CIArb offers newly discounted virtual ADR training for businesses and others

17 Apr 2020

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) is delighted to offer businesses and others a 15% discount on its virtual training courses provided that five or more people register together for the same course. Bespoke and flexible training solutions in terms of dates and times can also be discussed.

Last week, Dr Paresh Kathrani, Director of Education & Training at CIArb, launched CIArb’s new virtual classroom solution, provided by BigBlueButton, which has been integrated to CIArb’s virtual learning environment, ‘LearnADR’, so that tutors and candidates can connect from their homes by video and through other classroom tools, and CIArb’s assessments can also be done remotely.

Margherita Blandini, Head of the Education and Training Department at CIArb says: ‘We are aware of the impact that the spread of Covid-19 is having on businesses, both in terms of pre-litigation concerns and dispute prevention. We believe that dispute avoidance and resolution mechanisms provide a way to respond to these challenges by assisting business interests while catering for the new reality. For this reason, we are making our membership bearing courses more accessible to them at this time’.

Two further newly launched flexible distance learning products are also available to businesses now. The audiobook, ‘Resolving Disputes Today’, written by Richard Barnes FCIArb and narrated by Michael Patchett-Joyce FCIArb, looks at ADR techniques such as arbitration and negotiation, and can be purchased on platforms such as Apple and Google. The E-module ‘Avoiding and Resolving Contractual Disputes’ looks at how contracts are formed, and the way in which legal terms can be both interpreted and applied with regards to dispute prevention and resolution and can be booked here.

The 15% discount on membership courses above is an opening offer and limited until the end of May 2020. For further information and to express interest, please contact Professional Services by emailing education@ciarb.org.
