About Engineering Leadership Certification

Many engineering managers have indicated that they didn’t receive sufficient training when they transitioned from being an engineer to a manager of engineers. What if you could design your teams as effectively as you could design your code? What might be possible?

This course aims to not only address the specific needs of new or aspiring managers of tech teams, but to organize a network of technical leaders in Mexico who can empathize with shared challenges and facilitate learning through peer coaching.


Participants should be new to management, current team leads, or aspiring to be a manager of engineers or other technical professionals.
