CPD for Arbitrators

Arbitrator Experience Programme

As a leading arbitration service provider we know how hard it is to break into arbitration, and to hold your place at the table. With this in mind, we have developed ArbEx – providing qualified arbitrators with a pathway to success in this highly competitive field.


ArbEx is a CDP programme for qualified arbitrators.  It is not a training programme. Hunt ADR  does not currently provide arbitrator training, we recommend that if you wish to be trained as an arbitrator you seek guidance from the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.  To take part in ArbEx you must be trained to MCIArb / FCIArb / Chartered status and must have award writing experience.

Successful applicants will receive up to 10 appointments across a range of schemes.  Upon completion of the programme participants will receive a Certificate of Verification and a detailed Performance Feedback Report which can be used to help to secure further appointments.

Limited places are available on a first come first served basis. A waiting list is maintained. A one-off administration fee of £85 plus VAT applies.
