The training organization declines all responsibility in the event of loss, theft or damage to personal items of any kind left by trainees on its premises (classrooms, workshops, administrative premises, changing rooms, etc.).

Article 13 - Disciplinary procedure

Nature and scale of sanctions

In accordance with article R6352-3 of the French Labor Code, any measure, other than verbal comments, taken by management or its representative following an action considered by the latter to be at fault, whether or not this measure is likely to affect the trainee's immediate presence in the training program or to jeopardize the continuity of the training received, constitutes a sanction. Fines or other financial penalties are prohibited.

The management reserves the right to apply one of the following sanctions in the event of infringement of the present regulations (or the memos issued for their application) or in the event of misconduct on the part of the trainee (theft, breach of trust, assault, insults to the management or members of staff, trainers, etc.).

*Written warning(s);

*Temporary dismissal, with or without immediate effect, with information to funding bodies and employer;

*Definitive dismissal, termination of the training agreement or contract, with information to funding bodies and employer.

Disciplinary procedure

In accordance with current legislation, the present regulations set out the procedures applicable to disciplinary matters, as set out in articles R6352-4 et seq. of the French Labor Code.

According to the provisions of article R6352-4 of the French Labor Code, "No sanction may be imposed on a trainee without the latter having first been informed of the grievances against him/her".

In this respect, when management is considering imposing a sanction which may or may not have an immediate impact on a trainee's attendance at a training course, it summons the trainee in writing by registered letter or by hand-delivery against receipt. This letter indicates the purpose of the meeting, the date, time and place of the interview, and the trainee's right to be assisted by a person of his or her choice, in particular the course delegate.

The director or his or her representative indicates the reason for the proposed sanction and takes the trainee's explanations.

The sanction is the subject of a written, reasoned decision, notified to the trainee or apprentice by registered letter or delivered against receipt. It may not be applied less than one clear day or more than fifteen days after the interview. (Article R6352-6 of the French Labour Code)

Similarly, when the behavior has made it essential to take a precautionary measure of temporary exclusion with immediate effect, no definitive sanction, relating to this behavior, will be taken without the trainee or apprentice having been informed beforehand of the grievances held against him or her, in accordance with Article R. 6352-4 of the Labor Code and, possibly, without the procedure provided for in Articles R. 6352-5 and R. 6352-6, described above having been observed. (Article R6352-7 of the French Labor Code).

The director of the training organization informs the employer and the funding organization of the sanction taken. (Article R6352-8 of the French Labor Code)

Article 14 - Trainee representation

In accordance with Article L6352-3 of the French Labor Code, for each training course lasting more than 500 hours, a titular delegate and a deputy delegate are elected in a two-round uninominal ballot.

All trainees are eligible to vote, with the exception of inmates admitted to participate in a training program.

Voting takes place during training hours. It takes place no earlier than twenty hours and no later than forty hours after the start of the first collective session.

The director of the training organization is responsible for the organization and smooth running of the ballot. If, at the end of the ballot, it is established that trainees cannot be represented, the director will draw up a statement of default.

Delegates are elected for the duration of the course. Their functions end when they cease, for whatever reason, to take part in training courses.

If the titular delegate or the alternate delegate cease their functions before the end of the training course, a new election is held.

The delegates make all suggestions for improving the course of training and the living conditions of trainees in the training organization.

They present all individual or collective complaints relating to these matters, to health and safety conditions, and to the application of internal regulations.
