About the Programme

HKIAC is the first arbitral institution to offer a Tribunal Secretary Training Programme.  As an extension of HKIAC’s tribunal secretary service, the Programme trains the next generation of qualified tribunal secretaries around the world.

The Programme is taught by a world-class faculty and overseen by a Senior Advisory Board.

The training typically takes one and a half days, during which part of the participants work will be assessed. A further written exam will follow the training. Participants who successfully pass the written assessment will be interviewed by a member of the Board or Faculty.  Participants who have passed both the written and oral exam will receive a certificate of completion and will be listed online subject to his/her consent.
