COURSE:  WMGT 412 Fundamentals of Financial Management in Civil Engineering

OBJECTIVE:  Provide students a basic financial management foundation to execute their daily duties efficiently and effectively in a civil engineer organization.

DESCRIPTION:  This is an educational course and not intended to train individuals on home station process and procedures. It is intended to educate students so they may apply lessons learned in class to their duties and responsibilities at any duty station. The curriculum initially covers Air Force centric financial management fundamentals. Then students begin learning how those fundamentals apply to a civil engineer organization. Topics such as utility sales, reimbursements, shop rates, and acquiring materials are discussed. In addition, students learn about asset management principles, project programming, contracting with respect to Civil Engineering, Family Housing Privatization, and a familiarization of Air Force Common Output Levels. Lastly, students receive several hours of IWIMS and ACES-FM training conducted by a subject matter expert currently working in the field. While many portions of the class remain lecture or guided discussion, many lesson objectives are reinforced through group exercises.

PRIMARY AUDIENCE:  CE Financial Manager (i.e. Resource Advisor, Budget Analyst/Assistant, Accounting Technician, etc.) and Asset Accountability Manager

SECONDARY AUDIENCE:  Installation Management Flight Chief, AFCEC Analyst, MAJCOM Financial Manager, Comptroller Squadron Budget Officer, Comptroller Squadron Civil Engineer Budget Analyst

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:  Please note class start and end dates have changed. Beginning in FY16, travel days are Monday/Friday vice Sunday/Saturday. This was a direct result of schedule optimization; all lesson objectives will still be met and number of CUEs/CETs awarded remains the same.
