Become a Certified (MII/IMI) Mediator (7 days)

The experience and research 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 programme to become a Certified Mediator?

First of all that it’s a Mediators Institute of Ireland certified and/or International Mediation Institute programme – ours has both certifications – to ensure it’s recognition in Ireland and abroad – this unique dual certification that we in MFI offer gives you significant credibility as a mediator.

At the centre of any programme 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.

Those who successfully complete this programme will be qualified to apply to the Mediators Institute of Ireland and/or to the International Mediation Institute to become a recognised as a qualified mediator.
