FAMILY MEDIATION TRAINING COURSES
All of our courses have been accredited by the Ontario Association for Family Mediation and are accepted by leading organizations as meeting the standards required to become a family mediator.
It is important to note that in Ontario one of the pre-requisites to becoming an Accredited or Certified Family Mediator is the level of education or experience you have. You can find more about this requirement here. If you have any questions about this we would be happy to discuss them with you, or you could attend our How to be a Family Mediator webcast. It is also important to know which courses you need to take. If you are a practicing Family Law Lawyer, you need to take Courses 1, 3, 4 and 5. If you are not a family law lawyer, you must take Course 2 (Family Law) as well. If you have a degree in social work or psychology, you do not need to take Course 5 (Family Relations).
Regardless of which courses you must take, the final step in becoming accredited or certified in Ontario and other provinces is the supervised practical experience requirement. This is either 100 hours of working directly with an Accredited Mediator so you can obtain experience by observing, co-mediating and mediating five cases to agreement, or you can take 80 of these hours in the new Simulated Role Play Course. For more information about this final requirement, please review the information about that program here.
