 The 2019 Professional Executive Master of Appropriate Dispute Resolution (PEM ADR), run by the Gamey and Gamey ADR Institute takes off this Saturday, promising to offer more advanced training for ADR practice.

As one of the longest running ADR training programmes in Africa, the PEM ADR course has produced some of the best ADR practitioners in Ghana.

After an induction ceremony for the 2019 Cohort was held on February 23, 2019, the participants have undergone preparation to ensure a successful programme.

According to the managers of the programme, enrolment is still open for prospective participants, and arrangements have been made to accommodate additional participants who have expressed interest.

Mr Austin Gamey, Chief Executive Officer of Gamey and Gamey Group, told ADR Daily that this year’s course would be unique since significant changes have been made to the training process.

“The programme will witness a significant transformation,” he said, adding that because the course is an international programme, the high training standard has to be maintained.

He explained that the 26-weeks programme would be more interactive and more role plays that would build the mediation and arbitration skill set of the students.

Similar to previous years, professionals from diverse backgrounds are participating in this year’s programme. The participants are made up of lawyers, human resource managers, bankers, security officers, media practitioners, traditional leaders, religious leaders, union leaders, business executives, court registrars and governance experts.

As the highest level of professional ADR training in Africa, the course is run in collaboration with University of Virgin Islands (UVI-PULSE), USA.

Since its inception 16 years ago, the ADR Institute has trained over 400 professionals for ADR practice.
