Online NC District Court Mediation Training 2023

Become a Certified Mediator through the NC Dispute Resolution Commission

Upon completion you will be able to mediate basic disputes and will be prepared to intervene early in a dispute before the situation escalates. You will also learn ways to prevent problems from recurring. Because this is an interactive, interpersonal skills training, you will become more aware of the effect of conflict in your life, how to identify resources in a conflict, and how to use constructive, collaborative strategies to communicate with those in conflict. By suspending your own judgment and advice you will learn to empower others to find their own solutions. 

How do I become a Certified District Criminal Court Mediator? In November of 2021, the NCDRC approved the process for the certification to include 16 hours of approved classroom training, followed within 12 months by an eight-hour Apprenticeship with a NC Mediation Center, along with observations, mediations, and an application for certification. A criminal background check is required. Please check in with the NC-DRC for more information.

How is this Training provided? The NC-DRC requires that remote trainings limit classroom size to 12 participants, so that everyone is able to interact with the trainer(s) during the presentation, i.e., participants can ask questions and receive answers during the live training session. This Training is held via ZOOM and recorded for NC-DRC auditing purposes only. Participants will receive handouts, exercises, outlines, and slides by email before, during and after the training.

Pre-requisites: no prior training is required, however, to be certified the applicant must have a four-year degree from an accredited college or university; have four years of post-high school education through an accredited college, university, or junior college; have four years of full-time work experience; or have any combination thereof; (or) have two years of experience as a staff or volunteer mediator at a community mediation center.
