Purpose and scope

The EuKTS Certification Scheme is unique in the KTT sector as it covers
  • the complete career path of practitioners in the field by providing three different certification levels, starting from practitioners just entering or interested in the profession, to the most experienced and skilled professionals,
  • both private and public areas of practise of KTT, thus contributing to a common understanding and vision,
  • a scheme integrating professional certification with high quality education and training.

Certification by Exam Route

The target EuKTS certification scheme is to provide a complete set of exams at each level of experience of knowledge and technology transfer practitioners.

  • Certification at Basic level provides certified practitioners with the title of “EuKTS Associate”.
  • Certification at Intermediate level provides certified practitioners with the title of “EuKTS Professional”.
  • Certification at Advanced level provides certified practitioners with the title of “EuKTS Expert”.

EuKTS believes that it is importante to closely relate the basic level certification to accreditation, to ensure that the best competence is available from the very beginning of the career: the better skilled the newcomers and juniors KTT managers are, the higher the average level of the whole profession develops.

This is why certification by exam is available at the basic level via the accreditation process : training providers who run an course accredited by EuKTS for the basic level are entitled to deliver the certification. 

The Exam route certification for the intermediate and advanced levels will be developed at mid-term.
 

    Certification by Grandfathering Route

    In order to accelerate the development of a network of recognised professionals, of the knowledge and technology transfer, EuKTS has established Grandfathering procedures for each of the three levels: Associate, Professional, Expert.

    The criteria for admittance are stricter than the regular admittance criteria because there is no exam required. Criteria of certification by the Grandfathering Route are established by the Certification Committee under supervision of the Board of EuKTS.
