How to join us

Join CIArb today by filling in our online application form or apply for CIArb membership in writing by downloading the application form and sending it to our member services team. CIArb Membership Application Form.pdf.

At CIArb we understand that our members come to us from a great variety of backgrounds. We therefore offer three different grades of membership (Associate, Member, and Fellow) depending on your particular skills, knowledge and experience. With the help of our world-renowned training scheme, there are many opportunities to upgrade to another level of membership as your ADR experience develops.

Use our Level Finder to calculate which level of membership is best for your skills and experience. While you won't be asked to state which membership level you are applying for when you complete the application form, it is important that you demonstrate enough experience and qualifications for us to find the right level for you. If you need a little more experience before joining, our level finder can help you work out which course you need to complete before applying for CIArb membership as well as which course you should take if you wish to upgrade to a higher level of membership.

The annual membership fee is dependent on the grade of membership and your country of residence. Use our fee calculator to find the right membership fee for you.

If you have any questions or would like assistance with an application, please contact our member services team T: +44 (0)207 421 7447.
