Honda Supplier Training (HOST) Training Policy

 

Registration

There are various methods to register for a HOST class or event

  • Use a link on the HOST calendar
  • Use a link sent via email
  • Some class registrations are managed through the instructor’s company. In that case a participant may register by following the directions on the HOST calendar or in the email regarding the class.

 

Payment Methods

  • Use a credit card when registering via the HOST calendar or email link
  • The instructor’s company – payment requirements vary by instructor. All accept credit card payment, and each may or may not permit purchase orders or invoicing.

In the event that you cannot use a credit card to register,

contact us at hondaengage@hna.honda.com or call 937-644-7789.

 

Cancellations

Since HOST contracts with outside sources to teach many of the classes, it is important that we provide our sources with timely cancellations. You may cancel associates up to 10 business days before a class and receive a full refund. Cancellations within 10 business days of the start date are charged full price for the seat held by your associate.

You are permitted to substitute one associate for another, up to and including the day the class starts.

You can manage substitutions and cancellations yourself until 10 business days before the class starts.

In the event that we cancel a class, you will be notified in advance of the planned class date.  Therefore, it is important to include the individual participant’s email and phone number on the registration page. If the attendee does not have access to email, it is the responsibility of the ticket buyer to forward all updates, reminders and/or changes to the individual associate.

 

Weather Cancellations

In the event that Honda is forced to close due to weather conditions, any class that starts the day of a plant closing will be rescheduled. To find out the operation status please call the phone number listed on your registration confirmation or one of the numbers below.

Hotel Reservations

Each supplier is responsible for their own hotel reservations. Local hotels may have a Honda rate. It does not hurt to ask.

 

Lunch

Unless otherwise noted, lunch is the responsibility of each associate. Each Honda facility has a cafeteria.  Other training locations have restaurants close by.

Note – not all Honda cafeterias accept credit cards. Please be prepared to pay with cash.

Dress Code

All attendees must follow Honda’s dress code guidelines in order to participate in training. Honda requires all participants to dress in business casual wear.  Proper attire consists of:

  • Dress or polo shirts
  • Khakis, dress pants, skirts, or nice jeans
  • Must be clean and well kept
  • Closed toed shoes, with backs

 

  • No profanity or controversial logos
  • No exposed midriff or low cut blouses
  • No flip flops or sandals
  • No short skirts
  • No rips or holes

 

Please keep in mind that each training location is a professional establishment and we must follow certain guidelines in order to keep the image that Honda has established.

It will be up to the Honda instructors to determine what action should be taken if violations to the dress code occur. Dress code violations could result in or up to expulsion from the class. Expulsion does not entitle the participant to a refund.
