The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has unveiled plans to host its first dispute resolution training event in Doha, Qatar later this month.

The event, which will include ‘ACRE mediation’ and ‘expert witness’ courses, will be conducted by the RICS Dispute Resolution Service (DRS).

The training sessions will be hosted over a two-week period from 24 January, 2016.

Commenting on the importance of effective dispute resolution training within Qatar’s construction market, Yasmine Nashawati, manager of RICS DRS, said: “Having run the courses successfully in Dubai, bringing them to Doha was a logical step.

“With the number of megaprojects currently ongoing in Qatar, alternative methods of dispute resolution are key to avoiding costly delays. Both courses are aimed at professionals in the built environment, and provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the implications of becoming an expert witness and accredited mediator,” she added.

RICS’ Doha-based ‘ACRE mediation’ course will take place from 24-28 January, 2016, and will train delegates to use robust, cost-effective methods to resolve disputes. The ‘expert witness’ training event will run from 7-10 February, 2016, and will focus on built environment professionals, who are often called upon to act as expert witnesses in court or arbitration proceedings.

In addition to training, RICS is looking to recruit experienced industry professionals to join the Middle East branch of its President’s Panel of Dispute Resolvers and Expert Witnesses. Last year, members of this panel were appointed to a number of high-value, complex disputes across the region. The successful completion of RICS’ Doha courses will contribute towards panel membership.
