Article 1: Preamble
Connexion TIP is a declared independent training organization. Its head office is located at 2 rue de la Tour, 92190 Meudon, France. It is declared under the activity declaration number 11921777992 and is hereinafter referred to as “the training organization”.
These internal rules are intended to specify certain provisions that apply to all registrants and participants in the various courses organized by Connexion TIP to ensure the smooth operation of the proposed training programs.

Article 2: General provisions
In accordance with articles L. 920-50-1 et seq. and R. 922-1 et seq. of the Labor Code, the purpose of these internal regulations is to define the general and permanent rules, and to specify the health and safety regulations and as well as the rules relating to discipline, in particular the penalties applicable to trainees and their rights in the event of a sanction.

Article 3: Scope
The individuals concerned: These rules apply to all trainees registered for a session provided by Connexion TIP for the entire duration of the training program. Each trainee is considered to have accepted the terms of these rules when they follow a training program provided by Connexion TIP and accept that measures be taken in their regard in the event of non-observance of the latter.

Location of the training: The training takes place either on a digital platform (ZOOM or TEAMS or other), or at the customer’s premises, or (most often) in external venues. The provisions of these rules are applicable within the premises of Connexion TIP as well as within any premises intended for training.

Article 4: Health and safety
Each trainee must, in addition, ensure that they respect the rules concerning their personal safety and that of other individuals in force in the establishment where Connexion TIP training programs are provided.
When training takes place in a company or establishment that already has internal regulations, the safety and health measures applicable to trainees are those of the latter, in application of article R. 922-1 of the Labor Code.

Article 5: Alcohol and others
Pursuant to decree n° 2006-1386 of November 15, 2006, setting the conditions for the application of the ban on smoking in places assigned to collective use, it is forbidden to smoke in training venues, except in the areas reserved for this purpose.
It is forbidden for trainees to bring alcoholic beverages to the training venues. It is also forbidden to enter the training venue while intoxicated.
It is also forbidden for trainees, unless special authorization was given, to have their meals in the rooms where the courses are organized.

Article 6: Fire instructions
In accordance with articles R. 232-12-17 et seq. of the Labor Code, the fire instructions, and in particular a map showing the location of fire extinguishers and emergency exits, are posted in the training venue so that they are known to all trainees.

Article 7: Accident
Any accident or incident occurring during a training program must be immediately reported by the injured trainee or the individuals who witnessed the accident to the person in charge of the organization.
In accordance with article R.962-1 of the Labor Code, the accident which occurs while the trainee is at the training venue or while they are travelling to or from that location is the subject of a declaration by the person in charge of the organization to the social security fund.
Article 8: Dress and behavior
Trainees are invited to come to the training venue in decent attire, and to behave correctly towards everyone in the organization.

Article 9: Internship schedules
The internship schedules are set by Connexion TIP or the “ordering party” company and brought to the attention of the trainees either by the invitation sent electronically or when the training program is delivered. Trainees are required to respect these schedules. Connexion TIP reserves the right, within the limits imposed by the provisions in force, to modify the training schedules according to service needs. In the event of absence or late arrival to the course, it is preferable for the trainee to notify either the trainer, or the manager of the training organization, or the “ordering party”. Trainees are required to sign an attendance sheet each day during the entire training program (or at the very end when a digital version of the training is given via a digital platform).

Article 10: Access to the training venue
Unless expressly authorized by Connexion TIP, trainees with access to the training venue to follow their training program cannot facilitate the introduction of a third party to the organization.

Article 11: Use of equipment
Each trainee has the obligation to keep in good condition the equipment entrusted to them for their training program and to use it in accordance with its purpose. The use of the equipment for other purposes, including personal ones, is prohibited, except for the equipment made available for this purpose. At the end of the internship, the trainee is required to return all equipment and documents in their possession belonging to the training organization, except for the educational documents distributed during the training program.
It is strictly prohibited unless expressly waived, to record or film training sessions.
Educational documents provided during training programs are protected by copyright. Reproducing these documents without the authorization of the training organization is strictly prohibited. These documents can only be reused for personal purposes.

Article 12: Responsibility of the training organization
Connexion TIP declines all responsibility in the event of loss, theft or damage to personal items of any kind brought by trainees to the training venue.

Article 13: Respect for the confidentiality of trainee data
Anyone doing an internship at Connexion TIP or an employee of the training organization agrees to keep confidential all personal and professional information of the trainees that comes to their attention.

Article 14: Sanctions
Any failure by the trainee to one of the provisions of these internal rules may be subject to a penalty.
Constitutes a sanction, within the meaning of article R. 922-3 of the Labor Code, any measure, other than verbal observations taken by the director of the training organization or his representative, following an act of the trainee considered by him to be at fault, whether or not this measure is likely to immediately affect the presence of the person concerned in the internship or to call into question the continuity of the training they receive.
Fines or other financial penalties are prohibited.
Depending on the seriousness of the wrongful act, the sanction may consist of either a warning, a reprimand, or a definitive exclusion measure.
The director of the organization must inform of the sanction taken:
1. The employer, when the trainee is an employee benefiting from a training action within the framework of a company’s training plan;
2. The employer and the joint organization which has covered the training costs, when the trainee is an employee benefiting from a training action in the case of leave-of-absence for training;
3. The organization which provided funding for the training action from which the trainee benefited.

Article 15: Disciplinary procedure
No sanction may be imposed on the trainee without the latter having been informed in advance of the complaints against them.
When the head of the training organization or his representative plans to apply a sanction which has an impact, immediate or not, on the presence of a trainee in a training program, the procedure is as follows:
o The head of the training organization or his representative summons the trainee, indicating the purpose of this summons. This specifies the date, time and place of the interview. It is written and sent by registered letter or delivered to the interested party against discharge.
o During the interview, the trainee can be assisted by a person of their choice (trainee or employee of the training organization). The aforementioned convocation mentions this option.
o The head of the training organization or his representative indicates the reason for the sanction being considered, and collects explanations from the trainee.
o In the event that a definitive exclusion from the training is considered and where there is a further training council, a disciplinary committee is set up, comprising of representatives of the trainees. It is referred to by the head of the training organization or his representative after the aforementioned interview and gives an opinion on the planned exclusion measure. The trainee is notified of this referral. They are heard at their request by the disciplinary committee. They can be assisted by a person of their choice, trainee or employee of the training organization within one clear day after their meeting.
o The sanction may not occur less than one clear day, nor more than fifteen days after the interview, or where applicable, after the transmission of the opinion of the disciplinary committee. It is the subject of a written and reasoned decision, notified to the trainee in the form of a letter which is delivered to them against discharge or a registered letter. When the act has given rise to a precautionary measure of temporary exclusion with immediate effect, no definitive sanction relating to this act may be taken without the trainee having been informed in advance of the grievances against him and possibly that the following procedure described above has been observed.

At the end of each training, the trainee is given a report of the training that he must complete and give to the trainer. A certificate of the end of the internship will then be issued to the trainees.
