JST COACHING, LLC TRAINING PROGRAM AGREEMENT
JST COACHING, LLC (“JST Coaching”) is a coach training company whose mission is to provide qualified coaches throughout the world with the tools to serve the needs of youth. To further this mission, JST Coaching is committed to providing high-quality, research-based training to all course participants.
We welcome you to the JST training program, (the “Program”). JST Coaching agrees to provide coach training in ADHD and student life coaching so long as you (the “Trainee”) comply with participation guidelines outlined in this agreement. This includes the practice of “good citizenship” as evidence by respect for and compliance with the core values of the International Coach Federation.
Important Documents Related to JST Training
Together with this document, you will also be provided a course manual through an online learning platform upon registration of the Program you have chosen. It is the responsibility of the Trainee to login to the learning platform and access all course documents.
The actual content of the training may vary somewhat from that specified in promotional materials or brochures received before the dates of the training sessions. JST Coaching and its staff may modify course content or structures as they see fit based on the needs of the Program or other Trainees.
Terms and Conditions of the Training Agreement
Costs of Training:
The tuition for each training is stated on the JST Coaching website. You must enroll and pay in full or make payments according to the payment plans provided for each course. Failure to pay for the training as indicated may result in appropriate legal action to recover all funds due, including legal fees and other reasonable costs of collection. Any and all course access will be suspended and course credits will be withheld until payment is rendered in full.
JST Coaching is committed to your full completion of this course. The Trainee must successfully complete the training and mentoring, if applicable, and submit all self-study assignments which demonstrate the required mastery of the Program.
Upon successful completion of the program, Trainee will receive a certificate of completion denoting the total number of course hours, suitable for submission with an application for an ICF or CCE-Global coaching credential. Completion of this program does NOT denote ADHD coach credentialing.
Guidelines during the Training Period
Permitted Use of JST Materials:
The Program is based on the concepts of Jodi Sleeper-Triplett and are the intellectual property of JST Coaching, LLC.
Trainee shall not during the Program or after completion of the Program, reproduce or permit any party to reproduce any of the written or recorded materials provided to the Trainee, in any manner, part or rendition, without the prior written consent of JST Coaching. You are expected to comply with all Copyright laws. The Trainee has permission to copy information included in the resource section with proper attribution as noted within.
The Trainee understands and accepts that the Program requires the highest levels of integrity. During the course of the program, the Trainee shall not engage in illegal or unethical activities, nor fail to comply with the terms of this Agreement. Any violation may, at the sole discretion of JST Coaching, lead to immediate discharge from the Program.
Additionally, if it is determined that the Trainee has made any kind of false statements on the application, including but not limited to professional credentials, JST Coaching may at its sole discretion discharge Trainee from the Program.
Removal from the Program for any violation of the required behavior or any other violation of this agreement shall be immediate, final and without any refund of previously made payments.
Resolution of disputes
The parties recognize that the foundation of a solid business relationship is avoiding and resolving conflicts between the parties that might arise. In the interest of prompt and economical resolution of conflicts between the parties, the following procedure is adopted for any disputes:
A) In any dispute, the aggrieved party shall give the other party written notice, explaining the problem in detail and suggesting solutions. The other party shall respond in writing within thirty (30) days. If no resolution is reached, refer to “B” below.
B) The parties shall agree on a mediator or mediator service and shall submit their dispute to mediation before pursuing arbitration. This shall take place within 30 days after step “A,” above.
C) If no resolution is reached, the dispute shall be submitted to binding arbitration in Alexandria, VA through the procedures then in effect by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or a successor organization. Use of the AAA procedures does not require the use of AAA as a dispute resolution provider. If possible, the dispute shall be submitted to the arbitrator in writing to further reduce the costs of dispute resolution. If this is not possible, the hearing shall be held in Alexandria, VA. The direct costs of the arbitration shall be borne equally by the parties regardless of the outcome of the arbitration. Where the dispute resolution agency assesses a fee related to the amount claimed by a party, that fee shall be the responsibility of the party claiming same. Each party shall bear its own counsel, travel and preparation costs.
Notwithstanding the agreement to Arbitrate in this agreement, the Trainee understands and agrees that JST Coaching LLC shall have the absolute right and be entitled to seek preliminary, temporary and permanent injunctive relief against Trainee for breach of this Agreement or any misuse of the JST Coaching intellectual property, including but not limited to, its Copyright, Trademarks, logos, and identifiable phrases and concepts, whether such intellectual property is held in the name of the JST Coaching or in the name of Jodi Sleeper-Triplett. The request of injunctive relief shall be brought in the State or Federal courts of Alexandria, Virginia.
The Trainee will execute and deliver all instruments and documents and take all actions as may be reasonably required or appropriate to carry out the purposes of this Agreement.
This Agreement contains the entire and final agreement between JST Coaching and Trainee and it supersedes all understandings whether written or oral, agreements, representations and warranties, if any, which precede or are contemporaneous with the execution of this Agreement. No agent or employee of JST Coaching or their agents or employees have the authority to make any representation or promise not contained in this agreement, and the Trainee has not executed this agreement in reliance on any such representation or promise.
JST Coaching may assign any or all of its rights ranted hereunder to any party, but this Agreement and all of Trainee’s obligations hereunder are personal to the Trainee and shall not, without the prior written consent of JST Coaching, be assigned, sublicensed, or otherwise encumbered by the Trainee. Any attempt by the Trainee to assign, sublicense, or otherwise encumber any or all of his or her obligations hereunder shall constitute and immediate termination of this Agreement.

The failure or delay of either party in enforcing any of its rights under this Agreement shall not be deemed a continuing waiver of such right. This Agreement may not be released, discharged, amended or modified in any manner except by an instrument in writing signed by the parties.
If any provision of this Agreement is, becomes, or is deemed invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such provision shall be deemed amended to conform to the applicable laws so as to be valid and enforceable, or if it cannot be so amended without materially altering the intention of the parties hereto, it shall be stricken and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
