Arbitration / Training
The Training Course for Case Managers and Arbitrators
Lesson 80 - Training - DRO Notes
Board passed two motions that affect how training is to be managed within teams :-
Team leaders to manage training Team members when they are appointed by board are full team members, however the team leader may and should if he sees reason to do so order that team members take some training in form of lessons, ATEs and such. This does not void the capability of the team member in any way, if there are reasons to take such measures they are to be handled the same as resignations and such and to be referred to the entity that can add or remove people
Advise all teams to think about training processes Advise all teams to think about training processes and if necessary define and document them
The first board motion makes the current arbitrarily introduced and undocumented practice of an arbitrator being "in training" and his/her rulings subject to change by a "supervising arbitrator" inconsistent with the Board's direction and I therefore remove this status from all members of the arbitration team with immediate effect. Any actions taken prior to this date by an arbitrator classed as "in training" or by a "supervising arbitrator" remain in effect.
Basic training has been defined elsewhere in the past, and a more detailed and documented process will be introduced in the next section.
