The third blog in our Certification Series, Quickbase University’s Peter Goldstein talks about a new program that lets you earn Qualification Badges as you learn about the Quickbase platform.
With all the personal and professional advantages that Quickbase certification brings, it’s certainly an asset worth aspiring to on your educational journey. And Quickbase University can help you get there. We offer something for everyone who builds and uses Quickbase tools—whether you’re just getting started, in the middle of creating an app and want to quickly learn how to add specific functionality, or preparing for full certification.
The latest offering in our expanding roster of educational and profile-raising opportunities is our Qualification Badge program. It’s intended to foster continued learning and is designed to fit conveniently into your schedule, with each course broken down into individual components that can be consumed as you have time. Taking advantage of the program will help you:
- Better understand and leverage the Quickbase platform and what it can do.
- Increase app building capabilities and confidence by broadening your skill set.
- Get verifiable credentials for completing training in specific areas of study.
All can be great catalysts for higher job satisfaction and professional advancement in the form of interesting new projects, more recognition, promotions, and greater marketability.
The Qualification Badge program, as we continue to roll it out, will center around different subsets of training found in our more comprehensive and exam-based Quickbase App Builder, Expert App Builder, and Combined Builder/Expert Certification programs. It will offer an incremental way to promote your new app building skills and endorse your problem-solving value, as well as help you gain the level of expertise needed for certification.
What Qualification Badges are Now Available?
Currently there are two Qualification Badges in the program: Quickbase User and Account Admin. Several more badges are on the way to recognize skills in reporting and notifications & subscriptions.
If you’re a new app builder, the Quickbase User Qualification Badge will help you get onboard fast. To earn it, you must complete the following series of courses:
- O01: Getting to know Quickbase – Welcome to Your Orientation!

If you’re currently managing your Quickbase account, or planning to take on this role, this coursework is for you. To earn the Quickbase Account Admin Qualification Badge, you must complete the following two courses:
To claim a badge, you must register for the related Qualification Badge course. An automatic check will confirm that all prerequisites courses are completed, and once they are, the badge will be issued immediately (no exam required). A confirmation and link to your badge will be sent to your email address. And just like Certification Badges, Qualification Badges can be printed, downloaded, and shared on social media such as LinkedIn. You can also access your badges within your Quickbase University profile.
Verifiable Credentials: Your Ticket to Advancement
Whether you earn badges as an employee, vendor, or client, having verifiable credentials these days is becoming an industry standard (as seen, for example, with Salesforce, IBM, Microsoft, and Adobe badging programs). Quickbase University is answering the call to help our community promote their skills and expertise by endorsing Qualification Badges and Certification programs of our own.
Quickbase University eLearning courses, including the Qualification Badge program, are included in your Quickbase subscription. Those who sign up for a 30 day trial can also take advantage of Quickbase University training to earn both Quickbase User and Account Admin Badges.
