This 40-hour training is for those interested in becoming a community mediator and introduces the structures, process, formats, and necessary capacities, and communication skills of facilitative mediation. We emphasize an interactive and engaging experience and extensive practice and coaching by trainers and experienced mediators. Participants will receive a printed student manual prior to the start of training and a certificate upon completion.
Training graduates are encouraged to apply to join our roster of volunteer mediators who work on community mediations. Mediators also have the opportunity to become involved in restorative justice, Small Claims Court, youth, housing, and other kinds of specialized mediation that the CRC offers. Participants find that skills learned also greatly benefit their interactions at work, at home, and in the community.
Along with the prerequisite 6-hour Conflict Management Skills Training, the 34 hours of community meditation adds up to 40 hours of total training fulfilling the requirements of the Dispute Resolution Programs Act (DRPA) to become qualified as a community mediator.
We are a NAFCM Certified Center to offers Community Mediation training. Please contact us if you'd like private Community Mediation training for your group of 15 or more participants.
Prerequisite: Conflict Management Skills Training (6 hrs). This training is offered multiple times each year and once in conjunction with the Community Mediation Training.
