Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

There is no certification available for arbitrators, but arbitration professionals can—or may be required—to obtain certification or licensing in their original profession. For example, every state requires that lawyers be admitted to the bar of that state before they can practice. An arbitrator who is also a practicing lawyer must also be admitted to the bar of their state. Some states require arbitrators to complete 20 to 40 hours of training in order to become certified to work on certain types of cases.
