Training will be run by coaches and members of the leadership team. Prior to attending the Initial Training Program, the franchisor’s team will guide franchisees through its Franchise Opener process which will help franchisees get their business ready for launch and prepare them for their training week. Additional start-up assistance or retraining or refresher courses may be provided by Nurse Next Door, at its discretion, and at a cost to the franchisee based on the then current daily fee for personnel performing such assistance, plus other reasonable expenses, including all travel, meal and accommodation expenses. Nurse Next Door will provide continuing advice and guidance to franchisees in all aspects of the use of the System and the operation of a Franchised Business.
