There are 2 owners in my business. Can both of us take the Pro Adviser exam for free or are the training and tests only available for one of us?


The Pro Advisor certification is per individual. For a QBOA account with team members it is only for the lead team member but each team member can sign up for a free Pro Advisor membership and then take their own exam. The key would be to not add the second owner as a team member until after they have accessed their own QBOA and Pro Advisor program. Team or staff members themselves cannot take the exam from within the company account (at this time), it is only for the named account holder (by email). And inviting new staff or team members does not grant them automatically their own QBOA account separate from the company. Hope this helps and good luck to both of you as you each take your own exams. (there is no proctoring, you can sit side by side and look at each other's tests and collaborate on answers and we won't tell, lol)

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
