Online training with PIvotal180

Our approach emphasizes why things work the way they do and how the multi-faceted pieces fit together in the broader context of a transaction.

Pivotal180 training not only can significantly improve your best practice modeling skills, but we also have a real emphasis on the concepts and focusing on what’s important to the transaction, not just how to code every single line in a model, but what really matters. Best practice models are critical in project finance. Our courses however are not limited to financial modeling and best practices in Microsoft Excel, we are committed to explaining how the numbers align with underlying financial and engineering concepts, transaction structures, legal documentation, market conditions and risk management approaches. We don’t just teach how to build models. We teach how to do deals.

It’s not just modeling, it’s how to do a transaction. The training is not just about coding, it teaches students to understand the bigger picture (e.g., contract structures, risks, how to forecast wind) and how to analyze deals. No other provider can teach the details of transactions or tax equity as we do.

Much of the content of our courses is focused on how to achieve the needs of lenders, developers, and various equity participants. 

Our online courses include 12 month access to all content including:

  • Videos explaining key concepts, excel functions and deal terms
  • Excel-based demo tutorials Excel reinforcing key modeling techniques
  • An extensive project model, comparable to what would be used for project development or investment decision-making  (Excel)
  • Video guidance walking you though virtually every line and approach used in the extensive project model
  • A complete line-by-line walk-through of each line of the calculations in the full model.
  • Each lesson of the course has a query function, and you can just post any questions there. Haydn will respond within 24 hours.

The quality and clarity of our online content is truly exceptional, there is simply nothing else like it in the market.
