Blackblot Certification Program Benefits

Product management has reached relative maturity and acceptance as an evolving art and science, but with relatively limited subject matter consolidation and opportunities at certifying expertise.  With over a decade of focused experience in providing technology product management services, Blackblot has the reputation, knowledge and expertise to offer a credible certification.

The Blackblot Product Management Professional™ (BPMP) certification program tests an individual on the level of knowledge they have regarding a defined set of best practices and proven methods of performing specific tasks in product management, as taught by Blackblot.  The BPMP certification program allows an individual to display a competency level in a narrowly defined sub-domain of product management.

The following table summarizes the Blackblot BPMP certification program's key features and benefits.
