Blackblot Content Retention Tool™

Classroom training is a personal experience and an important source of knowledge and materials, but the learning process is not over once the course is over.

Blackblot Content Retention Tool™ (CRT) promotes post-training content retention and helps product managers and product marketers to further deepen their knowledge. These tools challenge individuals with a series of multiple-choice questions, which are based on Blackblot PMTK Book chapters and Powered by Blackblot™ Knowledge Base articles that support a specific topic in the Blackblot Strategic Product Management™ training program and the Blackblot Product Management Professional™ certification program.
