Meet Your Instructor

Mario Gerard

I am a Principal Technical Program Manager and have been in the tech industry for over 14 years. I have switched careers from sales to SDE, SDE to Program Management and from PM to TPM. This puts me in a position where I really understand what each of these roles entails and what you need to succeed in cracking interviews and excelling at your job. I am well versed in what it takes to get offers at tech companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, etc.

I am an active blogger and podcast host. I have evaluated/interviewed over 1000 TPMs and have a good understanding of what most organizations look for when they hire TPMs.
My courses are designed both aspirants as well as experienced and as well as aspirant Technical Program Managers (TPM).

Here's What Others Are Saying

Mario did a great job laying out skills required of TPMs, TPMs by domain/by scope, and career progression for TPMs (and how to get there).

This short course will be invaluable to our organization.

- Marie Smirnoff

This is a phenomenal course to get an overview of the evolving TPM role, as well as understand some of the responsibilities of a TPM.
The different examples of technical domains and scenarios throughout the course were refreshing, and helped relate where TPMs play a big part in an organization’s strategy.
Lastly, this course also serves as a good career reference guide for a TPM starting their career or a classic project manager.
Overall I enjoyed this very much. Thank you.
