We offer the following courses to Accredited Mediators who want to enhance their skills. These are also open to those still pursuing accreditation. These are opportunities to take more specialized training in topics such as a Refresher in Support Law, Refresher in Property Law, or Advanced topics in business valuation and incomes and pensions. We also offer training in Insight Mediation as well as Indigenous approaches to conflict resolution. All courses are offered online via Zoom.

These courses are delivered “live” so questions can be answered and demonstrations are given of how to use various tools as a mediator. Past participants have consistently rated these courses as “excellent” and “extremely helpful”. Lead trainer Jennifer has been described as having an ability to teach legal concepts in a way that is more understandable.
