You know that if you get better at coding, it will make you a more valuable employee. Ongoing training is vital. This article will help you communicate the value of training to your employer.

"Why should we pay for your training?"

Whether they specifically ask it or not, you need to be prepared to answer that question. It is best if you can show specific examples of the value you have already added and where you could add even more value with additional training. Think about it this way: your boss is looking at the training as an investment. They need to know how that investment will bring value to the company. How will investing in your (and your team's) training make the team more efficient, able to upgrade or add new features to the existing applications or maybe enable you to build that new application your team just has not had time to get to.

Bottom line: A boss never pays for training just so you can prepare for your next job. They pay for training to improve what you and the team can do for their company.

Things to Keep in Mind

IAmTimCorey's licensing is only for single-student use. Current licensing does not support purchases with the intent of sharing access to more than the single named student for whom the purchase was made. (This is a generally accepted practice.)

Purchasing individual course(s) grants lifetime access for the named student/individual, so you may want to have the course associated with your personal email address/account. If needed, we can move the course enrollment to the personal account after the purchase. Email help@iamtimcorey.com for assistance.
