The AIPMM Certified Product Manager

Product management is the function responsible for championing new and existing products throughout the product lifecycle. It is the ‘go-to’ function that orchestrates various activities and insures the best possible outcome for a product and business. It is a challenging and rewarding field and how it’s executed is key to the product managers’ own success and that of their organisation.

Since its introduction, the Certified Product Manager credentials (CPM) have come to represent an individual’s agreement to adhere to standards of excellence and a way to demonstrate a commitment to the career. Amid the clutter of credentials and certificates that abound in the field, the rigorous competency and practice standards met by those who have qualified with CPM credentials, allows them to stand out from the crowd with the highest certification standard.

AIPMM Product Management Certification differs from an educational or methodology designation in that it is based upon global best practices that have been determined through investigations, research and analysis of actual practitioners in the field. The curriculum is under constant assessment to ensure that it remains relevant and evolves with the profession.
