A training franchise is a set up whereby you pay an amount to buy into a training provider and then pay a percentage of your gross income to them. (This can vary between 17.5% to 25% of the gross)
This saves you having to write your own training material and having it approved,so it can be a much quicker route into training.
To be an effective trainer you need to be an experienced hypnotherapist.
The franchisor may or may not take this into consideration.
Trainer levels may be lower due to the fact that after net costs, the net profit share of the remaining balance will be lower.
They may still advertise 2 trainers however only one will be in full time attendance the other may “guest” at various slots.
This will affect the level of practical work, which may mean you will have to pay more for practise sessions outside of the training.
The franchisor may or may not visit the franchisee to see if the training taking place resembles the prospectus.
Terence Watts in his guide to hypnotherapy training providers is especially scathing of franchise operations.
Some may hide the fact that it is franchise by saying they are a “director" or it is an "academy"
