R3-France has established its base camp in Savoie, in the heart of the Tarentaise valley. We welcome you to our training centre located on the banks of the Isère River.

Established in accordance with articles l6352-3 and l6352-4 and r6352-1 to r6352-15 of the French labour code

These regulations apply to all trainees. Each trainee is deemed to accept the terms of this contract when attending training provided by R3-France.

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

Article 3 – General health and safety rules
Each trainee must ensure his or her own personal safety and that of others by respecting, according to his or her training, the general and specific safety instructions in force on the course premises, as well as in matters of hygiene. The health and safety measures applicable to trainees are those set out in these regulations.

Article 4 – Maintenance of equipment in good condition
Each trainee is obliged to keep in good condition the equipment entrusted to him/her for training purposes. 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 forbidden.

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 made available to R3-France so that all trainees are aware of them.

Article 6 – Alcoholic drinks and drugs
The introduction or consumption of drugs or alcoholic beverages on the premises is strictly forbidden. It is forbidden for trainees to enter or remain in the training centre in a state of intoxication or under the influence of drugs.

Article 7 – No smoking
In application of decree n° 92-478 of 29 May 1992 setting the conditions of application of the ban on smoking in places assigned to collective use, smoking is prohibited in the classrooms and workshops.

Article 8 – Timetables – Absence and lateness
The course timetables are set by the training organisation and brought to the attention of the trainees when they are given the course programme. Trainees are required to respect these course schedules, failing which the following provisions will apply:

In the event of absence or lateness to the course, trainees must inform the trainer in charge of the training and justify themselves. Furthermore, trainees may not be absent during the course hours, except in exceptional circumstances specified by the head of the training organisation.
In addition, for job-seeker trainees paid by the State or a region, unjustified absences will result, in application of article R 6341-45 of the Labour Code, in a deduction of remuneration proportional to the duration of the said absences.

In addition, trainees are required to fill in 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 9 – Access to the Organisation
Unless expressly authorised by the Management or the head of the training organisation, trainees who have access to the organisation to follow their course may not :

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

Article 10 – Dress and behaviour
Trainees are requested to come to the organisation in decent dress and to behave correctly towards all persons present in the organisation.

Article 11 – Information and posting

Article 12 – Responsibility of the organisation 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 objects of any kind left by trainees in its premises (classroom, car park, etc.).

Article 13 – Sanctions
Any failure by the trainee to comply with any of the provisions of these internal regulations may be subject to a penalty. Any measure, other than verbal observations, taken by the head of the training organisation following an action taken by the trainee which he considers to be at fault, whether or not this measure is likely to affect immediately the presence of the person concerned on the course or to jeopardise the continuity of the training he receives, constitutes a sanction within the meaning of Article R 6352-3 of the Labour Code. Depending on the seriousness of the breach, the sanction may consist of

Either a warning ;
Either a reprimand or a call to order;
Or a permanent exclusion measure (it is recalled that in the agreement signed by the organisation with the State or the Region, specific provisions are defined in the event of the application of the above sanctions).
Fines or other financial penalties are prohibited.

The head of the training organisation must inform of the sanction taken:

The employer, if the trainee is an employee benefiting from a course under the company’s training plan;
The employer and the joint body which has paid the training expenses, when the trainee is an employee benefiting from a training course within the framework of a training plan.

Article 14 – Disciplinary procedure

The following provisions are a repeat of articles R 6352-4 to R 6352-8 of the Labour Code. No sanction may be imposed on a trainee without the latter having been informed in advance of the grievances against him/her. When the head of the training organisation is considering imposing a sanction which has an impact, whether immediate or otherwise, on the presence of a trainee in a training course, the procedure is as follows:

The head of the training organization shall summon the trainee and indicate the purpose of the summons.
This notice specifies the date, time and place of the interview. It shall be in writing and shall be sent by registered letter or delivered to the person concerned against a receipt.
During the interview, the trainee may be assisted by a person of his choice, whether a trainee or an employee of the training organisation.
The summons mentioned in the previous paragraph shall mention this option. The head of the training organisation shall indicate the reason for the proposed sanction and shall receive the trainee’s explanations.
It is referred to by the head of the training organisation after the above-mentioned interview and formulates an opinion on the envisaged exclusion measure.
The trainee is informed of this referral. He/she is heard by the disciplinary committee at his/her request. In this case, he may be assisted by a person of his choice, either a trainee or an employee of the organisation. The Disciplinary Committee shall transmit its opinion to the Director of the organisation within one clear day of its meeting.
The sanction may not be imposed less than one clear day nor more than fifteen days after the interview or, where appropriate, after the opinion of the disciplinary committee has been forwarded. It shall be the subject of a written, reasoned decision, notified to the trainee in the form of a letter delivered to him/her against receipt or by registered letter. Where the conduct has given rise to an immediate sanction (exclusion, suspension), no final sanction relating to this conduct may be taken without the trainee having been informed beforehand of the grievances against him or her and, where applicable, of the procedure described above.

Article 15 – Publicity

These rules may be consulted on the R3-France website. Trainees are systematically informed of them before the training session. A copy of these rules is available at R3-France training centres.

Article 16 – Representation of trainees
16.1 – For each traineeship lasting more than 100 hours, a full delegate and a substitute delegate shall be elected simultaneously in a two-round nominal ballot. All trainees shall be eligible to vote and to stand for election.
16.2 – Delegates are elected for the duration of the course. Their functions end when they cease to participate in the course. When the titular delegate and the alternate delegate have ceased to hold office before the end of the course, a new election shall be held. The delegates shall make any suggestion for improving the course and the living conditions of the trainees in the training organisation. They shall present individual or collective complaints relating to these matters, to health and safety conditions at work and to the application of these regulations.
