Starting a business can be daunting, but with Jim’s Group’s comprehensive training program, you’ll have the knowledge and skills needed to build a successful business. From classroom-style training to hands-on experience in the field, Jim’s Group’s program covers all aspects of the business, providing ongoing support to ensure your continued success.
Starting a new business can be daunting, and it can be even more challenging when you’re starting a franchise. It’s not just about having the funds to invest and a passion for the business; it’s also about having the right skills and knowledge to operate the franchise successfully.
That’s why training is a crucial part of any franchise model, and Jim’s Group’s comprehensive training program sets franchisees up for business success.
Jim’s Group’s training is designed to be very extensive, covering everything from the technical aspects of the business to the financial and operational components. Alan Collins, a Jim’s Group franchisee, said during a Jim’s Podcast interview that the training he received was unparalleled, lasting for 10 days, and covering everything from testing equipment to accounting and construction industry training.
The program even includes goal setting, role-playing exercises, and business planning, preparing franchisees for all aspects of running a business.
Compared to other training programs, Jim’s Group goes into much more detail, ensuring that franchisees understand the technical aspects of the business as well as how to run their business.
Some companies offer a one-day training course that focuses only on testing and tagging, leaving franchisees without the necessary knowledge to manage their business. Jim’s Group, on the other hand, includes comprehensive training on running a business, including setting up appointments, dealing with difficult customers, and cold calling.
Jim’s Group also allows franchisees to attend training as many times as they need to ensure they understand the material fully. Alan said that he even attended the training twice to gain more confidence in talking to customers and handling cold calling.
Training is essential for franchisees, especially in technical fields like electrical safety testing and tagging. It’s not enough to have basic skills; franchisees must be competent in the field and maintain their skills regularly.
Some organizations may try to train someone internally, but this is not recommended. A competent person must have appropriate training and regularly practice their skills. If there’s an incident, the person responsible for the testing and tagging will be held accountable.
Jim’s Group’s comprehensive training ensures that franchisees are competent and capable of providing high-quality services to their customers.
Success Story of Alan, A Jim’s Group Franchisee
Meet Alan, a former Telstra employee who found himself sitting at home for nearly six months after being made redundant. He was waiting for a job offer from another similar company, but unfortunately, the timing was bad, and the government put a hold on recruiting.
He was beginning to worry about the package money that he was chewing through and realized that he could use the redundancy payout to pay off his house instead of wasting it.
One day, he heard an advertisement for Jim’s Group’s test and tag division on the radio, and he thought it seemed like a good idea. He talked to his son about it, and they both went through the training together.
Alan had an electronic background and knew a fair bit about health and safety from his time at Telstra, making Jim’s Group a natural fit. He could work his own hours and choose the locations where he wanted to work, making it more and more attractive the more he thought about it.
Alan started with the test and tag division, but later, he did a different training course in fire safety, where he learned about extra lighting, fire hydrants, hose reels, and more. It was a good fit for the test and tag division because he could package it up with his customers and charge them a more competitive rate. He could test the exit lighting, and fire extinguishers, and do the test and tag, charging the customer only one call-out fee.
Now, after eight years in business, Alan has turned 60 and is looking to retire. He has been selling a few customers to some of the new guys and is managing his time better. He’s keeping up his standard of living financially and doing the things he wants to do while working less.
Alan finds his job less stressful than his previous employment, and his mental well-being is in good shape.
Alan recommends Jim’s Group to anyone who has the confidence or is even a little bit nervous about it. The basic business training Jim’s Group offers gives you the tools to set up how you want your business to run, get your accounting right, and use the people who are skilled.
It’s never too late to start something new, as Alan started when he was 52 years old. So if you’re thinking about starting your own business, why not consider Jim’s Group? You might be surprised at how easy you take to it.
What Sets Jim’s Group’s Training Program Apart
According to Alan, the training is far more extensive than other courses available in the market. In fact, the training program is designed to equip franchisees with the necessary skills and knowledge to run their own successful business.
Starting a business can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t have prior experience. But with Jim’s Group’s comprehensive training program, you don’t have to worry about being unprepared for the field.
What sets Jim’s Group’s training program apart? Let’s dive in.
Jim’s Group’s training program covers all the technical aspects of running a business, including the latest tools, equipment, and techniques in the industry. The training is tailored to each specific division, such as electrical, plumbing, cleaning, and more.
This ensures that franchisees are fully equipped to handle any job that comes their way.
Business and Accounting Training
In addition to technical training, Jim’s Group’s training program also includes comprehensive business and accounting training.
You will learn how to set up your own business, how to set your own agenda, and how to manage your own appointments. You will also learn how to set up the accounting component of your business, which is often overlooked in other training programs.
The training program even includes a session with an accountant who will teach you about the ins and outs of running a successful business.
Marketing and Customer Service
Jim’s Group’s training program also covers marketing and customer service. Franchisees learn how to promote their business effectively, reach new customers, and build long-term relationships with existing ones, so franchisees can grow their business and build a strong reputation in their local community.

The training program also includes sessions on goal setting, where you will learn how to set realistic goals for your business and how to achieve them.
Jim’s Group’s training program also includes information on how to package your services to maximize profits.

Finally, Jim’s Group’s training program offers unlimited training. If you feel like you need more training after completing the program, you can come back as many times as you like. This ensures that you are fully prepared for any situation that may arise in the field.
