"This was a highly relevant course but I wasn’t that familiar with online learning. I found the format really user friendly and the notes under the videos very helpful. Stopping and starting as it suited me was very convenient and the fact that the resources were downloadable was a bonus. I would definitely recommend this course to practitioners; very practical, great value, excellent price, on point information."

'I've followed Mediator Academy for the past few years and thought the video interviews were very informative. I’ve been putting off taking my mediation training, finding the time was a big challenge. When I saw this course, I had no excuse and when I saw the calibre of faculty and the CIArb accreditation it really was a no-brainer. Without a doubt the most comprehensive and high quality introductory mediation course available online.’
