The Indonesian National Kris Secretariat (INKS) has established a certification scheme for practitioners to receive certificates from the Ministry of Labour and Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology (administered by INKS with external assessment) which can be equivalent to a high school diploma, bachelors or masters degree. For this purpose, 29 different aspects of the element (crafts skills, decorative arts, iron work, etc.) have been recognized. This is an extremely important recognition of their expertise for practitioners without formal qualifications. The culture of Kris has grown. It started with 6 local associations and there are now 200 across 16 provinces.
