M. If the Company provides any training for the Wellness Advocate at the cost of the Wellness Advocate, then the Wellness Advocate may require the Company to refund such cost (less the cost of any subsistence) within 14 (fourteen) days of the training if the Wellness Advocate is dissatisfied with the training.
