Mediator Skills Training

The CEDR Mediator Skills Training course is a five-day programme of comprehensive tuition in effective dispute resolution where participants are trained in the skills required for effective mediation of commercial disputes and assessed for CEDR Accreditation, internationally recognised as the standard of excellence.

Equipping participants with a broad perspective on conflict management, the programme focuses specifically on the mediation process and the skills required. It includes:

  • a review of dispute resolution methods
  • a comparison of negotiation, arbitration and mediation
  • instruction and practice in mediation skills including the structure and phase of mediation and the necessary communication skills
  • assessment of participants’ mediation skills.

CEDR is accredited as an approved body under the Mediators’ Institute of Ireland and the Law Society’s Mediator Accreditation Scheme in the UK.

Accreditation is based on the assessments of Days 4 and 5. Participants must also complete a three-part written assignment within two weeks of completing the programme. The Certificate of Accreditation is awarded to participants who demonstrate the required level of competence to achieve the status of CEDR Accredited Mediator.
