To assist governments, utilities, project lenders, and project developers to better identify, analyze, negotiate, and close infrastructure investment transactions, the Institute for Public-Private Partnerships, A Tetra Tech Company (IP3), has designed a foundational online course titled Fundamentals for Infrastructure Projects. The course offers participants an introduction to project finance and instruction on project finance structures, modeling examples, risk mitigation strategies, and procurement.

This course contains six modules, each of which is to be completed over a one-week period. Completion time is approximately 5 to 6 hours per module. Participants complete reading assignments, analyze case studies, participate in discussion boards and chat rooms with class members and the instructor. Finally, each class member must complete an action plan or other independent assignment to be turned in. Participants must have access to a computer and a reliable Internet connection.

  • Summarize the principles of project finance and key structuring mechanisms
  • Evaluate best practices in conducting financial, economic, and technical feasibility studies for bankable project finance transactions
  • Analyze key project finance structures such as BOO/ BOT, concessions, and other variants
