Testimonials

"I was impressed with how much I learned during this process. Before this course I didn't think I would be ready to begin my mediation practicum, but now I'm looking forward to it!"


"After 30 years practicing law, I expected this course was only a requirement that I had to check off to transition into mediation. This course helped me to understand my clients better and taught me my style as a mediator."


"I feel like there was a 'take away' that I will use from every single component of the training. Thank you."


 "I always enjoy a training where the instructor is prepared, is knowledgeable, covers all the material expected, considers different learning styles, and follows a pre-set agenda with still being flexible and in-tune with the needs of the individual. I learned a lot and enjoyed the whole week!"

This is a Basic 40-hour Mediation Training which satisfies most state and court basic mediation requirements.

This course is approved for 40 hours of continuing mediation credit in Washington state and 40 hours of CLE credit in California--and reciprocally in many other states.  Upon completion of the course, the participant will receive a Certificate of Completion.
