Product Management and Product Marketing for technology-based products
Comprehensive 3-day course
Product management and product marketing are at the core of any business that sells products. However, their performance is often limited by lack of experience or poor training.
Our 3-day public course addresses this by covering all the key areas of product management and product marketing – focused on technology-based products. It is constantly updated with proven tools and approaches to give you an edge. We specialise in B2B and B2C.
Thousands of delegates have been on our courses and their feedback is invariably excellent. In fact we’re so confident, if you attend our 3-day public course we’ll refund your fee if you don’t think your skills or understanding have improved.
We use Coursecheck to collect feedback from everyone we train on our public courses – see for yourself what delegates say about us.

The option to undertake Product Focus certification is also included in your course fee.
Product Management certification
The certification exam tests your product management knowledge and how you would deal with typical product management and product marketing issues. Successful completion will qualify you as a Product Focus Certified Product Manager. The opportunity to become certified is included in the price of the course but taking the exam is optional.
The exam is taken online. It is a mix of multiple-choice questions and questions that require short written answers.
It is not a memory test so you can use reference materials as you would in real-life. All questions can be answered using the training course notes and Product Focus Journals.
Further details including how to access the exam will be emailed to you at the end of the course. The exam will take around ninety minutes to complete and must be completed within two weeks. We will then mark it and get back to you with a simple pass or fail. If you fail you will be given one more attempt to pass. To preserve the integrity of the exam, the correct answers are not provided.
If you pass you will be sent a certificate and enrolled on our register of Product Focus Certified Product Managers. Click here for more details.
Is there any pre-course work?
There is no set pre-course work but we recommend thinking about what you’d like to get from the course and making a short list of what’s working and what’s not working at your company.
You won’t need your laptop, all the materials are provided – as well as free food and drink.
