This course meets the requirements for Texas Tax Code Sect. 41A.06 through the Texas Comptroller’s real estate tax program, and it meets and exceeds all other requirements for arbitration programs, especially the Better Business Bureau’s consumer and the AutoLine programs, as well as FINRA, Texas Department of Insurance, Federal Surprise Billing, Texas Education Agency, Family-Divorce cases, Federal, City, County, and all other national and international arbitration panels and opportunities.


Expand your ADR horizons! Most arbitration panels prefer that the arbitrator also has taken 40 hours of basic mediation training. However, this course can be taken before the 40 class hours of basic mediation.
