Online Civil Mediation Training
May 20, 21, 22, 26, 27 & 29, 2020
During these days of a national pandemic, we've taken our training from in person face-to-face to the virtual classroom. It's easy to access and can be accomplished from the comfort of your own home/office. No need for travel expenses. Yes, it's a little different. We break up the 40-hour week with 8-hour per day sessions into something more manageable; two weeks with two (2) three-hour (3 hr.) sessions per day; 3 days per week. It's fun, interactive, and casual. You learn a lot and get to know others in an intimate setting.
