MEDIATION TRAINING

“I’ve thought about mediation training,
 and now the time seems to be right.
What kinds of 
training options do you offer?”

If you are interested in learning the skills of mediation and wish to give back to the community through our volunteer mediation programs, you have come to the right place. The range of people coming to NCRC for training is impressive, diverse, and gratifying. We offer a discount on training cost to all who are willing to commit to a period of volunteer service. Full details are available in the training application.

We offer two full mediation training classes each year, each of which provides a thorough foundation in community mediation skills, along with targeted knowledge addressing the needs of specific court programs:

Civil and Victim-Offender Mediation Training/Rule 31 Civil: NCRC’s Community Mediation Training is an approved course for Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 General Civil Mediation. It is most appropriate for individuals wishing to work with civil and community issues regarding housing, property, financial disputes, neighbor conflicts, and Victim-Offender mediation.

Family Mediation Training/Rule 31 Family: NCRC’s Family Mediation Training is an approved course for Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 Family Mediation. It is most appropriate for individuals wishing to work with disputes involving family issues, including divorce and co-parenting.

Please note: if you wish to apply for Rule 31 listing after training, you should first read carefully through the AOC requirements for each category. NCRC provides approved training, but the AOC has its own set of standards and fees for actual listing. Full information is here on the AOC website.
