Our Mediation Skills Course

A Mediation Training Provider with a 100% Recommendation Rate

If you’re looking to undertake some form of training in mediation with the flexibility to train from home, in your own time; then this course is for you.

This mediation skills course provides training in the essential skills and techniques in mediation leading to a certificate upon successful completion.

Essentially a condensed version of our 40 hour distance learning course, this skills course is a self-paced course which you complete from home. Unlike our distance learning course, however, this training does not result in an accredited professional qualification, but a certificate of completion instead - to confirm you have completed some basic training in mediation.

"I thought the Align Mediation course was fantastic. I was able to do it remotely alongside my job, which was a real benefit. My trainer was very motivating and provided me with constructive feedback each session. This approach fitted excellently alongside the informative training manuals provided. I look forward to continue developing my skills as a mediator, as I strongly believe that out-of-court dispute resolution can be hugely beneficial to clients in many circumstances."

“For health reasons, I had to retire a few months ago having spent the previous fifty years in full time veterinary practice. Coming to terms with that situation forced me to look for a new intellectual challenge and whilst researching possibilities on the internet, I came across Align Mediation. Knowing that a distance-learning option of the 5 day course was available, I signed up. The course proved to be all I had wished with the added benefit of learning a new skill at an advanced age. Being able to fit the training into my available time at home suited me well and my personal tutor, Harry, was a great support throughout and always available for help and advice. The on-line video lectures were well-structured and easy to follow. I can thoroughly recommend this distance-learning course for anyone wanting to study mediation.”

“Whilst completing the Align Mediation distance learning course I was provided with a tutor (Harry) who was a good source of support and information. I found the course itself straight forward, informative and manageable. The videos that are provided as part of the course material bring the experience to life and reflected the course material well. I would highly recommend undertaking this distance learning course, and Align Mediation.”

“I found Align Mediation very helpful in training me as a mediator. The fact that they provided the option of distance learning with skype tutorials and assessments was of particular value to me to allow me to fit the training around my other work as a consultant to the legal industry.”
