How to be a Product Manager from Product Owner? Which certifications or courses can I choose?

I am one of those people who have grown into the role of PM from BA. My two cents are:

1. Looking for courses that can give you a good understanding about product management is important.
- how to build product from scratch
- idea to backlog transformation
- identification of North Star
- understanding of key metrices
- strength of the product and GTM for the product
- strong business and market acumen
- understanding of how agile product management helps in efficient delivery

2. Certification can be at 3 levels
- you can do a PM level certification ( could be any of them )
- domain level certification based on which domain you want to build your competency
- atleast one cloud certification or understanding (Azure, Google cloud, AWS)

Go to YouTube.. there are some good youtubers who can clearly demarcate between a product owner and product manager.

And get a mentor PM. Someone who has been playing the role for at least a few years..
