Finance for Non‐Financial Managers

Distance learning or in-house three-day course

Many highly qualified university graduates are appointed to senior positions within companies, where they are required to understand and run the finances of the business. Even more graduates find it difficult to grow in the corporate world and choose to use their skills for their own benefit, starting their own businesses. The problem is that they lack the skills needed to control a business’ finances!

This Skills Based Training Course has been designed to equip persons who do not have the academic qualifications in Financial Management, to understand and control the finances of a business. The idea isn’t to create little “Financial Wizards”. On the contrary, many qualified financial managers have found benefit from this practical course.

The assumption is made that the learner has no prior knowledge of financial management whatsoever. In certain of the modules, the learner is supplied with programmes which have been designed in Excel and are extremely user-friendly.

Who should attend

This course has been developed to benefit all levels of management, or any other person responsible for, or involved with the organisation’s strategic planning.

Distance learning

The course content is directed towards outcomes-based education. For this reason, delegates are consistently evaluated by the assignments submitted during the course to ensure that they have assimilated the subject to a satisfactory degree and will be able to perform the tasks taught

The full cost for the course is R7 500,00 per person.

In-house Presentation

Ideally, the course should be presented away from the normal working environment of the employees, thus eliminating interruptions and distraction from their daily workload. To facilitate interaction, the total number of delegates attending the course should not exceed 30.

Each delegate will be handed a full and comprehensive set of reference notes. The notes, handouts and programmes are copyrighted to PBS College.

In-House Fees

Individual quotations will be given as the fee depends on the number of delegates attending the course. Costs and expenses are for the company for whom the course is being presented. These costs include the following:
The venue
Tea and coffee
Refreshments and lunches if required;
Flip chart and pens;
Travelling and accommodation of the presenter of the course if outside Gauteng.

Time and duration

This course is an outcomes-based course. Learners studying via distance learning submit assignments on which they are assessed. It is necessary to obtain at least 50% on every assignment to qualify for the Finance for non-financial management certificate.

In-house the learners are assessed during the two days of the course and qualify on outcomes-based assessments for their certificate.
