Course Description

In this course, participants will apply their knowledge of project finance, financial analysis fundamentals, and financial risk analysis. They will develop the key PPP financial statements that make up a PPP financial model, including the cash flow statement, profit and loss statement, and balance sheet.

Participants will examine financial statements and their critical inputs. They will also become familiar with the standards for PPP financial modeling used by consultants and advisors to ensure that models are clearly presented, easy to understand, and robust. This practice will enable practical decision-making in PPPs to ensure project financial structures are bankable, affordable, and sustainable.

Through interactive webinars, collaboration, virtual discussion, and self-paced learning, participants will gain knowledge and skills that will enable them to facilitate financial PPP transactions.
