College Knowledge Institute (CKI) courses are online. Subjects consist of selective applied sciences courses.

College Knowledge Institute is developed and managed by a team of seven college professors from the Boston, Massachusetts, USA area. They have been working together since 2007 when they started Online Career Advancement (OCA). OCA provides all services for College Knowledge Institute.

How does College Knowledge Institute work?

All College Knowledge Institute courses follow a similar format: about ten multi-part topics consisting of lessons with questions, a final assessment quiz, and links to further resources and references. All course content is continuously updated. An internal messaging system allows participants to maintain contact with the administrator and course facilitators. Important news and updates are available via the calendar and forum.


Upon registration, students are sent enrollment keys for the first series of courses in the program. The key file contains instructions for user account setup and access to the online learning system; generally each course allows one year of access which begins upon entering the enrollment key for that particular course. Students have unlimited access to the program courses. College Knowledge Institute support staff contact students upon registration to ensure that there are no issues with the enrollment process.
