Knowledge Management certifications recommendations for international development folks
Carolina Ravinskas is asking this question in the KM for development (KM4Dev) discussion group.
I am relatively new to the KM4Dev space, but I am very grateful to be part of such an insightful community! I was wondering if anyone has gone through the Certified Knowledge Manager (CKM) programs offered through either KMPro or KM Institute. I looked through the “alumni” lists for both of these programs and saw a fair number of international development organizations listed. For those of you who have obtained certification, did you go through these programs? Do you believe these programs were useful to your KM career and do you recommend them? If not, are there other KM professional development opportunities you would suggest? The organization I work for is willing to fund professional development opportunities, but of course, there is a budget and I would like to ensure I research all possibilities before making a selection.
Thank you in advance for your help with this!
