Advanced Arbitrator Training

In addition to the mandatory basic arbitrator training program, FINRA Dispute Resolution offers subject-specific online training modules. These modules are voluntary, unless stated otherwise. Arbitrators who successfully complete FINRA Dispute Resolution's training courses will have this noted on their arbitrator disclosure reports.

 

In certain states, continuing legal education (CLE) credit is available for some of our courses. Please review the CLE chart to determine whether accreditation has been obtained in your area. Questions regarding CLE should be directed to your state bar association.
