Project Finance

This 3 day project finance course provides the opportunity for delegates to improve their understanding of project finance deals.


Working in Excel with real project finance models is a key learning tool on this training course. The course is conducted in a work shop format, with the emphasis on “learning by doing”.

Delegates “build up” a project finance model and a full cash flow forecast for a project. Course attendees consider the impact of a change in project parameters. Delegates analyse how the project performs and how key financial ratios and bank covenant tests respond with a change in circumstances.

Throughout the course plenty of guidance and assistance is given by the course instructor. All FTA trainers are experienced corporate financial advisers who guide delegates stage by stage through a series of real-life exercises.


At the end of the course attendees will have a record of their own work and a permanent record of the steps they have taken to create their own project finance model. Attendees will depart the course understanding:

  • The role of the project model
  • Links to legal documentation
  • Good model structure and design
  • The steps to take to build up a project finance model
  • How to develop key outputs, iterating with assumptions to optimise the model against its results
  • Guidelines for good modelling practice.

This course is designed to provide delegates with the tools needed to continue with efforts to analyse and model project finance deals on immediate return to the workplace.
