CKM™: 6 Consumer Tips

Yes, there are other training companies and professional societies offering some form of "CKM" training. Here are six simple "tips" to help you find your best option::

1) Make sure you are allowed to review a complete course of study (syllabus)

2) Is pricing available upfront or "hidden?" What discounts are available, and are they honored? KMI offers a variety of discounts, including 20% off for "Early Sign Up" or 10% off for KMI Members (Membership is free - more info available here)

3) Why not take a moment to compare the actual backgrounds and accomplishments of your instructors? Fact: the CKM was originally authored and delivered by KM Institute's Douglas Weidner. Since 1999, it has become one of the most reputable programs of its kind in the world (Google-search Weidner to review his KM contributions to date; compare with other instructors offering KM training.).

4) If a knowledge management certification is not a "KM Institute CKM Program," authorized by the International KM Certification Authority, then it is not the "original." KMI's CKM is constantly updated and improved to reflect the input of our growing CKM Alumni Association.

5) Request that your KM trainer provide proof of CKM classes taught prior to 2004. KM Institute proudly publishes student testimonials and graduate ceremony photos (w/consent) - from the beginning. Check out just a few here!

6) Expect access to customer references, from us or any other training organization. KM Institute grants you unprecendented access to our former students. Therefoe, you gain the benefit of learning about their experiences, first-hand, before you make any decisions concerning your own options.

As a smart consumer, you should expect nothing less from your future KM trainer.

We look forward to seeing you in one of our classrooms soon!

Warm Regards,
The KM Institute
