e-Learning Course

Our online version of Finance for Non-Financial Managers provides a mix of videos and activities based on real-world scenarios to re-enforce what has been taught.

We realise that online learning can be a more convenient option for many, so we built our online courses using learning and development best practice to provide a dynamic and engaging learning experience, overall, making sure to incorporate all the highly regarded material from our in-person sessions.

This online training format consists of six learning modules spread across 6 weeks, which take around 2 hours to complete. This course is a bit more flexible than our others as learners can complete the modules at their own pace.
