Revisions

Title: Certified Mediator and Arbitrator

Students will learn the three phases that are used in the InAccord® model: pre-interview, mediation procedure, and post interview. Then, they will apply this knowledge to simulated role plays, focused on workplace and commercial disputes. Students will learn a similar model for the Mediators Without Borders® Arbitration training. Arbitration differs from mediation in that an arbitrator actually renders decisions in disputes whereas a mediator facilitates a collaborative solution designed by the parties in dispute. As part of the arbitration training, you will learn how to facilitate a hearing, weigh evidence and testimony, and render an award.

The outline of this program has been updated to better reflect the program content.
