Knowledge Training

Knowledge Training courses are designed to bridge the knowledge gap between organizations and assessors by providing learning opportunities for individuals to take the same training and exam as the Assessor. Upon successful completion of training, learners will be given an acknowledgement of completion as well as the option to complete the exam and receive a digital badge.
