Rules and regulations for ComColors training courses

Article 1 – Personnel subject to these rules

These regulations apply to all Trainees. Each Trainee is deemed to accept the terms of this contract when following a training course provided by ComColors Partners.

Article 2 – General conditions

All trainees must comply with these rules in all matters relating to the application of health and safety regulations, as well as the general and permanent rules relating to discipline.

Article 3 – General health and safety rules

All trainees must ensure their personal safety and that of others by complying with the general and specific safety instructions in force at the training site and in terms of hygiene, depending on their training.

However, in accordance with article R.6352-1 of the French Labour Code, when training takes place in a company or establishment that already has internal regulations, the health and safety measures applicable to trainees are those set out in these regulations.

Article 4 – Maintaining equipment in good condition

All trainees are obliged to keep the equipment entrusted to them for training purposes in good condition. Trainees are required to use the equipment in accordance with its purpose: the use of the equipment for other purposes, in particular personal use, is prohibited.

Article 5 – Fire instructions

Fire instructions, and in particular a map showing the location of fire extinguishers and emergency exits, are posted in the premises where the training takes place so that all trainees are aware of them.

Article 6 – Accidents

Any accident or incident occurring during or in connection with the training must be reported immediately by the trainee involved in the accident, or by any person who witnessed the accident, to the head of the organisation.

In accordance with article R 6342-3 of the French Labour Code, any accident occurring to a trainee while in the training centre or while travelling to or from the training centre must be reported by the training centre manager to the social security fund.

Article 7 – Alcoholic drinks

It is forbidden for trainees to enter or remain in the organisation in a state of intoxication, or to bring in alcoholic beverages.

Article 8 – No smoking

In application of decree no. 92-478 of 29 May 1992 laying down the conditions for the application of the ban on smoking in places designated for collective use, smoking is prohibited in classrooms and workshops.

Article 9 – Timetables – Absence and lateness

The course timetables are set by the Management or the head of the training organisation and brought to the attention of the trainees either by means of a notice board or when the trainees are given the course programme. Trainees are obliged to respect these course timetables, failing which the following provisions will apply.

In the event of absence or lateness to the course, trainees must notify the trainer or the secretariat of the organisation in charge of the training and justify their absence or lateness.

Furthermore, trainees may not be absent during course hours, except in exceptional circumstances specified by the Management or the head of the training organisation.
When trainees are employees undergoing training as part of the training plan, the organisation must inform the company of such absences in advance. Any absence or lateness not justified by special circumstances constitutes misconduct liable to disciplinary action.

In addition, for job-seeker trainees paid by the State or a region, unjustified absences will result, pursuant to article R 6341-45 of the French Labour Code, in a deduction from remuneration proportional to the duration of said absences.
In addition, trainees are required to complete or sign the attendance certificate on a regular basis as the course progresses, and at the end of the course, the training report and the course follow-up certificate.

Article 10 – Access to the training site

Unless expressly authorised by the Management or the head of the training organisation, trainees who have access to the training centre to follow their course may not :

Enter or remain there for any other purpose;
Introduce, cause to be introduced or facilitate the introduction of persons not belonging to the organisation, or goods intended for sale to staff or trainees.

Article 11 – Dress and behaviour

Trainees are asked to arrive at the training centre in decent clothing and to behave correctly towards all persons present in the centre.

Article 12 – The organisation’s liability in the event of theft or damage to trainees’ personal property

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

Article 13 – Penalties

Any failure by a trainee to comply with any of the provisions of these internal regulations may result in a penalty.

A penalty within the meaning of article R 6352-3 of the French Labour Code is any measure, other than verbal observations, taken by the head of the training organisation or his representative, following an action by the trainee which he considers to be at fault, whether or not this measure is likely to immediately affect the presence of the person concerned on the course or to jeopardise the continuity of the training he is receiving.

Depending on the seriousness of the breach, the penalty may consist of:

  • A warning;
  • A reprimand or call to order;
  • or permanent exclusion (please note that in the agreement signed by the organisation with the State or the Region, specific provisions are defined in the event of application of the above sanctions).
  • Fines or other financial penalties are prohibited.

The head of the training organisation must inform the trainee of the sanction imposed:

  • The employer, if the trainee is an employee benefiting from a training course as part of the company’s training plan;
  • The employer and the joint body that has paid the training expenses, if the trainee is an employee on training leave.

Article 14 – Disciplinary procedure

The following provisions are taken from articles R 6352-4 to R 6352-8 of the French Labour Code.

No penalty may be imposed on a trainee without the latter having first been informed of the grounds on which he is being held.

When the head of the training organisation or his representative is considering imposing a sanction which has an impact, whether immediate or otherwise, on a trainee’s attendance at a training course, the procedure shall be as follows :

  • The head of the training organisation or his representative will invite the trainee to attend the interview, indicating the purpose of the invitation.
  • This notice specifies the date, time and place of the interview. It is in writing and is sent by registered post or delivered to the trainee against receipt.
  • During the interview, the trainee may be assisted by a person of his choice, either a trainee or an employee of the training organisation.
  • The summons referred to in the previous paragraph shall mention this option. The head of the training organisation or his representative will state the reason for the proposed sanction and will hear the trainee’s explanations. If a permanent exclusion from the course is envisaged and there is a Development Committee, this will be set up as a Disciplinary Committee, on which the trainees’ representatives will sit.
  • The matter is referred to it by the head of the training organisation or his representative after the above-mentioned interview and it issues an opinion on the proposed exclusion measure.
  • The trainee is notified of this referral. At his request, he will be heard by the Disciplinary Committee. In this case, he may be assisted by a person of his choice, whether a trainee or an employee of the organisation. The Disciplinary Committee shall forward its opinion to the Director of the organisation within one clear day of its meeting.

The penalty may not be imposed less than one clear day nor more than fifteen days after the interview or, where applicable, after the opinion of the Disciplinary Committee has been communicated. The trainee will be notified of the decision in writing, stating the reasons, by means of a letter delivered against receipt or by registered post.
When the behaviour has given rise to an immediate sanction (exclusion, suspension), no definitive sanction relating to this behaviour may be taken without the trainee having first been informed of the grievances against him/her and, if applicable, after the procedure described above has been followed.

Article 15 – Application

These internal rules come into force as soon as the trainee has validated them at the start of the course.
