FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

IFPG Launches Certified Franchise Consultant Program

Parlin, NJ - The International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) is launching a Certified Franchise Consultant Program beginning April 2016. The intent behind this program is to create a more structured environment that allows IFPG Consultant Members to obtain more education and ensure IFPG retains the highest quality brokers and consultants in the industry.

The IFPG Certified Franchise Consultant program consists of a CFC Exam and continuing education. Since all IFPG Consultant Members have already been trained and have many years of experience selling franchises, there is no initial training module.

After completing the IFPG CFC Exam, consultants will participate in ongoing continuing education through our "Impact Sessions." IFPG recently began a "pilot test" of this new webinar format, and found it to be very successful. The IFPG has worked closely with our Contributing Members to ensure the education being offered addresses issues brokers and consultants encounter on a daily basis. The Impact Sessions are an open-forum format where questions and interaction are welcomed and encouraged. IFPG Impact Sessions are held three times per week (approximately 100-150 sessions per year).

"IFPG's Impact Sessions have been a tremendous asset for my business. Each webinar provides real-world solutions to hurdles that consultants face on a daily basis with their candidates", said IFPG Consultant Member Michael Zicchinolfi.

The IFPG is pleased to offer these opportunities for our members to enhance their skills, and assist them in continued professional development.

The IFPG Consultant Membership program is $150 per month and offered as a month-to-month option with no minimum contract.
