IT Funding and Cost Center Management

This IT Funding and Cost Center Management training class provides an introduction to the IT budgeting process. It is ideal for new managers who do not have a budgeting background, seasoned managers that have not had cost center responsibility, and/or anyone who does not have experience in corporate budgeting practices.

This class takes a very narrow view of IT budgeting. It specifically concentrates on the issues, responsibilities, and activities of cost center managers (that is, as a manager responsible for department expenses).

What people say about our training

This training class is refreshingly beneficial and exceeded my expectations of on-line learning courses. We were able to really learn the fundamentals of InDesign in three days. I know this software would have been a nightmare without Webucator and the expert instructors they provide to you.

As someone who has never even opened the VB Editor, this was a great course to understand the layout, some of the basic functions, and practice with examples.
