Live Video or Onsite Classroom Training Session (Part III)
After successfully completing the online basic and expungement courses, candidates are ready to attend a four-hour live video or onsite classroom training course. The live video and onsite courses reinforce concepts learned in the online training, and provide practical guidance for resolving common issues that arise during arbitration. The trainings also provide an opportunity for FINRA's trainer to meet and evaluate each candidate.
Live video trainings are conducted via WebEx several times per month, and are available to individuals in any hearing location. Onsite classroom trainings are conducted in each of our regional offices throughout the year: Boca Raton, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City. Candidates may attend either program to satisfy the classroom training requirement. For either format, candidates must confirm with the trainer that they have successfully completed the online basic course.
Only arbitrator candidates who have submitted an application, received approval to join the roster, and completed successfully the Online Basic Arbitrator Training and Expungement Training courses are eligible to attend this training.
Continuing Legal Education (CLE)
In some states, CLE credit may be available for the classroom portion of the Basic Arbitrator Training Program. If you are taking an upcoming classroom training and are interested in CLE, FINRA will send you a link to affirm your completion of the class. Please contact Chris Avery by email or at (213) 613-2673 if you have any questions regarding CLE.
