - All CKP students gain access to the KM Institute LMS for a review of the CKP program content.  Students who wish to study ahead may do so before class, and there will be a live discussion on that content in class. 
  • Attend the CKP Workshop - typically a two-day face-to-face workshop where you participate in practical exercises and "hands-on KM."  Now offered in multiple locations throughout the world - click on our calendar of events, and choose the location and dates best suited for you.  Private workshops available for groups - see info below.
  • Complete the Online Post-Class Testing -  done entirely online, so you do not have to travel to a testing site. There are no additional fees, and, your Certificate is ready to print immediately after you pass. A score of 70% or better is necessary to pass, and you may retake the test - no charge - as many times as necessary to pass. Testing is part of your Certification package and there are no additional fees. 

Further Enrichment:  The KMI Knowledge Hub

   Your KM learning doesn't stop when you achieve Certification.  As an added bonus, all
   Certification students receive a free membership in the KMI Knowledge Hub, designed
   as your "go to" location for:

  • Continuous Learning  – via "Hot Topics" Training Videos - presentations by subject matter experts on specialty areas relevant to KM practitioners
