The Fine Print

  • All Consortium Member Benefits are based on Annual Membership (12-month period from renewal date)
  • Benefits which are unused within that 12-month period expire, and do not roll over to the next year of membership.
  • Workshops and engagements are based on availability and need to be organized in advance.  All workshops are intended to be delivered virtually.  In person meetings will incur additional expense. 
  • Benefits are stand alone and cannot be applied to other Consortium offerings. (Member services, Training Offerings such as workshops, online training, unlimited use license, or others).  
  • Member companies that are eligible for the online training benefit and have already purchased the unlimited use license of the KCS v6 Fundamentals Course may exchange the KCS v6 Fundamentals online training benefit for more KCS v6 Fundamentals exams. Digital Transformation and Managing in a Digital Economy courses can not be exchanged for Fundamentals exams.  
  • Online Training is delivered through the Online Learning Center and cannot be customized for individual Member companies as part of the Consortium Member benefit.
