No matter what projects you’re overseeing, strengthening your financial skills can help you become more effective in your current role or add value to improve your career prospects. Project managers and engineers need to be financially literate. They need not be experts, but need to be able to interpret figures and understand what lies behind them. Managing money is an important measure of project success. Whether your dream is protecting your assets in a turbulent market or growing your wealth so that you can retire in style, this course is the blueprint.

This course focuses on the strategic issues – what figures reveal about the drivers of business and what they reveal about the day-to-day issues that accountants bother you with. The course will enhance your understanding of finance and of the accounting issues which affect your projects, production and technical areas of business.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
