The Role of All
Trainer program is a transitional step to help those currently offering other
forms of training to become get involved with our programs. Independent Trainers
typically are either already working full- or part-time in professional training
or have done so in the past. This role has fewer responsibilities but ideally a
growing role in our network.
Trainers, Independent Trainers are not subsidiaries or franchisees. They work as
independent operators (by themselves or in other training operations) using our
materials and distributing our products. In most cases, Independent Trainers are
learning our material and our program through experience. While not official
branches of the Institute, they can represent themselves as licensed trainers.
Trainers don’t necessarily offer all core training sessions and all standard
modules, nor do they focus solely on Institute products. They can pick and choose
the training products that they offer based upon their knowledge and skill.
Like Masters, Independents “own” their training
customers. They are responsible for finding, selling, training, and billing
those customers. The Institute may support those efforts by providing leads, but,
since most Independents are new to the program, this is less likely than with
Independent Trainers cannot train other
trainers to work as part of their business, nor does the Institute refer
Apprentice applicants to them.
Independent Trainers cannot do business under
the “Science of Strategy Institute” name, but they can represent
themselves as a “Licensed Trainer of the Science of Strategy Institute” and use
the logos and materials provided for all trainers.
Independent Trainers must also follow the
operational guidelines determined by the Master Trainer Council in order to
maintain a consistent, high-quality offering.
