AFC FRANCHISE TRAINING & SUPPORT
Whether you’re a new or experienced franchisee, proper AFC franchise training is one of the most important components of making your business successful. AFC works to provide high-quality franchise training and support to introduce new owners to our business, as well as ongoing training to ensure continued adherence to best practices.
CORPORATE TRAINING PROGRAMS
AFC FRANCHISE TRAINING FOR NEW OWNERS
Ready to learn how to open an urgent care facility? Once your franchise is awarded, you will begin our pre-opening process.
OPEN YOUR URGENT CARE FACILITY
These preliminary steps include important tasks for opening your franchise which are tied to crucial training objectives. Training in our time-tested methodology and culture will begin on day one, and continue through a two-and-a-half-day corporate training experience in Birmingham, Alabama. We’ll cover a range of topics, including technology training, to get you familiar with the day-to-day tasks of running an AFC franchise. Your initial training will culminate in an on-site visit by one of our experts to ensure that you’re correctly applying everything you’ve learned. We think you’ll find that starting your own healthcare business is a straightforward process with AFC.
OPERATIONS AND PROCEDURES MANUALS
All franchisees are also provided with a thorough operations and procedures manual. This manual details recommended recruiting, hiring, risk management, and staffing procedures, and reinforces the details on how to profitably run your urgent care business.
DOES AFC URGENT CARE OFFER ONGOING TRAINING AND SUPPORT?
ONGOING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
TRAINING DOESN'T END WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR NEW URGENT CARE CLINIC!
We believe that the entire AFC team benefits when training and professional development occur on a regular, ongoing basis. That’s why we offer continued education via access to conferences, webinars, conference calls, written modules, and other media, so our AFC franchise owners can learn according to their own schedules.
STAFF TRAINING TO DELIVER EXCELLENT PATIENT CARE
We also provide module-based training to our center staff so they can enhance their skills and continue to deliver the level of excellent patient care that AFC clinics are known for.
A TURNKEY WALK-IN CLINIC FRANCHISE
AFC ONGOING SUPPORT
OUR TURNKEY BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
When you open your own American Family Care medical clinic franchise, you’re in business for yourself, not by yourself. Our model is truly turn-key, offering full support (new franchise owners are assigned a Franchise Business Consultant from day one), and a pre-opening package. All of this enables new AFC franchise owners to hit the ground running as soon as they have completed our pre-opening task list and undergone our training.
