Accelerated Route to Fellowship - Construction AdjudicationChartered Institute of Arbitrators
Accelerated Route to Fellowship - Construction Adjudication
To provide a fast-track route towards Fellowship through the Construction Adjudication Pathway. The Accelerated Route towards Fellowship has been designed for busy, legally qualified professionals who have substantial unassessed knowledge and experience of construction adjudication. The aim of the programme is to assess whether or not the candidate has the knowledge required to apply the principles and procedure of construction adjudication and is capable of writing an reasoned and enforceable Decision.
Candidates must evaluate their personal suitability to undertake the programme, appreciating that the assessments are intensive and that they will be assessed against standard benchmarks.
This programme focuses on the process, key documents and procedures in construction adjudication – with the exception of writing a reasoned Decision. It is an essential requirement for qualification as a Fellow and for those who aim to practice as a construction adjudicator.
How is the programme delivered?
This is an assessment programme as opposed to a teaching module. Learning will be based on private study prior to the oral assessment workshop, reinforced by tutor input and peer discussion during the workshop.
The programme is delivered over a period of three days, with assessment workshops on days one and two. On day three candidates sit a 4 hour examination. The programme dates advertised are the dates when candidates will be required to attend the assessment workshops.
Suitability - Who should attend?
This Accelerated Route to Fellowship in Adjudication was designed for busy and experienced legally qualified professionals who have a law qualification and substantial knowledge of adjudication. The course is also suitable for those with adjudication practice experience.
The training programme has been devised to take into account, knowledge and experience gained through academic and practical means.
In order to register onto the Accelerated Route to Fellowship, candidates must:
- have a relevant legal qualification such as a degree or diploma in law or hold a legal practice certificate;
- have obtained an exemption through a relevant course offered by a CIArb Recognised Course Provider or a course offered by a CIArb Branch;
- have substantial knowledge of construction adjudication.
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.
