Mediator Certifications Overview

Mediation participants select mediators that they trust. Certification is available to our Premium and Featured Members and confirms your reputation as a trusted mediator.

Here is how Certification works:  

  • ensures that a Certified Mediator is trained and experienced;
  • A Certified Mediator must first join as a Premium Member or Featured Member.
  • Mediate then insists upon complete information disclosure and transparency for a Certified Mediator;
  • Mediate further requires the highest mediation ethical standards and that a mediator’s references are made available; and
  • Mediate investigates complaints made against any Certified Mediator.

Our core concept is that fully-informed disputants can protect themselves! 

Our Mediator Certification Program requires that a Premium or Featured Member has at least 100 hours of mediation training and at least 200 hours of mediation case experience. Further, our Certified Mediators must disclose their training and case experience to consumers. also requires that our Certified Mediators:

  • identify professional organizations and affiliations;
  • confirm whether or not they have active liability insurance; and
  • verify at least 12 hours of annual mediation continuing education.

No mediator is asked to disclose any confidential information as part of the Certification Process.
