Update on Mediate.com Mediator Certification Program

The Mediate.com Mediator Certification Program has been updated. You can access a complete description of the program at www.mediate.com/Certification. Approved Certified Mediators can be identified in Mediate.com Directory Searches at www.mediate.com/Search and are listed here: www.mediate.com/Certified.

Please also review the Program Principles and Values and the Certification Program FAQ.

Mediate.com has acted to implement our Mediator Certification Program to establish best practice qualification disclosure standards for the growing global mediation industry.

This is not a program for mediators so much as it is a program for consumers and their advisers. By setting high standards and by being sure that all mediator information is capably presented, we believe that we provide added value to consumers looking for information to help them make their best mediator selection.

Critically, we believe that well-informed disputants can protect themselves and that the mediation industry does not need traditional licensing approaches to professional mediation credentialing. This is especially true with so many mediation practice areas and styles of mediation practice. Mediate.com is seeking to implement a realistic and sustainable “disclosure best practices” program.

We welcome your ideas for further improving the Mediate.com Certification Program. Comments and questions should be sent to: admin@mediate.com

We hope that you will apply for Mediate.com Mediator Certification at www.mediate.com/Certification.
