Accelerated Arbitration Course for Advocates and Attorneys
This course is designed specifically for Advocates and practising Attorneys who wish to practise as arbitrators and/or qualify for Fellow status of the Association and for appointment as arbitrators by the Association. The course extends and expands the knowledge and skills that candidates have acquired as a result of their profession. In order to complete this course successfully, candidates should be prepared to devote approximately sixteen hours per week per module to their studies.
Qualification for Enrolment:
The prospective student must be or become a Member of the Association and, in addition thereto, he/she must be a practising Advocate or Attorney with at least five years’ experience as such.
The course consists of the Law and Practice of Arbitration, International Arbitration and Evidence, and Award Writing. The Association’s courses will be presented exclusively through e‑learning. However, a 2-day compulsory workshop will take place in Johannesburg during the course of the year. The course fees include the cost of this workshop but excludes travel costs, which costs are for the candidate’s own expense.
Any person wanting to undertake the course may make application by completing the enrolment form through the link below or through the Association’s web page, www.arbitrators.co.za. Students will therefore be required to have access to the internet in order to be able to download the course material, submit assignments and receive communications from the Association.

The course material will only be made available to the candidate on proof of full payment.
