Product Description:
    • This 24-hour synchronous training will be provided live on Zoom from Monday, March 1st - Friday, March 5th between 9:30am - 4:00pm daily.


    • The training will examine the dynamics of conflict and the skills mediators should use within their roles as neutrals to help facilitate dialogue and potential understanding. During the training we will explore questions like: 
      • What is mediation and how does it compare to other forms of alternative dispute resolution? 
      • What are the core skills I need to be an effective mediator? 
      • What are the foundational values of mediation? 
      • How can I identify and respond to power imbalances? 
      • How can I identify and respond to different values, cultural norms, and biases? 
      • What is my role as a mediator? 
      • What are the best practices for online mediation? 
      • What is a successful mediation?


    • There will be a variety of learning methods used in the training including: 
      • simulations
      • role plays
      • practice exercises
      • video clips
      • dedicated question & answer sessions


    • Chris Daly Esq. will be the lead trainer and will be joined by NYPI staff and coaches. Because of the interactive nature of the training, attendees should be prepared to log onto Zoom with their camera on throughout the entire training. 


    • CLE credit will be offered pending approval of accreditation of this course. Please email Rachel at after you register if you are an attorney seeking CLE credit for this course. 


    • Applicants who enroll and complete this online BMT are eligible, and their applications are favored, for our Spring Apprenticeship Program. Additionally, applicants who are interested in joining our roster of volunteer mediators may be eligible to do so depending on completion of our apprenticeship and additional training.


    • Please note that pursuant to Part 146, court-based mediation rosters require both a combination of mediation training and experience mediating. Acceptance on court rosters depends on a court's need for mediators at any given time and may include a court's need for mediators with specific case-type training or experience and mediation experience. Final placement on any court roster is at the discretion of the local Administrative Judge.


    • The size of the March training is limited due to the interactive nature, so we encourage you to sign up now.


    • Financial Aid: Please email Rachel at for information about financial aid. The deadline to apply for financial aid is Feb 5, 2021.



Additionally, please note that we are planning to offer an in-person Basic Mediation Training in May 2021. Similar to the in-person training we offered in September 2020, this training will be held outdoors in a pavilion in a socially-distanced manner. The May 2021 in-person training will be both CDRC and Part 146 approved. We will post location details and the application to this in-person training on our website in the Spring.
