Product Management Certification

Product management certification

Product management certification is an investment in your career and shows you’re serious about your professional development

The Product Focus certification covers the full range of product management and product marketing disciplines. It focuses on how to apply best practice tools and ideas in real-world situations. It builds confidence and credibility with peers, managers and employers.

Product Management Certification Status

Candidates who pass our exam will become a Product Focus Certified Product Manager.

There is no standard professional certification in product management. Different training companies have their own approach. Ours focusses on what matters to product managers and product marketers – are they able to apply what they’ve learned in realistic situations?

Employers increasingly recognise the qualification and ask us to confirm that potential employees have been certified.

Qualification also means a lot to many product managers.

‘Thank you for your email letting me know I passed the exam. It gave me a big, happy start to my work day! The exam questions really made me think about the answers, and doing that reminded me how much I learnt and enjoyed the training course.’
Trupti Kulkarni, Product Manager, DANTE (now GÉANT)

‘I was up very late finishing my exam and the message was that the results would be sent in three weeks’ time. I was preparing myself to contain the nervous anticipation and so your email today morning was the best start I could ask for! Thank you for your support. Needless to say I am thoroughly satisfied with the entire experience. It was useful, engaging and very efficient!’
Kavya Manjari, Product Focus Certified Product Manager, HTI8

Product Focus Certified Product Managers receive a certificate in the post and are registered by us.

In addition they can use the unique Product Focus Certified Product Manager logo on their email sign-off, LinkedIn profile and professional biography.
