Financial Modelling and Excel Training

An immersive developmental experience for new and experienced professionals.

Our training courses are highly successful because they challenge the status quo. Analysts of today must reimagine what they know to increase quality and to be efficient in a volatile and hyper fast world. PwC Financial Modelling and Excel Training courses are designed around a core set of basic practices that supercharge all levels of modelling in Excel, leaving the attendees with problem solving skills founded in principle and approaches that they can apply to any challenges they face.


Professional Model Build Training

Professional Model Build is a two-day advanced course for analysts who are already familiar with Excel and want to go further. It provides a comprehensive review of all phases of PwC’s model build methodology and best practice design standards and covers advanced Excel features such as “navigation” and “error check” maps.

This course is a combination of theory, discussion and hands-on use of Excel, and is specifically designed to teach modelling techniques as opposed to how to build a specific kind of model. Our best practices and techniques apply to all modelling in Excel, and we believe that this training approach stands us apart from our competitors.
