How to expense Maven courses

Many companies offer an L&D or education budget that covers the cost of our courses. Follow the steps below to get a course reimbursed.

Get reimbursed for Measuring Development Team Performance

Step one

Give your manager a heads up

Let your manager know you’re interested in a course that will improve your work. Ask if you can send them details over email.

Hey {manager}, I saw a course on Maven called Measuring Development Team Performance and think it would be useful for my work. Mind if I send you the details?

Step two

Make your case

Share how the course aligns with your role and professional goals. Use the template below and tweak it as needed:

Hey {manager},

There's a course called Measuring Development Team Performance that I'd love to enroll in. It's a live, online course with peers who are in similar roles as me, and it's run on Maven, where thousands of learners from companies like Meta, Google, Airbnb, and NASA have leveled up.

A few highlights:

  • Direct access to Laura Tacho, VP of Engineering and Software Engineering Leadership Coach, the expert instructor teaching the course

  • Latest thinking and strategies in the space

  • Collaborative hands-on working sessions to test new tactics and ideas

After I take the course, I'm happy to summarize and present my learnings to the team. I'll be able to apply a lot of what I learn immediately.

The course costs €695 EUR. If you like, you can review course details here, including the instructor’s bio:

P.S. Should we invite other members of our team and take it together?

Step three

Follow up with your manager

If you don’t hear back, follow up again after 3 days to show your commitment and interest. Here’s an example you can use:

Hey {manager},

Have you had a chance to look at the Maven course I sent you? It looks like seats are filling up and I'd love to grab a spot before it sells out.

I really believe it would help us level up with:

  • Outcome A

  • Outcome B

  • Outcome C

Let me know.

Enjoy the course!
