KCS v6 Fundamentals Certification

The KCS v6 Fundamentals certification is intended for individuals who are using the KCS Practices in support centers and service desks to resolve issues for customers and end users.

The degree to which knowledge workers understand the benefits of KCS, how it works, and what’s in it for them, has a huge impact on the organization’s ability to realize the benefits of the methodology.

This entry-level KCS certification is a great way to ensure a common understanding of the methodology across large or distributed groups of knowledge workers.

Full program details are available in the KCS v6 Fundamentals Certification Instructions.  To prepare for this certification, an interactive online training course is available here for a separate fee. This course is self-paced and is typically completed within 60-90 minutes.
