Training Courses Module   3

ACRE Evaluative Mediation Training

Accredited mediators often find themselves in mediation where experience and knowledge are called upon. This module will enable a successful candidate to move away from a facilitative model to an evaluative model of mediation.

Module three will develop your technique as an evaluative mediator, building on the skills in traditional facilitative mediation.

If you have successfully completed our ACRE mediation or an accredited mediation course, module three is the natural progression for you.
