The AIPMM provides on-going education, resources, and certification credentials for professionals seeking knowledge necessary to guide their products throughout the entire product lifecycle and advance their professional careers."
During lunch at Rocky Mountain Product Camp, participants will have the opportunity to discuss AIPMM certification credential opportunities and learn about the special RMPCamp discounts for the virtual online study group in preparation for the Certified Innovation Leader (CIL) exam.
ProductCamps are a worldwide movement of innovative, user-generated "unconferences"

McAllister and Jama Bradley, Ph.D., of Product Innovation Educators, are excited to discuss the Certified Innovation Leader (CIL) Virtual Online Study Group Program as well as other AIPMM certifications and the CSU-Global Campus' Applied Business Management graduate course, which was developed with assistance from the AIPMM to prepare individuals for the Certified Innovation Leader® (CIL) exam.
