How do I get this expensed by my Employer?  

Most employers give employees allocated budgets to dedicate to professional development and learning (ask your manager). This course is a perfect candidate. Here is a template email you can use to send to your manager.

Your Role: Product Manager or similar

Hi <Insert Manager Name>,

Developing my technical acumen as a Product Manager is something that is very important to me. I found this online course called, Speaking Technically, which teaches technical concepts for Product Managers. Here are some of the modules:

  • What is an API?
  • What is System Design?
  • Front-end vs. Back-end

I'd love to chat with you about how this directly applies to my professional goals at <Company Name> and whether it can be expensed as part of our professional development programs.

Do you have some time this week to chat about it?

Thanks,

<Your Name>

I found this online course called, Speaking Technically, which teaches technical concepts for non-technical folks. Here are some of the modules:

  • What is an API?
  • What is System Design?
  • Front-end vs. Back-end

I'd love to chat with you about how this directly applies to my professional goals at <Company Name> and whether it can be expensed as part of our professional development programs.
