Who We Are

Franchise Academy

Franchising in Australia represents a dynamic small business sector with an estimated annual turnover in excess of $130 billion . It comprises enterprising entrepreneurs as franchisors and franchisees employing approximately 400,000 Australians.

The Franchise Council of Australia, as the peak body representing the franchise sector, has a prime business objective to provide existing and potential franchisors and franchisees with access to the best education programs available.

The Franchise Academy was established to deliver this objective by equipping people who are developing a career in Franchising with the skills and knowledge vital for their success and the continuing success of the sector.

In 2012, the Franchise Academy launched the Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) program. 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. CFE courses present the most up-to-date knowledge and relevant theory, together with practical skills that you can apply immediately to your advantage in your workplace.

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