What Is Quickbase University?

If you’re looking for a quick outline of the topics covered in each of the Quickbase University courses—together with an estimate of the maximum time it takes to complete each one—then you’ve come to the right place

Quickbase University, in case you aren’t familiar with it, is the e-learning platform that is bundled free-of-charge with any paid or trial Quickbase subscription. Live training in-person and online is available, and the Quickbase Fundamentals course is always popular at Empower every year.

But with Quickbase University, anyone with access to the platform can take the Fundamentals course or any of the other courses anytime, at their own pace.

As of this writing, there are five courses offered at Quickbase University: Orientation, Fundamental, Intermediate, Advanced, and Account Admin. I couldn’t find anywhere that a quick overview of the topics covered in each course could be found at a glance, so I pulled all the information together myself, and here it is:
