Basic Arbitrator Training (Modules 1-15)

The Basic Arbitrator Training covers each stage of the arbitration process and reviews the procedures that arbitrators must follow to successfully complete an arbitration case. This course requires a thorough review of online self-study materials and completion of an assessment. The assessment consists of 25 multiple-choice questions and requires a minimum passing score of 80 percent (20 correct answers). After you review the course materials, the assessment will be available for you to complete. You will have a maximum of two attempts to pass the assessment. The Basic Arbitrator Training takes approximately six hours to complete.
