Gain knowledge

Hello!

I'm welcoming any advice for this:
It is about the knowledge that a "product manager" gets through the time and his work about the product he is specialized on.

I'm hesitating between : to gain; achieve or acquire a knowledge?
I think that achieve is a bit irrelevent in this context..?!?
Aquire, not so sure but I saw the expression "knowledge aquirement" here in WR, so why not?!?
Gain seems to sound the right one...
And then I saw "to attain a knowledge" in one of the discussions under "knowledge"...
Could you please tell me if my deductions are right and which one would you use?
Thanks a lot!

    i would say: to gain/acquire/develop an understanding of something, or to improve one's knowledge of something

    oups... that's what I have written first, but then my sentence continues with "...to understand its environment.." and when I read it, I started looking for a synonime and "knowledge" came up :)
    Do you think that gain/acquire a knowledge can not at all be used together and I should turn my sentence in a different way?

    hmm...I haven't thought about the nuance in the meaning, with and without the "a"... ;)
    I'll go for this one!
    Thanks a lot sopheebs :)
