The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course

Early in my career, I wasted months trying to learn more technical skills to break into a technical product role. Despite all of my efforts, I was completely lost because:

  • I lacked a formal background in computer science or software engineering.
  • The courses and bootcamps offered in the tech industry were either too technical and jargon-filled, or lacked the sufficient depth.
  • I wasn’t confident that learning how to code and building a career in software engineering was right for me. Instead, I loved the cross-functional skills that came with technical product management.
  • I didn’t have insider tips nor the right technical resources on how to stand out as a candidate in tech PM interviews

To become more technical, I went down the rabbithole to understand what it takes to build successful tech products from the inside out. I interviewed thought-leaders within the industry. I learned the behaviors and habits of successful technical product managers. Empowered with this knowledge, I received many job interviews at top tier companies and startups.

Within 5 years, I went from a complete newbie to an award-winning Technical Product Manager.

I created the Technical Product Manager course so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that I went through to become more technical and land my first product manager role.

Technical Product Manager was created for aspiring technical product managers or people who want to learn technical skills. In this course, I teach: fundamentals of technical product management, how to create high-performing software products, how to answer technical product manager interview questions and how to stand out in the recruiting process to land a technical product job.

We’ve already soft launched this course to 50 beta students (selected from over 300 closed applications) who have given rave reviews and helped us improve the course with brand new content.


“To be successful as a product manager, you need to learn fundamental technical skills. Over my career, I’ve helped hundreds of people become more technical and break into product management. I’ve compiled everything I’ve learned into this Technical Product Management Certification course to put you on the fast track towards success.”

“Dhaval’s exceptional guidance and knowledge made this the best course that I’ve ever taken on the fundamentals of technical product management and landing a technical product manager job.” – 5/5 stars

Hannah F., Technical PM Student who now works as a Technical Product Manager


“While I started the program with zero experience, I realized learning the fundamental concepts isn’t as insurmountable as I initially expected as long as I put in the effort to learn! This program is the one-stop shop for all technical product management and software development resources.”

Allen W., Business Strategy


“My biggest aha moment was API requests and Javascript overview. It allowed things that didn’t make sense on a day to day at my job now click. It is a great way to fill in the gaps if you are already a PM.” –

Max W., Technical Product Manager


“This program allows me to finally gain a more holistic understanding of the back-end mechanics that are involved when managing software development – resulting in more strategic conversations with technical stakeholders and empowering more informed decision making. The architecture overview was helpful in understanding how all of these processes interact with one another.”

Alexa S., Product Manager


“Technical PM by PMHQ provided just the right amount of detail and insight into how software development works, enhancing my ability to engage with engineers and other stakeholders. For a PM without a technical background, concepts like APIs, servers, and back-end/front-end can feel confusing and overwhelming. But the course provided clear, straight-forward explanations and visuals that really helped me understand the foundations of how software is created and maintained. There were multiple “aha” moments, and I learned concepts that I could immediately apply to be a better PM.”
