Become an Arbitrator


The goal of arbitration is to resolve business/consumer disputes quickly and economically as an alternative to the court system. Accordingly, arbitrating is a professional activity requiring excellent written, verbal, listening, fact-finding and logical reasoning skills. Attorneys or individuals with prior arbitration experience in another forum are eligible to serve as BBB arbitrators upon completion of BBB training.

Arbitrator Training Information

BBB dispute resolution training programs are developed and conducted by staff trainers who have extensive experience in dispute resolution and are active in the field. 


If you are a trained mediator and would like to volunteer for your BBB, please contact them directly to determine whether they offer mediation services, and to get more information about any specific training requirements.  Look up your local BBB branch. The Council of Better Business Bureaus does not maintain a national roster of mediators and does not have mediation cases for volunteer mediators.


If you meet the requirements and you would like to become an arbitrator, please fill out our online application.

And check our calendar for arbitrator trainings currently scheduled for BBB AUTO LINE.
