Breaking into Product Management is hard—keeping the job is even harder. We designed our certification to give you the support you’ll need to get on the field and quickly put points on the board. Led by top PMs from leading Silicon Valley companies, this widely recognized Product Manager Certification teaches you how to succeed: Learn to build products end to end and get the hands-on experience you need to be a great PM. Along the way, you’ll get all the mentoring, resume prep, and mock interviews you’ll need to land your dream job.
Once you decide to enroll—smart move, by the way—here’s what happens: You choose the course that works for you, full-time intensive or part-time, with blended learning options. Then, you enroll on our site. Next, you’ll complete the enrollment form and get the info you need to get started. At any point, if you need help, our admissions team is here to help guide you.
Once you’re in, you’ll get access to a ton of resources for your course, including topic introductions, on-demand videos from instructors, free PM tools, templates, and a student forum where you can discuss course topics with classmates. If you take the blended learning approach, you’ll do pre-reading before each class to make your instructor’s lecture a more interactive, Q&A–style experience.
Each class features live, online lectures on that session’s topic, with takeaways, Q&A, and group activities to give you hands-on experience. You’ll also get extra support with career coaching from industry experts, where you can practice for your next job interview and sharpen your resume.
For your last session, you’ll apply everything you’ve learned for your final project, a product presentation demonstrating your new skills. And this isn’t just a class project: It’s a compelling portfolio piece to share with future employers.
Once you complete the course, you can sign up to take the exam. This online test is overseen by a third party, and you’ll have 90 minutes to answer 50 questions. Pass it, and congrats! You’re a certified Product Manager. Find more details here.
The first step in building amazing products is to gain a deeper insight into the role of Product Manager. Learn how digital products are built, what is expected of you as a PM, and how to excel in this rewarding (and well-compensated!) career.
All great PMs know how to get into the heads of their customers. You will, too: Learn how to create personas, use cases, and customer journeys that deliver insight. Navigate Product–Market Fit and leverage research with Sprig and AB Tasty to find the best solutions.
Now that you have an idea of what the product should do, this is where you’ll learn to get everyone on the same page. Master the tools and communication strategy you need to succeed, including how to establish clear objectives, and map out how to achieve them.
Learn to create an inspiring user experience (UX) with Figma, and collaborate effectively with UX designers and Software Engineers. Gain insight into how software is developed—and all the lingo that goes along with it. Then, learn to execute like a pro and drive development with the product roadmap.
Now that we’ve built our product, you’ll learn how to launch and market it with an effective Go to Market (GTM) plan. We’ll show you how to identify insights from analytics with Mixpanel, analyze growth with Gainsight, and experiment with AB Tasty to ensure the product achieves the outcomes your organization depends on.
With your experience and newly acquired skills, we’ll show you how to put your best foot forward and make the transition into Product Management with an effective resume. Communication skills are essential, so you’ll learn how to answer interview questions, deliver a great product presentation, and land your first PM job with confidence.
