“Before buying into the Pitman Training Franchise I did a huge amount of research. Obviously what really appealed was the recognised name – everyone knew Pitman Training and I heard only positive things.The Pitman Training Centre I bought into was very established and the handover with the former franchisee was very smooth. He was very supportive and took the time to take me through everything. The other members of the team were also very experienced at doing their job and therefore made it very easy for me to learn on the job as I went along. I also had access to a central business development manager who was always available to help and answer any questions. Whenever I felt that I had a problem, the team would come in to support me through these early weeks.The head office also ran a three day induction which was incredibly valuable as I not only learnt all about the business, I got the opportunity to meet the wider team and other people going through the same process as me. Last year I saw my sales go up by 29% from the initial year, so it has been a great start. What’s more, new and exciting ideas are always coming out of the head office to develop sales, the future looks positive indeed.”
