questions & Answers

Can you tell me how much time per day or week the trainer is expected to commit?
Business trainers are responsible for designing their training sessions and determining the amount of time required to deliver the training. Therefore, we expect business trainers to honor their commitments to complete the training and provide support to the participants.”

How does compensation work with this type of training?
Please refer to the slides. Payments are made in arrears. Invoices must be submitted after the month is completed and payment is made within 2-3 weeks.

What if trainee wants to hire the trainer as a consultant for their business, how does this work?
If any participant in the program wishes to hire a business trainer for consultation, the trainer must ensure that there is no conflict of interest. This means that they cannot offer the same services they deliver within the sessions conducted by MHCC. If there is such a conflict of interest, the trainer must disclose it to MHCC during the program. However, participants are free to engage the business trainer for services outside of the MHCC business training.
