Certified Product Innovation Associate - CPIA
The Certified Product Innovation Associate (CPIA) credential product managers, and product owners, and innovation professionals an opportunity to demonstrate a core understanding of key practices and mindsets related to product innovation and development.
Earn a CPIA certification
The Certified Product Innovation Associate certification is earned by those that complete individual training workshops on Beyond User Stories, Prioritization Techniques, or Product Journey Mapping.
Upon completion of the workshop and all the exercises, the participants earn a CPIA certification.
Each of the CPIA workshops is a highly participatory and hands-on class experience where participants learn a specific practice that drives product innovation and development, including:
- Beyond User Stories
- Prioritization techniques
- Product journey mapping
We believe that real learning comes in three ways: a great training program, shared experiences with other participants, and hands-on practice. This is why we deliver this class with a live trainer, so that you can take full advantage of a rich and deep learning experience.
At the end of the workshop, upon successful completion of all exercises, participants earn a Certified Product Innovation Associate (CPIA) certification focused on the key practice learned in the workshop. This certification validates their participation to the class and the learning of foundational practices and mindset.
There is no exam. The class is designed to be highly experiential as we believe that real learning comes from experience, not from passive studying of concepts. However, students are required to complete the workshop and actively participate in all exercises in order to earn the CPIA certification.
