Conflict Management and Mediation Training
We have partnered with ADR Atlantic Institute (ADRAI) to offer ADRAI members training in conflict management and mediation.
ADRAI members can sign up for any of our online courses without having to sign up for an ADR Institute of Alberta (ADRIA) membership.
I Want to Become a Mediator, Where Do I Start?
If you are looking to start your training to become a mediator, the first course you will need to take is Communications in ADR. This 40-hour course introduces you to conflict conversations and the micro-skills needed to manage these conversations. This course includes a take-home quiz and a role-play skills evaluation.
Once you have successfully completed the Communications in ADR course, the next course is the National Introductory Mediation course. This 40-hour course prepares you to effectively facilitate the interest-based mediation approach to resolving disputes. This course includes a take-home quiz and a role-play skills evaluation.
Once you have completed the basic educational requirements you are strongly encouraged to take private coaching, join practice sessions, and seek practice opportunities in order to strengthen your skills. From there, you can go on to take advanced training in areas such as Separation & Divorce Mediation or High Conflict Mediation. Go to advanced mediation training for more courses.
How to Register for Courses
Before registering for courses, you will need an ADRIA membership. As an ADRAI member, you will get an ADRIA organizational learner membership at no cost. There is no application process, simply signup as an Associate Member and select invoice (do not pay). Then email email@example.com to notify us that you have signed up and introduce yourself as an ADRAI member. Once we connect with ADRAI to confirm your membership, we will change your membership and void the membership invoice.
Once you have signed up for a membership then you can register for courses. You do not need to wait for ADRIA and ADRAI to confirm your membership to register. Our class sizes are small and many of our courses tend to fill up quickly, so we recommend you sign up early. For our Communications in ADR and National Introductory Mediation courses, we will add new dates as the courses fill up. Advanced courses are typically only offered once per year. Note: all course hours are Mountain time.
