This online Certified Mediator program will give you just the start you're looking for in mediation. Offered in partnership with Mediators without Borders®, this online program offers a highly comprehensive mediation education that can help you advance in your present job, add a sought after skill to your resume, or set up a private practice as a Certified Mediator.
As you progress through the program, you'll have the opportunity to learn about conflict styles, pre-negotiation, communication, and the stages of mediation (from beginning to the end). In addition, you'll have the opportunity to practice your new skills with a 60-hour online internship where you can role-play your way through mediation sessions. In these moderated webinars, you'll have the chance to serve as the mediator, disputant, or observer; it's perfect preparation for the real world of mediating.
Please note that anyone can mediate a dispute. Our training is focused on those pursuing conflict resolution training as an International Mediator, Generalist, or Conflict Coach. In addition, it's appropriate for those pursuing mediation roles in Workplace, Healthcare, Eldercare, and Construction settings. If you want to become a court ordered mediator in a particular state for court-mandated cases, please contact your state's supreme court for their requirements.
Upon registering, you're given an initial six months to complete this program. Should you need more time beyond the six months, an extension of six months is available with a fee of $199.
