Details of the Mediation Training: The training consists of fourteen hours of On Demand Training that participants can take anywhere and at any time. The On Demand Training allows you to take control of your own mediation training at a time and place that suits you. The remaining six hours of civil mediation training consists of live interactive training with our principal trainer who has been mediating and teaching mediation skills since 1990. The six hours of live, synchronous, interactive, online training will take place in the afternoons over two days that are chosen by our staff. Thus, enrollees will receive three hours of live training on two different days. To register for our 20 Hours of Civil and Family Mediation Training, click here.
Our next "live, in person" 40-hour (5 day) family and divorce mediation training is scheduled to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law on August 10-14, 2020. After this training, qualified professionals who are licensed as attorneys, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family counselors, professional counselors, or clergymen will have all the training they need to become qualified mediators in Louisiana. Please note that the term “certified mediator” does not exist in Louisiana as Louisiana does not certify mediators. After taking our training, you will be “qualified” to conduct all types of family and civil mediations.
Lawyers in Louisiana and Mississippi who want to be civil mediators will benefit from our two days of mediation training. Remember that Louisiana does not regulate the private practice of civil mediation. But most lawyers may wish to take a two-day program like ours to learn the essentials of civil mediation.
Also, note that Mississippi requires mediators who want to be on the Mississippi Bar ADR Register of Mediators to have fourteen hours of mediation training and six hours every two years thereafter. For more information about the requirements for mediators in Mississippi, click here.
