Mediator Practicum

An Intern practicum leading to certification by the DRC as a practicing mediator is available to 40-hour Professional Mediation Training graduates. This is a great opportunity for individuals wishing to continue building their skills and enhance their professional lives. Most mediators will confirm that mediation training provides personal growth in communication and conflict resolution skills.

Interns observe actual cases and work with experienced mediators in a co-mediation setting to practice their skills. This is a unique experience and a valuable opportunity to build expertise in the field.

The program includes the following steps:

  1. 40-Hour Professional Mediation Training (trainings other than a DRC mediation training must be approved by the training manager)
  2. Successful completion of a take-home exam
  3. Minimum observation of 6 mediations
  4. Solo mock mediation
  5. Minimum participation in 6 co-mediations with a mentor mediator
  6. Co-Mediation mock mediation
  7. On-going in-service attendance during practicum
  8. Final review of a co-mediation by the training manager and staff
  9. DRC certification as a practicing mediator
