Costs, Volumes and Profits Course

The difference between business revenue and costs of operation make up business profits. Sales volumes and the cost of products or services can impact the potential of a business to generate profits. This relationship is explained through cost-volume-profit analysis.

The difference between sales and variable costs or the cost of goods and/or services sold makes up profits. After deducting fixed costs from the gross profit, you are left with income or the net profit. Fixed costs range from rent and interest to insurance and labour costs. They are indirectly related to production of goods and services. Higher costs lead to lower profits and vice versa. Increasing revenue or lowering costs can increase profits. Improving the efficiency of business operations, reducing the cost of material and cutting on labour can reduce costs. The cuts on costs should not cause a drop in business revenue to increase profits. If the sales volumes are higher than variable costs, more profits can be generated. Constant sales volume and revenue with reduced costs can increase profits.

This course explains the relationship between costs, volumes and profits through cost-volume-profit analysis. We show how changes in prices, margins and unit volumes of products or services can affect a company’s ability to generate profits. Cost-volume-profit or CVP analysis is a critical tool for financial analysis that helps businesses determine their ability to become profitable.

I have just completed the ADHD Diploma.

I found the course extremely interesting and informative, especially for parents with children who have ADHD or people who work with children with the condition. It has changed my perspective on the condition a lot. I have therefore recommended this course to others.

The course was very well structured and easy to navigate. The wording used was simple to understand yet effective. The test was multiple choice which I liked and you are able to access your certificate straight after successful completion of the test which I thought was great.

I will definitely be purchasing another course from New Skills Academy.

Melissa Birch

This online course gave me the opportunity to plan my study time around the rest of my day, instead of the other way around. I was able to study and work when I was at my peak energy, whether that’s early morning or late at night.

The course material was always accessible online, so there was no need to schedule special trips to a library either. It makes a good option for everyone who needs to keep the balance between their work and family commitments.

Simple and understandable language. I really recommend to anyone who would like to improve qualifications.

Urszula Jakobczak

I took it up in myself to take this course as I am wanting to get on the personal trainer business. I found this course to be really insightful and beneficial.

As well as providing the information needed for health care professionals in the Fitness industry, it also provides the information you might be interested in to take your career further. Such as qualifications you can take afterwards to specialise in a specific area in the Fitness industry.

If you want an informative course that gives you a little extra, this is perfect for you. If you would like the bare minimum, then this course isn’t for you.

Emma Fulford

This course is really concise and well written. I am exceptionally pleased with my purchase and I am hoping that I will soon progress towards a job in this industry.

You can complete this all online but you also have the option to save the modules in pdf or print the modules for your records which is great for revision.

Great price and lots of help

Rochelle Hughes

Well structured and easy to follow coursework. My queries were answered promptly and were clearly not stock Q&A responses so I felt I had been given real support.

The test at the end was unexpected as the end of module tests were self marking. As it was a timed test that covered every aspect of the course but in a random way which meant one had to pay attention and read the questions carefully!

I feel I have achieved something and will certainly follow up with another course. New Skills Academy is highly recommended as an online study organisation, as well.

The course is broken down into 0 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

I was pleased to find the course I wanted at such a reasonable price. The system is really easy to use and the information given is clear and precise.

I like the fact you can print each module as I like to make hand written notes when studying. The course has provided me with a better understanding of the construction industry, even with all the reading it kept me interested throughout.

The customer service was prompt and very helpful, and I love that you can take your own time in completing the course.

I look forward to completing new courses in the future, Thank You!

I have just completed the ADHD Diploma.

I found the course extremely interesting and informative, especially for parents with children who have ADHD or people who work with children with the condition. It has changed my perspective on the condition a lot. I have therefore recommended this course to others.

The course was very well structured and easy to navigate. The wording used was simple to understand yet effective. The test was multiple choice which I liked and you are able to access your certificate straight after successful completion of the test which I thought was great.

I will definitely be purchasing another course from New Skills Academy.

This online course gave me the opportunity to plan my study time around the rest of my day, instead of the other way around. I was able to study and work when I was at my peak energy, whether that’s early morning or late at night.

The course material was always accessible online, so there was no need to schedule special trips to a library either. It makes a good option for everyone who needs to keep the balance between their work and family commitments.

Simple and understandable language. I really recommend to anyone who would like to improve qualifications.

Urszula Jakobczak

I took it up in myself to take this course as I am wanting to get on the personal trainer business. I found this course to be really insightful and beneficial.

As well as providing the information needed for health care professionals in the Fitness industry, it also provides the information you might be interested in to take your career further. Such as qualifications you can take afterwards to specialise in a specific area in the Fitness industry.

If you want an informative course that gives you a little extra, this is perfect for you. If you would like the bare minimum, then this course isn’t for you.

This course is really concise and well written. I am exceptionally pleased with my purchase and I am hoping that I will soon progress towards a job in this industry.

You can complete this all online but you also have the option to save the modules in pdf or print the modules for your records which is great for revision.

Great price and lots of help

Well structured and easy to follow coursework. My queries were answered promptly and were clearly not stock Q&A responses so I felt I had been given real support.

The test at the end was unexpected as the end of module tests were self marking. As it was a timed test that covered every aspect of the course but in a random way which meant one had to pay attention and read the questions carefully!

I feel I have achieved something and will certainly follow up with another course. New Skills Academy is highly recommended as an online study organisation, as well.
