This course is for any manager wishing to understand the basic principles that underpin the financial statements using interactive examples to explain the impact of such things as the accruals concept, Capex, Opex and Depreciation.

Who should attend?
This course is for anyone who wants to start to understand financial terms or processes or wishes to cement their existing knowledge.

What you will gain

Delegates will have a short review of the knowledge gained from Module 1 of the programme.
