Product Management Level 7, endorsed Certificate of Achievement. Get your career in Product Management off to the strongest possible start, with an endorsed Level 7 Product Management Diploma on your CV! Study from home, with expert tutor support provided from start to finish!

Product Management is an organisational role of unique importance. The product manager is responsible for creating, implementing and overseeing the performance of a company’s product strategy. Rather than playing a hands-on role in the design and manufacture of the product, they instead ensure its successful production, distribution and profitability. Where products of any kind are produced and sold, the input of the project manager is invaluable.

While specific duties vary from on business to the next, the product manager’s role is primarily strategic and analytical. They’re expected to establish a product vision and strategy that’s both unique and workable, define the objective of the project and delegate duties across an extensive team of contributors. They must also ensure that everyone understands their responsibilities, is able to meet strict deadlines and has the resources then need to get the job done. The product manager is expected to provide the kind of leadership that naturally inspires optimal output.

With no deadlines or fixed study schedules, this flexible Level 7 Product Management Diploma is open to ambitious candidates worldwide! Learn how to fulfil an array of key product management duties and take your long-term outlook to the next level!

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
