Training course "Financial Management of EC Projects" in Brussels, 22 - 24 February 2017

Contributed by: EASN-TIS

From 2017-02-22 to 2017-02-24, Belgium
Contrary to other experience based courses, this training is led by a former external auditor of the EC and not by someone who has just been audited a couple of times. The course’s training material is based on the mistakes of hundreds of audited entities and projects, enriched with little secrets and reinforced by a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentations, open discussions, case studies, simulations and group work.
This training will acquaint you with the financial rules and the EU projects environment from the very basics to the most advanced issues. It includes all the essentials for a solid understanding of the terminology, methods and procedures and will guide you from the fundamentals, all the way to mastering financial management. It contains step-by-step guidance along with tips and hints and it is designed to improve the skills necessary to those involved in the financial and managerial aspects of European funded projects.

This is not a course offering insights; any Project Manager who has been audited a couple of times could offer that. What is wrong with the experience based courses is that by definition, one can only speak about issues he faced himself. Instead, this is a complete three days training, led by a former external auditor of the EC, that focuses on all aspects of financial management of EC Funded Projects. At the end of the course, you will be able to understand the methods and procedures of EU projects financial management, accurately prepare a financial report and be prepared for all aspects of an audit control.

During the three days course, special attention will be given to how you can prepare and deal with an audit, by examining common mistakes often found during the audit process and how to deal with them. Really, wouldn’t you want to know what auditors are looking for before they even arrive at your premises?

Strictly limited seats per course ensure a much more focused learning experience and a customized programme.

Course Syllabus
The full course takes place over 3 days:

The first day of the course sets the frame of the EU projects environment. Designed to set the foundations for a solid understanding of the terminology, general basis of the financial project management, methods and procedures. It has been proven very useful for people who have never before worked on an EU project but also for those knowing their ABC but want to fill in missing gaps.

The second day of the course goes into the financial aspects of projects, including the reporting principles applicable to the majority of projects. Is developed to give a sound understanding of the financial management and reporting. It includes all important elements to help participants prepare financial reports correctly.

The last module of the course is set to give an in-depth understanding of not-so-common aspects and on the audit procedure. It is designed to create confidence and to eliminate the possibility of facing “unpleasant surprises” during an audit. It includes very important tips and hints along with potential remedies.
