Course description

Accelerated Route to Membership - Construction Adjudication

This course aims to provide a fast-track route to Membership through the Construction Adjudication Pathway. The Accelerated Route to Membership has been designed for busy, legally qualified professionals who have some unassessed knowledge of construction adjudication. The aim of the programme is to assess whether the candidate has the knowledge required to understand the process of construction adjudication.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The Accelerated Route to Membership has been designed for busy, legally qualified professionals who have some unassessed knowledge of construction adjudication.

In order to register for the Accelerated Route to Membership, candidates must:

  • have successfully completed and passed Module 1 Law of Obligations and Civil Evidence, a relevant course offered by a CIArb Recognised Course Provider or a course offered by a CIArb Branch or have obtained an exemption through a relevant legal qualification such as a degree or diploma in law or hold a legal practice certificate;
  • have some knowledge of construction adjudication.

English Language Competence - CIArb training and assessment is carried out in English it is therefore essential that candidates are proficient in both written and spoken English. Where English is not a candidate’s first language it is recommended that they have achieved a standard that is, as a minimum, equivalent to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) level 7 or a score of 94-101 in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) system. CIArb issues this advice as a guideline and, while it will not require any evidence of this standard prior to enrolment on a course, candidates who do not have this standard of English may be disadvantaged.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Assessment of this programme is split into three parts:

  • Assessment 1 - An interactive 1 day assessment in a series of workshops, where situations will be presented to candidates in groups for their consideration. Candidate’s knowledge, judgment and interactive/self-presentation skills are assessed by oral exercises.
  • Assessment 2 - A written assignment to be submitted before the programme (20%).
  • Assessment 3 - A 3-hour closed book examination (80%).

Details of the assessment are as follows:

  • Assessment 1 (Workshop). This assessment is on a pass or fail basis. Candidates must pass all the workshop sessions. Candidates who fail the workshop will be required to re-sit this assessment.
  • Assessment 2 (Assignment). This assessment is not on a pass or fail basis. The mark achieved will contribute up to 20% of the final mark.
  • Assessment 3 (Examination). This assessment is on a pass or fail basis. Candidates must achieve a minimum of 55%. Candidates who fail the examination will be required to re-sit the examination.
  • The overall assessment is based upon the combined marks of Assessment 2 and Assessment 3. Candidates must achieve a minimum overall mark of 55% to pass the programme.

Candidates are permitted to use any materials they wish throughout the workshops. The examination is closed book however candidates will be allowed to an unmarked copy of the relevant Act and Scheme. Highlighting and underlining is permitted.

Results are dispatched to candidates normally eight to twelve weeks from the date of the submission of the examination.
