The Advanced Certificate is designed to cover in-depth the key areas that experienced tribunal adjudicators have identified as essential to their professional development.

A joint program of the Society of Ontario Adjudicators and Regulators (SOAR) and Osgoode Professional Development – the creators of acclaimed Certificate in Adjudication for Administrative Agencies, Boards and Tribunals – the Advanced Certificate in Adjudication will take your skills to the next level. 

The modular design of the certificate allows you to customize your learning pathway and take programs in the precise areas that you need to develop.

Who Should Attend

Graduates of the SOAR/OsgoodePD Certificate in Adjudication;

Those with two or more years of full-time experience as an adjudicator, OR an equivalent amount of experience as a part-time adjudicator;

Senior tribunal staff, such as counsel, who work closely with adjudicators and would benefit from advanced training in adjudication.

“A great practical program for new adjudicators, those interested in becoming adjudicators or those who appear before adjudicators! The program laid the framework for fair and effective adjudication. The presenters were knowledgeable and engaging, and the practitioners provided some very valuable tips and feedback.”
