Tell me more about linking training to the Core Knowledge Categories (CKC)
One requirement for training is it must be linked to a Core Knowledge Category.
Training can be linked to the CKC by reviewing the Core Body of Knowledge document. In the CKC look for descriptions that match either the title of a class or connect to the class description. The core knowledge category will be verified after you submit your training.
