In an exciting development for the spread of FAST awareness and methodology, we have formed a partnership with Vair Training, LLC to run a range of financial modelling training courses globally.
The alliance combines our modelling courses based on the industry-proven FAST Standard and Vair’s commercially-based training programmes to create a targeted and comprehensive approach to modelling.
While we teach people how to build better financial models that can be used and understood by anyone, Vair deliver advanced financial modelling workshops with a focus on quantitative-based training within the global infrastructure community. Their course topics include financial statement modelling and analysis, project finance and public-private partnerships.
“F1F9 is a financial-training innovator. The FAST modelling methodology that they have been a driving force in developing is one that we have always admired and consistently recommend to our learners” said Stephen Janes, Managing Director at Vair. “By adopting the standard in our own course materials, we are ensuring that our students are part of the largest international community of modellers”.
Added Charles “Chip” Haskell, Managing Director and Head Trainer at Vair, “Offering F1F9 courses to all our students will allow them the opportunity to master the fundamental modelling skills necessary to fully benefit from Vair’s advanced training programmes. We both use a strict ‘hands-on’ approach in our classes, and this collaboration perfectly complements our respective technical and commercial training skills as they pertain to the model”.
Kenny Whitelaw-Jones, Managing Director at F1F9, said “Financial modelling is always a means to an end. Vair courses focus on how to use financial models to support commercial negotiations. To that end, they are an excellent supplement to our model-build courses and we think they will be of real value to our client base”.
