Professional Kanban I Certification
Prove Your Kanban Knowledge and Get Certified
The Professional Kanban level I (PK I) assessment is available to anyone who wishes to validate his or her depth of knowledge of Kanban and its application. Those who pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized PK I Certification to demonstrate their fundamental level of Kanban practitioner knowledge.
Taking a course is not required and if you feel that you already possess a high level of Kanban knowledge, understanding of the Kanban Guide and how to apply Kanban in various contexts, you have the option to take the PK I assessment directly. However, there are courses available to help you prepare for the assessment and gain a stronger understanding of Kanban.

Many questions ask you to think about or interpret the meaning from the Kanban Guide and how you would apply Kanban within various contexts.
To protect the integrity of the certification process, ProKanban.org does not share information about the specific questions that were answered correctly or incorrectly.
