TKGA Certification programs are the gold standard in knitting. These courses, which include the Master Hand Knitting Program, are where you can learn the skills to be successful in the knitting industry.

The Master Hand Knitting Program is the cornerstone of all our programs. This program is designed as an educational process for those knitters who want to improve their skills. It is a rigorous program meant to challenge all knitters to learn and grow.

Volunteers review your work and provide detailed feedback to enable you to improve. To receive certification you will have shown mastery in basic to advanced knitting techniques and the ability to research and learn new techniques.

The title of Certified Master Knitter is respected throughout the knitting industry.

In addition to the Master Hand Knitting Program, we offer four specialized Certification courses that give you the skills needed for success in the knitting industry. These include Technical Editing, Judging, Instruction, Knitwear Designing, and Professional Knitting.
