3. Step by step instructional material
Our financial modelling courses will give you step by step course content in a easily readable format with screenshots, diagrams and inbuilt quizzes.
The courses are designed to be navigated at your own pace and content is worded and structured in a friendly and readable format.
At the beginning of each course, you will download an Excel 'model' template which the course will teach you to populate.
Here is a look at the (completed) template from our Primer course:
The courses themselves should take between 20-40 hours to complete each, however some of our students have completed the level 1 course in under 10 hours if they have had experience working in Finance previously or have a natural strength with this sort of knowledge. The length of the courses has been designed to roughly match the length of time you would spend learning a Finance subject at University in Australia, 2 hours of lectures per week for twelve weeks equates to 24 hours, and our course should take roughly the same amount of time.
In both courses you will be taken step-by-step through the model building process with explanations of the accounting concepts and valuation techniques along the way. There is a screenshot after every step as well to help you validate that you have built your model correctly. At the end of the course you submit your model up to our website for checking, and we personally look at all model submissions and either pass you or else provide feedback for any errors made (you get two submissions included with each course purchase, and any additional submissions required cost extra). To date, every one of our students has passed on first submission - the instructions in the courses are quite clear and easy to understand. Also, you can run through the course content as many times as you want prior to submission, which is recommended if you want additional practice.
Once you have signed up we encourage you to contact us via our customer service enquiry form if you have any questions about the course content, and we generally respond to queries within 24 hours.
All our courses are backed by a FinancialModelTraining.com certification.
This certification is a great resume-builder / interview talking point and it really helps our graduates stand out from the crowd.
FinancialModelTraining.com was conceived when Paul Mason realised that demand for the face-to-face financial modelling courses he taught at ANZ were becoming too popular for him to meet demand, and he needed to develop an online offering.
Teaming with Jason Kotchoff (Silicon Valley Entrepreneur), they resolved to develop best of breed internet based financial modelling courses with a highly intuitive interface and engaging content.
In developing the FinancialModelTraining.com courses, Paul has utilised the skills and experience gained from working in Equity Analysis, Distressed Debt and Relationship Banking at multiple Australian banks.
Together Paul and Jason have developed the courses to bring you a user-friendly and comprehensive set of training that is second to none.
