Course for Parenting Coordinators - Fall 2015 Date to be Announced

BCAMI, in conjunction with the BC Parenting Coordinators Roster Society, has established a new training course: "Arbitration Principles for Parenting Coordinators".  It is a 3 day course intended to provide part of the training required under the Family Law Regulations to practice as a parenting coordinator.  It takes account of the unique, hands-on, role of the PC, which involved aspects of both mediation and arbitration, and in which urgency is often an overriding consideration.  A major focus will be on how the rules of natural justice are implemented in a hybrid milieu where a formal hearing is not appropriate.  Decision-writing skills will also be emphasized.  There will be a take-home exam.  The course is open to both lawyers and non-lawyers.  The course is scheduled for 2014 in Vancouver is to be determined.  The faculty will be senior family and arbitration practitioners.  Law Society CPD credits available.



Introducing the new Q.Arb, Q.Med, Q.Fam.Arb and C.Fam.Arb designations available to qualified applicants.  Applicants must be members of BCAMI in good standing.  Please see Professional Designations under the Membership tab for criteria information and application forms.
