Mediation Foundation Skills Training

by Amanda on June 12, 2009

I am often asked which is the best commercial mediation skills training course. My answer is that you will be hard pushed to find better than the course run by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

At this point I acknowledge a potential bias since I have been part of the faculty since its inception in 2003. However, I can honestly say that I would not be part of the faculty if I did not think it an excellent course.

When enquiring, you might ask for some examples of feedback from previous participants. There may even be some who will be willing to speak with you about their experience.

In terms of success rates for accreditation: The reasons for not being accredited are either lack of confidence or a surfeit of confidence. The former prevents people from being their best and the latter often results in “reverting to type” when under pressure of exam conditions.

In my next post I have some tips for dealing with the assessment.
