NEXT  MEDIATOR  TRAINING

  September 20-21st 

We will start  training with Basic Mediation  which teaches conflict resolution techniques and helps students develop listening skills. We conduct this training through classwork , as well as role playing. You will need to attend both classes- Friday  20th evening and all day Saturday 21st.

There is no charge for training.

An interview and an application  with references  and background check will be needed in advance of training.

Basic training is the first component of all four programs.

After completion,  student may then choose program specific training which they are most interested in. 

Upon completing program specific training, students participate in an apprenticeship with a experienced mediators for several mediations until both the student and the CMS staff feel comfortable with their skills.

Student are asked to commit to mediating for CMS for at least one year with a minimum of 1 mediation a month. 

Classes  starting  in September   will  begin with BASIC followed  by  an option for Attendance Mediation Training and then Access and Visitation mediation later in October. 

Mediations  take place at locations we partner with throughout the county and usually in the evenings for Access and Visitation Mediation to accommodate both parents and mediator schedules. 

Attendance Mediations will take place during the school days at the student’s school
