ADRIC’s Chartered and Qualified designations are nationally recognized levels of achievement signifying a practitioner meets specific professional criteria, keeps current in the field, and adheres to a professional Code of Ethics. Provincially and nationally, they represent both an achievement and a responsibility for the individual practitioner. They also reflect a conviction that the professional practices of mediation and arbitration can safeguard the interests of the parties and the general public.
As of January 1, 2021 all designated Arbitrators and Mediators are required to document their education and professional ADR engagement activities (we call it Continuing Education and Engagement – CEE) in the field and submit a report annually by December 31st. The Instructions below contain the points awarded for a comprehensive list of activities.
- Practitioners holding a Qualified designation are required to acquire 20 points annually.
- Practitioners holding a Chartered designation are required to acquire 33 points annually
- Those holding both a Chartered and a Qualified designation are to remit the greater level of points: 33
