    Question New to contracting - advice on Product Management accreditations

    Hello CUK,

    I am a contractor newbie (6months in). I have 16yrs digital product management/design experience client and agency side but no formal 'accreditations' (just battle scars). Can I get some advice from anyone that has experience with product management accreditations? Are they seen as valuable in the contracting world? If so, which are the most recognised?

    I have seen AIPMM do some, but Google is littered with other providers too...

    99.9% of companies don’t know Product Management certifications exist.

    Solid experience is what’s valued in this area. Push that in your CV and only consider certification if/when clients and agents start asking for them.

    Ditto the above and I would also check what's being asked for in role specs as sometimes they will say "xyz certified" or some such.

    Great news! I read the introductions to some of the accreditations and found that the theory was about 546353737 miles away from reality but I was prepared to suck it up if necessary and try not to

    What a relief!
