I have been working as a web developer in an agency for the past 5 years but am looking towards getting more into product management. Any tips or guidance?

There are product management courses online (in Australia, RMIT uni) and some MOOCs (Coursera).
Also ask to participate to product development meetings, and start observing and learning.
But overall, announce your intentions to your company and see if they would help you to pursue your goals.
If they don't, it might be time to seek another opportunity elsewhere

Awesome point! I could try and bring this up but we don't deal with many product type projects!

Certifications are usually a good route, and might be worth looking for part-time work to help make the transition easier?

People who are more asexual/aromantic, how do you explain it to people? People always ask if I’m LGB and I just respond that I’m none of the above. When I was in college, I knew I wasn’t hetero, but I wasn’t sure what I was. So I just did what everyone else did. Years later, I realized that I’m asexual but people hear things about me from my past and ask if I’m LGB. Do you just say you’re LGB and move on? I don’t feel like giving a 30 minute lecture every time someone asks.

But when I saw the outline for the CFF material and there seems to be a lot of topics so I was wondering if the review course was sufficient considering this exam is also multiple choice. Thanks!
