What is required to become a Asentiv certified coach/trainer?
The first requirement to train Asentiv material is to either own a Asentiv Franchise or become certified to deliver the material on behalf of an Asentiv Franchise Owner.
Typically trainers/coaches working for franchise owners will first take the programs as a student and show results implementing the material. Once someone has become successful with the material as a student and they desire to get more involved they are given the opportunity to implement the same marketing techniques representing Asentiv. At this point the prospective trainer will attend trainer certification put on by Asentiv headquarters and have the opportunity to train Asentiv material.
Can an Director Consultant become a Asentiv Certified Coach / Franchisee?
Yes they can, but only with the recommendation of the Executive Director. Many Director Consultants have other fulltime jobs. If a Director Consultant were to choose being a referral trainer as a career, this could be a good opportunity for them to recommend BNI to their clients and in their marketing efforts. For anyone to pursue a Asentiv franchise or certification they must first be referred by a Asentiv franchise owner or a BNI franchise owner. This referral process gives BNI Executive Directors input on who is training in their area and gives Asentiv pre-screened prospects. This process will also give a greater probability of a strong relationship between BNI and the Asentiv in the local area.
As you know we help business owners build their business by building strong business relationships that in turn generate quality referrals. Well, it probably isn’t a shock to hear that’s how we market our business. Most clients will be recommended by either a Asentiv franchise owner or a franchise owner of our strategic alliance BNI, Business Network International.
