CILT Key Knowledge Areas
The Key Knowledge Areas (KKA) provide the basis for the educational requirements for Chartered Membership. They describe the subjects, disciplines and tools studied and practised by our Members. They also provide the framework for the design, delivery, and examination of CILT education programs and CILT accreditation of external programs including university degrees.
Graded membership of CILT is dependent on the applicants demonstrating that they meet criteria set and agreed by the International Council of CILT of which the KKA is an important element. Applicants need to demonstrate different levels of knowledge of the KKA – (a) awareness (b) knowledge (c) competence (d) expertise.
