HomeArbitrationTribunal SecretariesTribunal Secretary Training Programme

HKIAC is the first arbitral institution to offer a Tribunal Secretary Training Programme (the “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 (the "Faculty") and overseen by a Senior Advisory Board (the “Board”).  Members of the Faculty and the Board are listed below.

The training typically takes one and a half day, followed by a written exam and an interview with a member of the Board or Faculty.  Participants who have passed both the exam and the interview will receive a certificate of completion.
