Trainees have the right to learn in a safe and healthy environment. Any trainee who feels that a grade has been erroneously awarded, who feels that an action to place him or her on probation or suspension is unwarranted or who has some other grievance may appeal that action to the Center Director. The appeal must be made in writing and must be within 20 days of the action in question. The center will investigate the matter and respond within 10 days of the appeal. The Director’s actions may include denial of the petition, change in grade, removal from probationary status, or reinstatement in cases of suspension.
