Financial modelling is a crucial skill for any project development team. It’s central to the decision-making process, and the success of any venture depends on it.

However, due to the detailed nature of cost and revenue drivers, project models can become highly complex. Skill, accuracy and rigour are required if a team is to create scalable, easy to amend financial models, particularly in the final hectic stages of a tender submission. 

The financial modelling courses available from Capital City Training Ltd provide excellent insights into the problems commonly faced by developers, along with comprehensive introductions to the standard models that can be applied to ensure the best possible outcome for the project and the business. 

Our training suite provides a modular and staged approach to modelling training. We begin with courses which focus on key Excel skills and the development of useful building blocks for models, then invite delegates to proceed to our ‘transaction series’ programmes, which are built around hands-on model-building case studies. Everyone who undertakes our financial modelling courses, either in-person or online, will leave with industry-recognised certification and a toolbox of techniques that will help them implement financial models successfully and maintain a high quality of work in their chosen role. 

Who should attend?

Our financial modelling courses will benefit anybody working in finance who wants to improve their knowledge of best-practice techniques. However, they are particularly well suited to: 

  • Financial modellers
  • Project sponsors and advisors
  • Executive level decision-makers wanting to achieve a more robust understanding of the modelling process
