Advanced International Mediation Training course
(5 Days/50 hours)
Mediation International offers this course to individuals and organizations involved in international negotiations. This course is facilitated by international mediation professionals from Canada, Argentina and Europe.
Our training affords the participants with the opportunity to experience training at an international level meeting international standards. Our training prepares mediators to practice not only at the community level but also internationally, working with companies and organizations worldwide.
The training combines ADR theory with practice.
As with all our courses, the participants will have ample opportunity to practice the skills learned simulations and role-plays. Our courses are ‘hands-on’ and interactive. At MEDIATION INTERNATIONAL, we believe that all participants require an understanding in the theoretical aspects of mediation and negotiation (which is why there is a pre-reading component and test to all our advanced courses) a well as a minimum of 6 mediation role-plays for all participants.
Our international course focuses on civil and commercial mediations teaching mediation and negotiation techniques as well as providing a solid foundation in the theory behind the mediation approach in relation to international business transactions. Throughout the course, international experts will work with the participants focussing on the structure and aims of the mediation process as well as the skills and techniques successful mediators utilize in helping parties overcome barriers and reach win/win solutions.
