The Product Owner certification course teaches the fundamentals of the product owner role, product own job description, and interview process.
"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."
"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."

Product owner certifications are credentials given to individuals who successfully complete a product owner course and pass the certification exam. Courses tend to cover the concept of product ownership, how to engage with stakeholders, how to administer product development, and how to launch products. There are a few variations of product owner certifications. Product Manager HQ features the One Week Product Owner Certification - designed to provide all the theoretical knowledge, while also teaching software product roadmap development and strategic management techniques.
According to Salary.com, the average product owner salary in the United States is $106,866, with a range that falls between $97,900 and $115,800. However, the actual PO professional salary may differ from this average estimate, based on factors such as education, certifications, additional skills, years of experience, and the company that is hiring. Product owners with certificates, such as the ones offered by PMHQ, usually have a greater chance to reach or exceed the national average salary.
Although the Product Owner Certification course doesn't have any prerequisites, we recommend it for individuals with at least basic knowledge in the product industry. If you are transitioning from a different department, or need foundational knowledge, we recommend going for the regular One Week Product Owner Certification course first.
Once you complete one of the courses and receive the certification, you will be given a unique URL that leads to a PMHQ verification source. You can share this link with current or future employers, the Linkedin community, team members, or any other concerned party.

This certification course teaches how to create an Agile product roadmap, deliver complex products, conduct meetings before, during, and after sprints, and more. It helps professionals to master all pillars of product ownership.
The Product Owner Certification course is self-paced but tends to take seven days to be completed. The courses require professionals to spend 30 minutes to an hour every day to complete. This daily commitment is to complete each course itself, as well as the practical project.
Some institutions that offer certifications require that you keep earning credits and that require you renew your certification every two years if you want to keep it valid. Different from these other certifications, PMHQ is a one-time course to help you boost your career.
