The Struggle: Why YOU Should Take This Course?

Early in your career, you can end up wasting months trying to break into a product owner role. Despite all of your hard work, you always feel lost because:

  • You lack a formal background or experience in project management, computer science, or software engineering.
  • You aren’t confident that learning how to code and building a career in software engineering is right for you. Instead, you love the cross-functional skills of being a product owner.
  • You aren’t sure if you want to spend 100% of your time in a customer-facing or a sales role. You want a hybrid role that includes the best of both worlds.
  • The courses and bootcamps offered in the tech industry are either too technical and jargon-filled or lack sufficient depth.
  • You don’t have insider tips or the right resources to stand out as a candidate in Product Owner interviews.

The PMHQ Product Owner Certification Course appeals to aspiring product owners or existing product owners who want to broaden their knowledge of product ownership. Learn the fundamentals of agile product management, how to create your business model, how to validate your ideas, scrum foundations, team dynamics, stakeholder management, how to answer product owner interview questions, and how to stand out in the recruiting process to land a product owner job.

Product HQ is an independent PM community and certification center. Our community consists of some of the best established and upcoming product managers from around the world.

+ - What are product management certification courses?

Product management certifications are credentials given to candidates who successfully complete a product management course with the knowledge of what product management is, the prime principles and practices of product management, and their implementation. Unfortunately, there was a clear lack of bona fide certification in the product management sphere, especially when it came to providing vocational training on how to operate as a modern product manager.

+ - How much does a product owner make a year?

According to June 2022 Glassdoor report, the average yearly salary of a product manager is $107,206.
There are a series of factors that influence the exact amount that a product owner earns. These include the specific salary package at a company, the professional’s level of experience, and their academic qualifications.
Product owners with a product management certificate such as PMHQ’s Product Owner Certification have a greater chance to reach or exceed the national average salary.

+ - How long does it take to complete PMHQ Certification courses?

Just like all of PMHQ’s courses, there is no set timeline or deadline to finish the course. Candidates are free to learn at their own pace.
