Course Descriptions

Developing a Product Vision & Obtaining Buy-In

To help your organization achieve consistent success, you’ll need more than a dynamite idea. You’ll need a streamlined product management process, one optimized at every stage for efficiency and your market.

This course familiarizes you with product management as a team-first process. You’ll learn product function, and the critical factors that differentiate product management from other technology fields.
You’ll also grow to understand the difference between product management tiers, and how to execute on your vision for a product’s lifecycle.
Often, products are only as successful as the story that surrounds them. Learn to develop a compelling product narrative, one that captures any inspiration behind a product offering and identifies exactly how one or more products address market needs.

Derisking by Product Prototyping

Before you bring any product to market, you’ll likely need to facilitate a design sprint — an accelerated period complete with product prototyping, user testing and optimization as needed.
You’ll learn to run your own design sprint, to lead a team through concise sprint stages in a matter of days. Identify products ripe for a design sprint, storyboard for success and expedite user research groups to greatly improve product offerings in the days before a launch.

Working with Engineers & Designers

Your product team can only operate as well as the engineers, designers and other strategists who make operations possible. This course teaches students how to navigate project management best practices, in ways that allocate responsibilities appropriately across the team.

You’ll learn how to deal with timeline setbacks, while troubleshooting product challenges alongside dedicated product engineers. You’ll learn to collaborate with product designers, in continually improving product aesthetics in ways that excite core target markets.

The faster your team can deliver on design sprints, the faster you can deliver products to customers who need them. That’s why this course also teaches you how to properly balance delegation and personal responsibility. You’ll develop the skills necessary to protect product quality, without sacrificing a leadership-first mindset.

Going Live & Creating a Feedback Loop

Products ready for release require a comprehensive go-live process. You’ll grow to own every stage of your organization’s go-to-market approach for each product, from brainstorming through marketing.

his course also gives students the ability to gather and learn from data analytics, implementing meaningful product changes — with the help of product designers and engineers — based on real user evaluation. You’ll learn best practices for gathering user feedback, and for split testing assets across various market segments.

The Nitty Gritty

Today’s information technology curriculum should do more than introduce learners to popular IT concepts. Each module should better prepare bright students for brighter futures in tech, through modules that overdeliver on their promise to educate and inform.


Our Product Management Technician Certification teaches the IT skills that today’s employers need.
