* FINRA offers the classroom portion of the basic arbitrator training program via live video (WebEx) for individuals in every state. FINRA also offers the classroom training in an onsite format in each of our regional offices (CA, FL, IL and NY). The number of CLE credits that may be earned for the basic arbitrator training may vary depending on the method of classroom training taken and individual state bar rules.

** FINRA has been approved for CLE credit for the mini-courses in Florida only. For credit in other states, arbitrators must make individual applications directly to their state bars.
