Course description

Module 1 - Law Practice and Procedure of Construction Adjudication

The aim of this course is to provide students with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the law and principles of construction adjudication. Module 3 will cover decision making, drafting and evidence. The course is suitable for people who are interested in adjudication as advisors to parties in dispute, and provides the basis on which those wanting to become an adjudicator can proceed to Fellowship of CIArb.

Suitability - Who should attend?

There are no pre-requisite entry requirements for this course.

English Language Competence - CIArb training and assessment is carried out in English it is therefore essential that candidates are proficient in both written and spoken English. Where English is not a candidate’s first language it is recommended that they have achieved a standard that is, as a minimum, equivalent to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) level 7 or a score of 94-101 in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) system. CIArb issues this advice as a guideline and, while it will not require any evidence of this standard prior to enrolment on a course, candidates who do not have this standard of English may be disadvantaged.
