Re: CILIP - Is anyone thinking about taking up the KM chartership and what about consultants? #certification #consulting
Stephen and Patrick--
This subject resurfaces regularly. I can share two Linked In articles I posted on certification in KM and why it cannot yet exist. The articles share many of your points.
Training organizations offer “certification” but in reality the “certification” is a certificate demonstrating completion of offered training. While there may be personal value in taking the training it is not certification around a body of knowledge.

I'm very much looking forward to this session. BTW, I ended up re-reading a 2006 article of yours and think it is definitely worth considering to what extent CILIP is or is not a "certification" program, noting the the challenges and goals you outlined so nicely back then.
I have taken the liberty of lightly revising what you wrote to reflect my assessment of our present situation as per the below:
Based on what I know of the CILIP chartership, my assessment is that the focus is primarily on demonstrated skills. There is definitely some intent to test demonstrated attitudes and values as well, but it appears to be neither designed or intended to address the knowledge or aptitude components of a hypothetical "certification".
Having this option still represents a significant leap forward from the status quo of course! However, I am interested to unpack and discuss we can make progress as a community in the other areas as well.
