The Knowledge Translation Professional Certificate (KTPC™) is a 5 day professional development, specifically for knowledge translation (KT) professionals (Knowledge Brokers, KT Specialists, etc.). This educational opportunity is the only course of its kind in North America. The curriculum, presented as a composite of didactic and interactive teaching, focuses on the core competencies of KT work in Canada, as identified by a survey of KT Practitioners (Barwick et al., 2010).

The KTPC course aims to develop the competencies of KT practitioners working across all disciplines. The course invites active participation by employers/mentors to help build organizational culture for KT.

Developed in the Learning Institute at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, KTPC is hosted three times a year. Each session is open to a maximum of fifteen participants. KTPC will be offered February 4th-8th, 2013.
