It may also be a welcome refresher course for experienced technical superintendents. Some practical experience is a must.

Module 3 – Financial Management & Communication
Managing costs are an essential part of the tasks of the superintendent. Day 1 of this course explains the differences of CAPEX, OPEX, budgeting, cash flow, payment terms and all relevant financial elements that effects the day to day operations of the technical superintendent. A combination of theory and practical assignments will ensure sufficient insights, enabling the superintendent to understand costs and provide the tools to manage them.
