Corporate Training

  • 20% discount for all attendees in Group courses . For institutional clients we offer a further discount.
  • Tailored curricula: We can tailor any of our public courses to your particular requirements, and discuss what exercises / case studies will be relevant to your staff.  Some clients have chosen one topic from our public courses and asked it be expanded into a 2 day course, others have asked us to turn a 2 day course into a series of lunchtime lectures.
  • Pre-course testing: to assess the attendees level of Excel: we want to teach your staff new abilities – not what they already know.
  • Post-course testing:  at a random date: attendees tend to focus more if they know they will be tested.
  • Post-course assistance: We are still helping students from many years ago :  thanks to email and Skype (i.e. showing excel screens on skype) we can help you with most issues in a matter of hours.
Are your staff fast enough to react to change? React to clients? React to the competition? After attending one of our courses they will be!   Up-skilling staff / helping them become faster at Excel, benefits the employer in the long run.


Some examples of tailored training are as follows, and could range from a lunchtime session to a half day course to 5 days.

Barrick Gold Corporation – 2013: Cairns

RFA gave 4 days intensive financial modelling training to financial staff from Barrick Gold, PNG and Zambia.

We were able to illustrate how many complex formulae can be easily constructed-as well as many timesaving tips and short-cuts The best feedback we can get is when students tell us they were able to go back to the office on Monday and implement  everything they’d learnt – and create more efficient/cleaner financial models, that produce results quicker- and generally make their job easier- and this is what these attendees told us.

Siemens – Febuary 2013: Nuremberg

RFA consulted to Siemens AG in Nuremberg, Germany re construction of a new global, standard template financial model for one of their divisions, and also gave training to the team in Advanced Excel and Financial Modelling.
