Welcome to the Franchise Academy

As the peak body representing the Franchise sector, the Franchise Council of Australia is committed to providing existing and potential franchisors, franchisees and other professionals involved within the sector access to the best education programs available.

The establishment of the Franchise Academy coincided with the introduction of nationally recognised qualifications in Franchising. In 2004, we developed Certificate and Diploma level courses in Franchising.

The Franchise Council of Australia continues to pioneer specialist franchising education with the launch of the Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) program in 2012. This career development program offers existing and aspiring franchise professionals and entrepreneurs the opportunity to grow professionally and reach a recognised standard of excellence within the local and international franchise community. You can now receive an industry specific education enabling you to progress towards greater personal and professional heights.

Meeting the requirements for the Certified Franchise ExecutiveTM program and completing the course of study leads to the Certified Franchise ExecutiveTM designation.
