The detailed weekly course agenda spanning the eight weeks is
available for viewing at this link. Detailed Weekly Agenda
The agenda is designed to assist in the steady progression of the course with respect to online discussion and in-person sessions. It is expected an average weekly time commitment will include 2 hours of video content and at approximately 1 hour of online training or in-person training.
VIDEO content is produced and presented by James Melamed of Mediate.Com and available to each student to view on their own. Each video section contains a component that each student will utilize to prove that the video was viewed, along with extensive outline and curriculum. It is expected that each student will spend approximately 2 hours each week involved with video content all in preparation for discussion participation and role-playing.
DISCUSSIONS will utilize a forum such as WordPress, so that a topic will be presented for discussion, allowing each student to participate fully (posting and replying to others) in the discussion.
All ZOOM DISCUSSIONS are conducted Saturdays. Zoom discussions and role-play will occur June 11, June 18, July 9, July 16, and July 23. [A bye week exists for Independence Day].
The July 9 Negotiation Role-Play Workshop on July 9 allows for building stronger interest-digging skills and networking.
FULL ATTENDANCE POLICY: Failure to participate in minimum video viewing and facet of training adversely affects committed participants’ efforts to obtain practical experience and certification. The format nature of this course allows great flexibility of time throughout a given week. Therefore, any student failing to participate in any viewing of required video, discussion, and/or role play (either in person or by Zoom on scheduled Saturdays) will risk loss of ability to obtain certificate of attendance for Montana Mediation Association’s additional family mediator certification.
