MEDIATION TRAINING SERVICES

Be sure to check with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution to ensure you take these trainings in the order required for registration if you seek to become a court-connected mediator. www.godr.org


What sets my trainings apart from others? I have mediated well over 10,000 civil and domestic cases inside and outside of Georgia. I continually conduct research regarding mediation techniques and strategies and incorporate cutting edge knowledge into every training I conduct. You will learn how to build your mediation and ADR practice, how to get on rosters, and how to provide ethical and fulfilling mediation services. Mediation is a calling. It is not a way to get rich quick but you can do well and make a living as a mediator. I look forward to working with you as you embark on your mediation career!
