Product Writing Certification

Become a Certified Product Writer

The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course

Early in my career, I wasted months trying to learn more skills to convey my product ideas to engineers and stakeholders. Despite all of my efforts, I was completely lost because:

  • I lacked a formal background in documenting processes
  • The courses and boot camps offered in the product industry didn't focus on writing
  • I didn't have insider tips or the right resources on how to create great documentation

To get better writing skills, I went down the rabbit hole to understand what it takes to build successful documentation from the inside out. I interviewed thought leaders within the industry. I learned the behaviors and habits of successful technical writers and product pros. Moreover, I build an entire software company that helps professionals document processes better.

Today, I'm an award-winning Technical Writer and Product Manager, and my technical writing has been read by over 1 billion people.

I created the Product Writing Certification Course with instructor feedback so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that I went through to become a better product communicator.

PHQ's Product Writing Certification Course was created for anyone who wants to improve their communication skills when it comes to getting buy-in on their product ideas. If you want to lead as a product manager, then you need great writing skills.

“The capstone will make a great addition to my writing portfolio. I didn’t realize how much experience companies expect with technical communication, so having the writing samples and insight from this course helps A TON as someone with only one year of full-time work experience. You guys nailed it.”

- Edina Kremic, Project Manager

"The videos are informative and the homework makes sure you put the theory into practice. The most valuable part in my opinion is the capstone project. The detailed feedback was invaluable." - 5/5 Stars

- Emily Martolini

"I took Josh's course, did the capstone project, and became certified in August. I've recently been offered a job as a Technical Writer for Amazon at $150k per year! I used my capstone project when they asked me for writing samples."

- Henry Fuse

"Thank you for taking the time to review my work and for the constructive feedback, really appreciate it. And thank you for this great course, I will be referencing it often for sure."
