Gaps in the range of Knowledge Management education/ certification?

In the LinkedIn Group of the International Knowledge Management Standards and Accreditation Association (IKMSAA) Matthew L. asks:

Gaps – what gaps do you see in the range of KM education/certification presently available? Here’s my first pass at where I see gaps, tell me if you disagree or where you perceive gaps: Entry Level (0?) – CBT, eLearning, and self-paced study provided by vendors such as SkillSoft, Element K, etc. –> [gap between entry level and in scope, depth]; Commercial KM institutes (1) – Online or brick & mortar training from certification orgs like KMPro, KMI, etc. –> [gap between level 1 and 2 in scope and depth]; Colleges & Universities (2) – Online and/or brick & mortar KM units either built into existing programs such as MBA or as KM-specific associate, bachelor, masters, or even PhD program // Notes: 1. Maybe we need to look at whether there are overlap or gaps between the various degrees and various institutions. Does a Uni Canberra MKM equate with that of Kent, etc? 2. Do we care if there are gaps? Gaps exist between Assoc/Ba/Ma/PhD in many fields, so should we care that there is a jump between what Skillsoft provides and that of KMI or between KMPro and Kent State?
