The Advanced course provided relevant learning in a safe environment for a new mediator. Great instructors; very positive, open to questions and have excellent “real life” examples.

I have the same comment as I had after the Basic course – I’ve never been stretched so far and I have never learned so much.
Tracy Lillie, Manager of Employee & Labour Relations, Durham Regional Police Service, Whitby, ON, Canada
I loved the teaching style. Frequent mediator opportunities were great! Having coaches in each mediation role-play was terrific.
Phillip Kriszenfeld, President, Transitions Mediation and Consulting Group, Dundas, ON, Canada
An excellent learning experience. Having an opportunity to role-play gives me a fuller understanding of what motivates people and how to deal with difficult behaviour and situations. I appreciated the opportunity to access a variety of coaches and learn from their expertise.
Cheryl Nicholls Jones, Union Mediator, Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, Toronto, ON, Canada
The workshop allowed participants to actively practise the process of mediation – facilitating the use of theory in mediating disputes through the effective use of role-plays. The workshop environment was comfortable and very conductive to learning.
Roger Babooram, Human Resource Manager, The Barbados Light & Power Company Limited, St. Michael, Barbados
The workshop provided an excellent opportunity to become comfortable with the mediation process, via several role play scenarios, on the spot coaching and feedback.
