Our Distance Learning Course

A Mediation Training Provider with a 100% Recommendation Rate

Training to become a mediator is an exciting yet sometimes daunting prospect... Apart from choosing which provider to go with, you’ve got the other important factors to weigh up such as the quality of the qualification you receive, making time to complete a training programme, and of course, cost.

We think we’ve got the solution in helping you to decide whether training to become a mediator is right for you. Our distance learning mediation training course provides you with a professional qualification in mediation, is competitively priced, and gives you the flexibility to train from home, in your own time.

This distance learning mediation training course is the same as our 5 day course in terms of course content, but is accredited by CPD Standards rather than the Civil Mediation Council.

Malcolm Crapper

“When I first enrolled onto the distance learning course, I was a bit apprehensive about what the experience would be like. I can honestly say my reservations were unfounded. The course content was clear, concise and easily digestible at your own pace. The assessment process was geared to self-learning and the support from all at Align Mediation was first class. I have no hesitation in recommending the course to anybody.”

Jo-Anne Scott

"As someone who had carried out mediations previously I had always wanted to become an accredited Mediator. Doing the Distance Learning course with Align Mediation during the COVID-19 lockdown completely at my own pace was perfect for me as I also had the challenges of home schooling at the time! I now have more confidence professionally and having completed all my assignments over Zoom, it has given me the confidence to start offering my mediation services remotely. I would highly recommend the Distance Learning course to anyone who is completely new to mediation or to someone like myself who has carried out mediations previously and wishes to become accredited."

“I got a lot out of this course. It is built around a process that provided me with a secure framework for dealing with a challenging task. The tutoring was first rate. I did the online version, and was pushed hard by my tutor to notice what I was doing and how I could be more effective. By the time I did the final assessment I was feeling confident. More importantly, I believe I now have the basic tools to start working as a mediator.”

“I had been looking for a training provider in Mediation for some time when I came across the Align website. I was originally considering the residential course but as I run a business this was not a suitable option for me and so I opted for the distance learning course. I found the course content to be of very high quality and the video sessions which are filmed from previous residential courses gave a feeling of greater involvement in the course. I found the Training Manager Harry to be extremely professional and helpful throughout the assessment sessions and very supportive as I approached the final assessment. I would thoroughly recommend Align Mediation as a training provider in Civil and Commercial Mediation.”

"I completed my Mediation Training with Align Mediation through distance learning. This worked very well for me. I was sent all the teaching materials I needed and Harry was allocated as my online tutor.

The materials were easy to read and the DVD’s of the taught lessons from the residential course were really helpful. I was able to contact my tutor easily and tutorials and Module assessments were easy to arranged and carried out over Skype as was my final practical assessment.

I chose to complete the course over a week as I would have done if I had taken the residential option. I don’t feel I missed out in any way by gaining my accreditation in this way. I would thoroughly recommend Align Mediation to those interested in qualifying as a mediator."
