You’re looking forward to becoming Quickbase Certified and have registered for the exam, but your biggest obstacle is finding time to study and prepare when your days are already full.

Below is a great sample letter to help you make a case to your manager for carving out time during the day for your certification studies. It also highlights what kind of returns an investment in certification can provide to the business. The letter is offered in both Microsoft Word and .PDF formats for your convenience.


I’m writing to ask for your approval to spend [X] hours a week for [X] weeks to pursue my Quickbase [App Builder, Expert Builder, Combined Builder/Expert] Certification.

Getting Quickbase Certified will help me benefit our [team/division] by:

  • Delivering faster and better than ever with Quickbase. By preparing for my exam I’ll be broadening my skills with Quickbase University’s comprehensive training and best practices curriculum. It will help enable me to build powerful apps better and more effectively for our [team/division] and potentially others as well.
  • Staying abreast of new Quickbase features and functionality. The Quickbase team is rolling out new features and functionality at a rapid pace. I will have the opportunity to learn and leverage the latest Quickbase enhancements—from easily automating more of our workflows to seamlessly controlling and distributing more of our data.
  • Getting more fired up than ever! As a company, we’ve made an investment in Quickbase. Allowing me to invest some of my workday to become certified will help us gain even more dividends from the platform. My expanded knowledge of Quickbase will help me build and evolve our apps to better meet our goals as a [team/department] and contribute more to the success of the organization.

The best part is I get full access to all of the Quickbase University courses and one attempt to pass the exam as part of our Quickbase subscription. Future attempts are offered for $99. You can learn more about more about the Quickbase Certification program here.

Thank you for reviewing my request.

Best regards,
