Detailed and pedagogical!
As someone new to finance, this course was a bit like drinking out of a fire hose. I think this course is perfect with someone who has a basic foundation in Excel and finance and wants a more detailed understanding. Still, I was super impressed by the attention to detail for each lesson and the amount of information contained.

Complete breakdown of the financial model into great detail, with excellent lessons and examples. Even though the material can be quite dry, lessons were given in a very engaging and even fun way. Loved the occasional jokes, will definitely recommend!

Haydn was brilliant, and I don’t throw that out lightly.
I teach, do seminars, and SME for many clients and have pretty high expectations – not many people could have kept me positively engaged for 10 sessions. The material is exceptionally well organized to tie-in the “model building” with the “model thinking” which is challenging for the complexity of the material.

Great course for new & experienced TE modelers
Thanks Haydn and team for the great course. Even with several years of TE experience, I still found the lesson plan valuable.

Informative and easy to follow
I already have several years of experience in renewable energy modelling, but I still found that Pivotal180 training included several tips & tricks along the way (esp. regarding model set up and design) that I will incorporate into my own work. I also thought the lectures strike a good balance between the “why” we need to know about the underlying details of a project and “how” we translate that into a model; e.g. being able to set up and size a term loan correctly.

The Renewable Energy Project Finance Financial modeling course was very good. I enjoyed the format and the ability to interact with lecturers. Hendrik Blommestein on Renewable Energy Project Finance Modeling (Online)!
Haydn and Dan’s Renewable Project Finance modeling course was great. The course, and in particular, Dan and Haydn’s knowledge and experience exceeded our expectations. We look forward to taking another course! Brian Graff Chief Executive Officer Energy Acuity
“The Pivotal 180 energy financial modeling course was incredibly valuable, it was perfectly paced; slow enough that I could model and take thorough notes but not too slow to be boring. The instructors were comprehensive and answered all questions including after class follow-up. I highly recommend this course.”
– Director, Energy & infrastructure Investments, Siemens Financial Services.
“The content is very relevant and structure is easy and digestible. I asked a question on the forum and got a response straight away!”

Congratulations Daniel Gross, Haydn, Alison, and the rest of the Pivotal180 team. I just completed the renewable energy project finance course, and if the new tax equity course is anywhere close to that quality, I’d highly recommend it to anyone interested. The project finance course was fantastic – a practical, detailed overview that teaches every aspect of modeling. Great work to all involved! Excited to see what else you have in store. Mark Fowler, Director of Government Relations at Ameresco
I absolutely loved the RE Project Finance Modeling course, and leveled up my modeling skills much more quickly than I have through any other course. Dan and Haydn are incredibly clear and thorough, so true beginners will benefit, but the course moves quickly and I have a much more in depth knowledge of the topics I though I’d covered prior to this course. Though I typically prefer in-person courses, I’m now a convert to the online format as it allows for self-pacing, and there’s no chance of falling behind because you missed what the instructor was saying. Looking forward to the next Pivotal180 course I can sign up for! Fiona Wilson Clinton Foundation
I am extremely happy with this course and the simplified, step-by-step presentation from the Pivotal 180 team.

I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their financial modeling skills!
We recently engaged Pivotal 180 to provide us with Tax Equity Modeling online training. This training was given to select members of our team in financial reporting, tax, finance and development.
We recommend the online training services of Pivotal180. Pivotal 180 provides quality educational programs; the thorough explanations, detailed explanations of calculation and well-structured training allowed for one to gain an in-depth understanding of complex material.
I just finished the renewable energy project finance modeling course online yesterday and thought that it was amazingly educational and quite enjoyable. I am definitely signing up for the infrastructure course as well Jesse Wu on Renewable Energy Project Finance Financial Modeling Online Course

I took this course to improve my renewable energy project finance knowledge and capabilities as I look to move from the construction industry in to renewable energy finance and I found the course incredibly valuable. The course instructor was very knowledgeable and the lessons were very well run. The content in the virtual platform that is available outside of the lessons were a great resource to help me build my competencies in certain areas that I felt I needed to develop further. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to develop a solid foundation in renewable energy project finance modelling.

I feel this was incredibly helpful, and we have already run into several instances where we have been able to translate something from the course into our daily work. Jordyn and I both agreed that we would recommend this course for anyone new to our company as an analyst. It can be difficult to catch up when you work for a smaller company, and this course filled in A LOT of knowledge gaps we have had since day 1.
