What's the difference between an Internal and External KCS Certified Trainer?
KCS v6 Trainer certification indicates that a person is certified to teach the Consortium's workshop material, but does not grant access to the materials without a license agreement in place.
Two types of KCS Certified Trainers are available.
(Note: External trainers are licensed to teach anyone, where as internal trainers are licensed only to use the materials with employees of their company)
- KCS Certified External Trainer - two options for those trainers who plan to market and conduct workshops to the public
- KCS Certified Internal Trainer
- Company signs Unlimited Use License Agreement for Internal Use. Trainer is only licensed to train employees of that company. Company pays a one time fee, in lieu of on-going royalty payments per workshop attendee. The trainer only retains their certification and use of the training materials as long as they are employed at that company.
