Practical Project Finance

Practical Project Finance is an intensive blended learning programme designed to accelerate the training of project finance practitioners.


Please get in contact to arrange a discounted rate for multiple participant bookings.

This programme will equip you with a practical project finance “toolbox” you can apply to almost any transaction which arrives on your desk.

We assume little or no prior knowledge so the course works well for complete beginners, but it will also benefit those who have been working in the sector for a few years.

The toolbox has three parts:

  • Toolbox Part 1 – Project Risk Analysis, Mitigation & Allocation;
  • Toolbox Part 2 – Debt Sizing & Structuring;
  • Toolbox Part 3 – Project Finance Loan Documentation.

The course has a clear, effective structure and uses diagrams and checklists to allow you to absorb information quickly. It has been designed by practitioners for practitioners. It is modular, with 10 modules in total, each of which has a workbook. These workbooks build into a project finance manual, which we are sure you will come back to time after time in your work. Each module also has videos for you to view and a quiz to allow you to test your new skills. We use a detailed and very realistic case study to reinforce what you have learned and to tie together the three parts of the toolbox.

You can study this course as an individual, working at your own pace and fitting in your study around your other commitments.

CCC Training is also happy to tailor Practical Project Finance to the needs of a group of trainees from a single organisation. In such cases we usually release the modules at regular intervals in line with a schedule agreed with the client – typically one module every two weeks. Whether you are working alone or as a group your personal study will be supported by at least four live online seminars with one or more of the CCC Training team. Together we bring more than a hundred years of project finance experience to the table. We also have different and complementary skill-sets, meaning that we can offer a richer and more varied range of  content than single trainers are able to do.

Like many other project financiers, we gained our skills by “doing”. This can be very effective – but sometimes progress is slow. It can also be limited in terms of the exposure it provides to different sectors and types of transaction. Practical Project Finance is designed by practitioners for practitioners. It is designed to provide you with the full set of skills you will need to be a properly-equipped player in this area and to do that much more quickly than you would be able to do just by participating in transactions.

We are confident that Practical Project Finance will provide you with a full set of project financing tools – but we want you to be confident of that too before you commit.
