Product Manager Shoe

Certificate course

Our certificate course offers employees in purchasing and sales of shoe production, supplier companies of the shoe industry or from the shoe retail trade the opportunity to enhance their knowledge in the field of "footwear". Over the span of 8 weeks, our training program provides comprehensive content in the areas of materials, production, product development and quality management.

In response to requests from the industry, we have restructured the product manager course to align with market needs. As a result, we no longer offer modules 1 - 8 as a singular block; instead, each module can now be individually booked based on your specific requirements.

The advantage is obvious: Thanks to the revised structure, the participants are no longer required to complete modules 1 - 8 in a sequential and constrained timeframe. Instead, they have the flexibility to select dates that suit them best. Moreover, attending specific modules based on individual areas of interest is now a viable option.

All completed modules are valid indefinitely and are documented by a certificate of attendance. The IHK certificate Product Manager Shoes (IHK) is awardedto participants after the successful participation in all 8 modules.
