JST Coaching & Training may cancel or reschedule trainings at its discretion. We are not responsible for costs, outside of course fee refunds, that may be incurred by participants as a result of such cancellations or rescheduling. Additional courses are added based on enrollment.
JST Coaching & Training will notify participants at least two weeks in advance of a training cancellation, unless an unforeseen emergency deems it necessary to cancel a class in short order. Course fees will be refunded to each participant or applied to a future course at the participants’ discretion. We will not cover refunds for travel expenses for onsite training.
In order to provide you with the minimum required training hours for certification, it is important that you are present at all lessons.
If you have an emergency or become ill and are not able to attend a coaching session, please contact your instructor and the Director of Training immediately. You will be expected to complete the lesson materials, review the lesson recording and complete a make-up quiz.
If you need to miss more than 8 hours (4 lessons) of Empowering Students Through Coaching, you will have the option to work with the instructor to cover the missed material at your own expense or receive a certificate of completion for your hours of participation, plus up to 4 class make-up quizzes (8 hours). The policy for Coaching Neurodiverse Learners allows for 4 hours (2 lessons) to be made up when missed.
If you miss any group or individual mentor coaching, you will need to arrange and pay for individual mentor coaching sessions to complete the required 10 hours so as to satisfy requirements of the International Coaching Federation.
Petitions to this policy are considered on a case-by-case basis and must be submitted in writing to your instructor/mentor and the Director of Training/Mentoring.

JST Coaching & Training offers credit for partial completion of a course. We maintain detailed attendance records and will issue a certificate for partial completion upon receipt of all asynchronous assignments, if applicable. If you have questions or concerns regarding the partial credit received, please contact the Director of Training, including the details of the course in which you were enrolled, the number of additional credit hours you are seeking and any additional relevant information. JST Coaching & Training will review your request and based on the course attendance policy, consider providing additional credit hours for the training.

We accept online payments by debit or credit card and will invoice a payment link upon request. All payments will be in U.S. dollars. In addition, payments must be made in full before participants will receive a certificate of course completion
If a participant withdraws from the course before Lesson 2, JST Coaching & Training will refund 90% of the payment received. After that time, we offer a prorated refund or credit towards a future course. No refunds will be provided after Lesson 5 for Empowering Students and Lesson 3 for Coaching Neurodiverse Learners, except under documented special/emergency circumstances. Refunds for all shorter courses must be requested before Lesson 1.

JST Coaching & Training seeks to ensure equitable treatment of every person and to attempt to solve any grievances in a timely and fair manner. Participants have the right to file a grievance regarding presentation or content, facility concerns, or instructor/faculty behavior. All grievances will be addressed to the best of our ability to prevent further problems. A process for filing grievances can be found below:
First, participants should attempt to resolve the issue directly with the educator/trainer, staff, or participant with whom they have an issue. If participants are not comfortable approaching the individual, they can proceed to the next step.
If participants are not comfortable approaching the individual with whom they have a grievance, or are unable to resolve the issue directly, participants should submit a written grievance to the Director of Training within 5 days.
The Director of Training will review the issue and talk to the participant within 3 days of receiving the complaint. The Director of Training will collaborate with all parties involved to resolve the issue.
If a participant does not feel the issue is resolved, a written request for an appeal should be sent to Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, CEO, for review. This appeal should include the original complaint and reason(s) the participant is unsatisfied with the resolution attempt(s). Appeals are reviewed and a written response will be provided to the participant within 10 days. All appeal decisions are final.
