5 or 4 day CMC Accredited Civil & Commercial Mediation Course

Taking place over 5 or 4 days but with the same 40 hour length on completion you will be a CMC accredited mediator and so our mediation training courses are an excellent way to gain your mediation certification.

This course will develop skills in mediation, and teach you to work as a Civil and Commercial mediator. The course meets all the requirements of the core training for CMC registration. It is delivered as a mixture of practical hands-on sessions and taught content, all delivered by experienced and skilled mediation trainers.

All of our mediation trainers are practising mediators and have carried out not just private mediate sessions but have advised, designed and run government mediation services. They bring not just experience but a passion for mediation and so our courses are widely considered to be the best mediation training available. 

As we do not make a profit on our mediation training we are able to offer significantly lower costs on our courses including our Central London mediation training than other CMC accredited mediation schools including; CEDR, Align mediation, Pro-mediate, London School of Mediation and UCLan.

When training with us, you receive not just your foundation training but you become a member of our family. How many other schools provide you with this level of onward support.

  • Day 1: We introduce the practice and process of mediation before practising some of the necessary communication skills to secure parties trust and make them comfortable with the process

Day 2: We look at the theory of negotiation and the differences in negotiation styles

Day 3: Concentrating on the negotiation stage, we look at the theory of conflict and how to break deadlock

Day 4: Looking to the practicalities of life as a mediator we look at the ethics of mediation before looking at how to register as a mediator in the UK

Day 5: Practice and assessments  

Mediation is a fast growing discipline. On completion you will be able to work as a civil mediator, the range of work in this field is huge. Civil mediators undertake sessions in many different settings ranging from workplace disputes to clinical negligence. 

As a provider, our bread and butter is commercial disputes such as contract issues that are either in court or will be litigated in the alternative. Our work however is extensive and covers very specialised areas such as Court of Protection mediation and the SEND mediation service we provide to Local Authorities across the UK. 

As a Civil and Commercial Mediator there are many potential ways to practice. Often delegates will mediate as part of their current firm, or undertake workplace mediations between colleagues. Others will join a panel, or multiple panels and secure work that way; some will go into business as a solo practitioner and many have made very good livings from this. 

As with all business earnings are based on many variables such as marketing and level of work undertaken. However there is a demand for mediation currently and there are over 10,000 independent mediation sessions carried out per year outside of contracted services. 

However you choose to undertake your career in mediation, you will find it an enjoyable and rewarding career. Mediation is one of the few roles where you can go home knowing that not only have you earned a decent living, but that you have made a positive difference in parties lives. 

National Dispute Resolution are always here to assist at every stage of your career.
