Civil Mediation Training
Sorry, this course is inactive. Please contact our office to see if it will be reinstated, or if alternative classes are available.
Mediation is no longer the new kid on the block. Every day, courts use mediation to ease clogged dockets. Business people see that conflict management systems reduce internal conflicts and improve customer relations. More and more, people are hearing that mediation is faster and less costly than litigation, both in terms of money and emotional costs. Mediation results in greater compliance and satisfaction with the outcome.
Civil Mediation is a 40-hour course and covers employment, contract, business, personal injury, sexual harassment and community issues.
Crossover training is available for mediators who have already taken a Rule 31 training.
Family to civil is 16 hours.
Meeting dates are September 11, 12, 13, 26 and 27, 2014.
