Is there a licensing requirement for arbitrators?

Some states have set minimum requirements for arbitrators, and some organizations have set standards for arbitrators. After the arbitrator achieves those standards, he or she will be "certified" by the organization. To learn more about the standards, it is best to contact the arbitration association that is in question. Also, when contacting the arbitration association, you may be able to retrieve a rating or report on a specific arbitrator’s performance as a professional.
