Financial Accounting Non-Financial Managers

Please note that this course will take place on April 20, 21, 27 &28 from 9:30am - 1:00pm and will be delivered via Zoom.  Participants will require a stable internet connection with access to audio tools (headset or speakers & microphone).


If you’re responsible for any aspect of profitability in your company and you’ve never been trained to read, produce, and analyze financial reports, you need to take this course. Companies need to use every tool at their disposal to discover where expenses and profits are hiding. Maximizing profits and generating investment returns are two real concerns of any company – and they depend on solid

financial decisions.

How are you managing high overhead costs, employee productivity and a very competitive climate? Most qualified contractors tend to focus their improvements on equipment, supplies and people. Often, they are unaware that a good financial and accounting understanding will make a significant difference in the way personnel manage the organization and their projects.

This 4- ½-day instructor-led live webinar, Gold Seal certified course, specifically focuses on nonfinancial managers in the construction industry and guides project managers, coordinators, estimators, field superintendents, owners and senior managers through the financial and measurement techniques needed to manage their contracting business.

This is not a sit and listen event. This is an interactive course with hands-on exercises that walk you through each step of the financial process. You’ll take home a comprehensive course manual filled with the methodologies and strategies you need to improve your business.
