Official KCS Academy training and certification exam
Knowledge-Centered Service, or KCS®, is a methodology that integrates the creation and maintenance of knowledge into the problem-solving process. If you are after an improved support center efficiency, reduction in time to proficiency, being able to identify areas for business improvements, and an increase in customer success with self-service, this intensive workshop will provide you with the needed insights and skills. While this workshop will prepare you for the v6 Practices certification exam, the exam may or may not be included in the agenda.
Don’t miss this opportunity! For each attendee your organization register to the workshop, you will get 20% discount of KCS Assessment. This means that if you register 5 attendees, you will get the KCS Assessment for free.
