The Relationship School® The Relationship School® Level One Relationship Coach Certification Agreement
This Level One Relationship Coach Certification Agreement (“Agreement”) between the undersigned participant (“I” or “me”) and The Relationship School LLC, a Colorado limited liability company with a principal place of business at 4404 Wellington Road, Boulder, CO 80301 (“TRS”) sets forth the terms and conditions for my participation in the Relationship Coach Certification Program (the “Program”) and my rights and obligations upon receiving my Level One Relationship Coach Certification (“Certification”).
The Relationship School® is an instructional course developed by Jayson Gaddis for improving and mastering skills and knowledge necessary to achieve and maintain successful relationships. “Relationship Coaches” are individuals who have undergone specialized training through The Relationship School and have been certified by TRS to coach others in their quest to achieve fulfilling relationships. I understand that, by signing this Agreement, I am entering into a binding agreement that governs my certification and practice as a Level One Relationship Coach.
Program Fees. The total fee for participation in the Program is $8,500 (the “Program Fee”). Payment may be made in full in advance no later than August 21, 2017. Alternatively, an initial deposit of $500 may be paid no later than June 21, 2017, with payments of $800 due by the first day of each month thereafter until the full Program Fee is paid. All checks should be made payable to The Relationship School LLC. The Program consists of up to 20 hours of training in 36 course sessions over a nine-month period, with Program training dates provided on the Company’s website, www.relationshipschool.com. In the event of scheduling conflicts, individual Program training dates and/or times may be rescheduled in the discretion of TRS. No refunds shall be provided for withdrawals or missed training dates.
Certification Requirements. I understand and agree that to become a Level One Relationship Coach:
I must attend and satisfactorily complete the full Program.
I must successfully demonstrate mastery of the necessary methods, techniques, practices, dialogue, and principles taught in the Program and pass all exams administered during the Program. Success in such demonstrations and exams shall be determined by TRS in its sole discretion, based on my demonstrated command of the principles and practices taught in the Program. I understand that attendance in the Program does not guarantee that I will become a Level One Relationship Coach and that Program fees are nonrefundable.
My Rights as a Level One relationship Coach. If and when I successfully complete the Program and become a Level One Relationship Coach:
I may refer to myself professionally as a “Relationship School® Certified Level One Relationship Coach.”

I will be eligible to register for and complete additional training programs, which if passed in the sole discretion of TRS, would qualify me as a Level Two Relationship Coach.
