CRMBase: A San Francisco Based Startup is Training American Workers for Better Jobs

September 01 02:06 2021

CRMBase is a San Francisco-based company that train for jobs that pay over $90,000 within three months. If this sounds too good to be true, it gets better: there is no risk involved. Students do not pay anything until they get their dream jobs. CRMBase is only accepting 10 students for its current batch, and they can apply here (

Training people for the job force of the 21st century is a deeply personal mission for the CRMBase founder Kashif Ali. He moved to San Francisco with only $169 in April 2016 and changed careers from journalism to tech. Within 18 months, he was making well over $100,000 working for the software giant Adobe. In 2020, he left this secure, high-paying job to create pathways to train people for secure and lucrative tech careers.

Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are predicted to transform the workplace, requiring 38.2 million Americans to be retrained by 2030. As a result, the need of the hour is upskilling and reskilling people as quickly as possible for high-paying jobs promising a secure future. Kashif Ali’s CRMBase has filled the gap, offering 3-month CRM training bootcamps encompassing job-readiness training and hands-on learning. The company plans to teach all popular CRMs: Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Adobe Experience Cloud, and HubSpot.

Starting with an exclusive pilot no-code Salesforce Bootcamp ( cohort with only 10 students, CRMBase will have live online classes taught by expert instructors. Students will practice what they learn on the actual Salesforce platform, with the curriculum curated to reflect Salesforce certification requirements. This bootcamp will have no programming modules and the major focus will be on students completing hands-on projects. As a result, not only will the CRMBase bootcamp students be completely job-ready upon graduation, but they can also pass certification exams to boost their salaries.

Mindful of the financial burden of education, the CRMBase Salesforce Bootcamp charges nothing upfront. Students learn for free and only pay back a nominal monthly amount after they get a high-paying job. This means that CRMBase has a vested interest in the students’ success. Only if the bootcamp is successful in imparting useful Salesforce skills will CRMBase earn anything, which is a win-win for the students. The deferred payment is also much lower than what is charged by other bootcamps. CRMBase goes a step further and offers apprenticeship opportunities to graduates, to ease their entry into the job market.

CRMBase Bootcamp vs College Degrees and Self-Paced Learning

So, why is the CRMBase bootcamps the best choice? Organized study material for CRMs is difficult to find for self-study and there is no mentorship for acquiring them. CRMs are also not taught by traditional educational institutes like colleges. The result: a large disparity in what is needed by businesses and what is supplied by the labor market, which leads to high salaries.

CRMBase’s bootcamps have an accelerated time frame of 3 months compared to a 4-year university degree. Students are taught by expert instructors through online classes and the curriculums are updated regularly. More importantly, the focus is developing job-ready skills that are practiced on the actual CRM platform. As opposed to this, college degrees have rigid curriculums, in-person classes, and rely on theoretical teaching methods.

With small classes, one-on-one mentorship, and career support to land a high-paying job upon graduation, CRMBase’s bootcamps are specially designed to help students succeed. College degrees, on the contrary, mean large classes, no individual guidance, and nominal job search resources. Self-paced learning comes in as the last choice since there is no career-focused material and no support whatsoever.

CRMBase is also launching a bootcamp for Digital Marketing to help students master popular digital tools to become successful marketers. Another bootcamp in the pipeline is the Salesforce Developer one, which will train students on how to programmatically customize Salesforce.

CRMs or customer relationship management systems allow businesses to keep track of all customer interactions to improve customer relations and business productivity. With businesses focusing more on customer relations, the CRM industry has exploded, estimated to grow at a CAGR of 15% from 2020-2025. Although more than 1 million CRM jobs are posted annually, the supply of CRM professionals has not kept pace. CRMBase aims to fulfill this shortage of skilled CRM professionals. Since Salesforce is the most popular CRM, CRMBase’s first bootcamp is for Salesforce.

Kashif’s professional journey vouches for the marketability of CRM skills and raises hope for individuals from diverse professions planning to transition into better paying careers. To recap, CRMBase trains students for jobs earning $90,000 or more in 3 months of online, instructor-led classes. Students do not need to learn coding, there is no money commitment upfront, and CRMBase helps students land high-paying jobs. So, what are you waiting for?
