Our World-Class Courses

Being a professional at anything means constantly seeking improvement. Becoming a product professional is no different.

Our training courses have been developed by experienced product professionals who are constantly putting theory into practice. We’ve distilled world-best product practices into easy-to-follow frameworks that have been field-tested and iterated upon.

We’ve adapted our course formats to fit both in-person and online classroom environments, in a live and interactive setting where you will participate with other product professionals dealing with similar challenges.

All of our courses are facilitated by a dedicated trainer using practical activities to put your learning into real-world contexts and practices.

Which course is right for you?

Brainmates training courses are designed to cover the spectrum of experience found in product professionals – whether you’re an individual or part of a larger product team.

Our Foundational courses are ideal for those new to the product arena, those who wish to refresh their skills, and for teams who want to get on the same page.

Our Advanced courses cater for professionals with more experience or who work in a leadership role, while our Skills Uplift courses are targeted to develop specific areas through intensive focus.

3-Day Course

Align your team with effective product-led practices – establishing the common language, thinking and behaviours required to achieve a higher return on your product investment – and embed modern product management practices.

Half A Day Per Week

Gives product leaders and emerging leaders a thorough understanding of best leadership practices in product-led organisations, and develops the skills required to deliver on the business outcomes that product-led practices promise.

Find the right fit

Individuals or small groups will be best served by our
Public Training sessions, while larger product teams
will benefit from tailored Private Training sessions.
Public Training

These sessions are shared with small groups from other organisations, so you can compare different approaches to product challenges and share your learning. The “hands-on” component is centered on fictional organisations and problems.

Private Training

These sessions are exclusive to your organisation, with a dedicated trainer who will consult with you beforehand so that you finish with real-world tangible artefacts to use straight away. The “hands-on” component uses your own products and problems.

Customer Success Stories

Leadership is a journey, not a title. In order to lead people - to inspire, motivate, and align people for effective product development one has to, well, work with complex and diverse people. Brainmates' Accelerating Into Product Leadership (AIPL) focuses on exactly that. The AIPL course has been invaluable for me in growing my skills, and even as it was going I used the tools I learnt and felt the improvement. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who leads people in a capacity that contributes to building products - whether product, technology, or design.
