Authorised training courses
Our 3-day Product Management and Product Marketing for technology-based products training course is authorised for certification. Anyone who attends our public 3-day course is automatically eligible to take the exam free of charge. Many of our private training courses are also authorised for certification although there may be a charge to take the exam. If you are uncertain, please get in touch.
All the material in the exam is covered in our 3-day course and Product Management Journals. The exam is taken online after the course has finished. It is open-book so you can use your course notes and the Journals as reference material.
After the course you will be emailed a unique code to access the exam. It should take about 90 minutes to complete. You can undertake the exam at your convenience but it must be completed by the end of the month.
Marking the exam can take up to 2 weeks and candidates will be emailed their result. If you fail you will be allowed to re-take the exam free of charge one additional time.
