Become a Certified (MII) Mediator (7 days)

Become a Certified (MII) Mediator (7 days)

The experience and research in Ireland and right around the world is showing how mediation is a much less damaging process in managing disputes…Why?

Crucially because its the parties to the dispute who find their own solutions rather than a judge or arbitrator deciding for them..

What should you look for in a course to become a Certified Mediator?

First of all that it’s a Mediators Institute of Ireland certified one as ours is – to ensure it’s recognition in Ireland and abroad – we are also certified by the International Mediation Institute giving you significant credibility as a mediator.

At the centre of any course needs to be that you the participant is mediating from day one – that you are practicing your mediation skills on this 60 hour programme as soon and as much as possible.

It is in the carefully facilitated practice of mediation that you find your way of mediating effectively – having experienced trainers who are also practiced mediators themselves ( we have two on each of our programmes) is vital in the competence and confidence building of you as a mediator whatever your professional or personal background..

Obviously having a good venue, being well looked after with a hot lunch etc and crucially the managing of a good learning dynamic with your fellow participants is going to be key.

Those who successfully complete this course will be qualified to apply to the Mediators Institute of Ireland to become a certified mediator.
