There are many different types of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and the skills associated with them are highly regarded and appreciated by employers and organisations.

This course aims to give candidates:

  • A background understanding of ADR
  • An understanding of how ADR can support dispute cases

  • Eligibility to become an Associate member of CIArb (ACIArb)

The Introduction to ADR course can be taken online and also face-to-face.
