FAQs

Successful completion of this course and an additional 20 hours of “lab” observation and co-mediation in semi-monthly small claims magistrate court qualifies participants to serve as volunteer mediators for the Midlands Mediation Center (MMC). If choosing the 40-hour option, you will need to complete a MMC volunteer mediator application after the classroom portion.

Disclaimer: Completion of this training course does not result in a certification in mediation nor does it provide an expectation of work or income from mediation.
