What type of training does a FINRA Arbitrator receive?
What type of training does a FINRA Arbitrator candidate receive? After the initial application process, an arbitrator candidate must successfully complete FINRA’s Basic Arbitrator Training Program before becoming eligible to serve on arbitration cases.
FINRA’s Basic Arbitrator Training Program consists of several parts: an Online Basic Arbitrator Training Course, an Online Expungement Training Course and a Live Video or Onsite Training Session.
In addition to the mandatory, basic arbitrator training program, FINRA offers subject-specific online training modules. Arbitrators who successfully complete FINRA’s training courses will have this noted on their arbitrator Disclosure Reports.
Periodically, FINRA creates subject-specific training on key issues in securities arbitration and requires every arbitrator on its roster to successfully complete the training. Arbitrators are given notice of the training, and given sufficient time within which to fulfill the training requirement. Failure to complete a mandatory training requirement may result in removal from the roster.
