Prowess Certification FAQs

Why certification?

When building Prowess, our CEO, Ashley Connell, spoke to 100s of returners and hiring managers. The returners asked for one place to upskill in professional & tech skills, BUT also to get a better understanding of their goals & strengths before taking their next career step.  That insight plus the request from hiring managers for a talent vetted process and system is why Prowess created our certification, so that both our talent and customers can be confident in the aptitude and consistency of Prowess project managers.

There is a $350 fee to take the Prowess Certification.  Why?  Because the knowledge you will gain is useful in all professional settings, regardless if you pursue your own career journey or enter the Prowess job pool.  We want to make sure that you have skin in the game and are serious about taking the next steps in your career.  

Not sure you’re ready, join our free Prowess Project Community to get a taste of the content we’ll be sharing. 

The Prowess mission started with a focus on women returning to work but over the last year and a half, our talent pool has expanded to women of all backgrounds looking for empowering work with flexible schedules.  If you resonate with our vision, we welcome you.

Getting started

We understand that you may want ALL the information before pulling the trigger on the Certification. No problem. We have a 2x monthly FREE info call. Sign up for the next one here.  

The Prowess Certification material is a mix of on-demand courses, small group sessions and two live, mandatory cohort meetings: a Welcome Call & Wrap-up Call.  

Attendance on the Welcome Call is required.  If you can not make this cohort Welcome Call, we will add you to list for the following cohort’s Welcome Call. 

We launch one Prowess Certification cohort per month.  The Welcome Call on the second Monday of each month signals the beginning of a new cohort.  See upcoming dates here.

Job pool

No.  Once you complete the certification course you have the option to apply for the Prowess Job pol that helps connect Prowess Pro’s with companies that are looking to hire experienced, vetted candidates for flexible remote roles.   

  • Completion of the Prowess certification course
  • 4 year degree or higher
  • Eligibility to work in the United States

Employment through the Prowess Job Pool is not guaranteed.  Whereas Prowess has a robust team and system to attract employers, we can’t control that the employers’ needs and your schedule, expertise and work-style will be compatible.   

That said, Prowess offers upskilling & networking opportunities well after the Certification concluded to further help you get employed.
