Make sure you don’t come across as difficult because then word may get around and people won’t want to work with you (especially assuming it’s your first couple years with the company)? Not saying it’s fair, but have seen it happen. Can you give some context on the situation?

Is the official stance that the company does not want to lose talent for people getting License A, or is it solely your managers opinion or you’re guessing that’s what the company thinks? If it’s the former GTFO the company, if it’s the latter then you can prob come up with a business case for it, or say you plan to take B after A.

License B is part of license A. In my opinion it is a joke and waste of time to just get B.

When do you have to decide by? I would scout out a new role and then have the convo so I’m ready to walk if they don’t stick to the original plan.
