This 40-hour training program (830AM – 6PM each of the five days of class) combines lecture, discussion, and a heavy emphasis on role-playing to promote comprehensive understanding and practical skills development for the mediator selected/ordered to mediate a circuit civil action. Among the topics covered:
Trainee cancellations more than two weeks prior to the class start date will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee, unless applied towards tuition for the next subsequent training; trainee cancellations on less notice (including, without limitation, failure to attend class) will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee; requests for waiver of the cancellation fee due to emergency will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Attendance substitutions are permitted up to one day prior to the start date of the session. Enrollment is limited to 40 participants per course. Less than minimum enrollment may lead to postponement; registration fees previously collected will be applied towards the next training offered or a refund will be granted without penalty.
