They tell you about it

  • I really liked the exercice part, because it forces you to focus on the theoretical part and immediately challenge themselves on what just learned.

  • I liked that the course explained in a comprehensive way all the aspects we developer should be aware of when working on a Capex-Based project: Financing, risks, contractual...

  • Clear explanation and group work. All of it, very effective to learn from people with direct operational input to link theory to projects.

  • In my opinion the structure of the training was well designed allowing even those who are not familiar with the financial language to understand the concepts involved
