Product Management abilities are some of the most in demand skills product and technology companies are looking for. However, comprehensive and real-world training options are either very expensive or very hard to find.
The good news is that Advancing Women in Product (AWIP), a not for profit organization, partnered with Amazon Web Service to offer a set of comprehensive product management training offerings.
"Learners who diligently complete all 19 projects, regardless of their background, will have completed the type of work entry-level project managers at big tech companies also perform, which might help level the playing field,"
Nancy Wang, CEO of AWIP, Head of Data Protection at Amazon Web Services
The product management offering consists of four Coursera courses which can be audited for free.
Learners will explore topics including business, design, software engineering, data science, AI/ML, and soft skills. They will also review real interview questions asked by PMs from employers including Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft. This foundational-level series uses video lectures, hands-on exercise guides, demonstrations, and quizzes. It’s available to audit for free, or you can take the series and receive an optional completion certificate with a 49 USD monthly subscription to Coursera.
