PROJECT FINANCE AND INVESTMENT APPRAISAL COURSE
Who this course is for
This project finance course has been designed to benefit anyone involved in projects or capital expenditure proposals, regardless of how long they’ve been doing it for or at what level. As with all of our courses, the level that this is aimed at can be adapted to suit the roles of the course participants and their requirements.
This course is designed to help participants develop their skills so that they are able to make high-quality, objective decisions regarding project finance proposals and investments. This course can be adapted to suit all levels, roles and needs.
Course cost varies depending on requirements. Training is delivered at your office or your chosen location.
Duration is typically 1-2 days depending on chosen topics.
Fundamental to the success of any project is knowing how to evaluate it from a financial aspect in relation to the impact it will have. The role of managing projects stretches across organisations and often the people involved in creating proposals are experts in their field.
Within this project finance course, we cover the financial evaluation techniques that are a critical part of this decision-making process and consider the costing elements of projects/capex expenditures as well as the financial impact of risks relating to them. Participants will leave this course with their own personal action plan detailing how they will implement their ideas to ensure that their organisation can reap the financial benefits of their new knowledge.
Whilst this knowledge is key, the ability to analyse whether the level of the return on an investment or project is appropriate may require further training to support their proposal and ideas. Given that projects and capital expenditures often consume a significant part of the finances of the organisation, it is essential that those involved in them can make high-quality, objective decisions about which proposals are likely to have the best results, financially and non-financially. This can help prioritise where large investments are made.
We understand that there may be very different roles within your business that require project finance and investment appraisal training. This is why we are happy to tailor our course to your organisation and the specific objectives of course participants – please contact us for more details.

Want to say a massive thank you Helen Howard for enabling me to complete my Finance Training for Non Financial Managers. We covered profit and loss, cash flow, balance sheets, markups and margins, capex, and so much more. Whilst going through the training Helen made everything relevant to real business situations, as well as being made relevant to the company I work at myself. I had lots of opportunities to ask questions and Helen very much allowed us to delve into areas that I specifically wanted to develop and gain more knowledge on. Helen’s delivery was relaxed, clear thinking and straightforward. Her effective communication and approachable manner made my training thoroughly enjoyable throughout. Furthermore, she has made herself available for queries afterwards which is exceptional. I highly recommend Complete Financial Training! Thank you again, Helen.
The course was really beneficial in helping me gain a greater understanding when talking to my colleagues.
I am getting more involved with the financial elements of projects and this has given me far more confidence in that respect. The trainer was very open and approachable.
We engaged with Helen a short while ago, to do some fundamentals in financial awareness. She was fantastic. Her teaching was interactive and very interesting – she made accounting fun! We put some 20 or so people through her training programme and every single one of them was blown away by how easy she managed to highlight the difference between cashflow and the P&L, for example. I would strongly recommend anyone to work with Helen. She is great to work with and makes the training relevant and fun for the team.
Collaborative, engaging, informative, team driven, extremely valuable and a great link between finance and operations.
I now have a better understanding of the impact of setting a business strategy.
Use of real life internal examples was very helpful. Will make loan decisions easier.
Phil quickly understood my own development needs whilst also understanding how they fit into the wider financial context. This was invaluable.
