Testimonials

"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."

'At the firm where I'm working I'm getting involved more and more with mediations, so this course came at  the right time for me. I'm really able to add value not just to my clients but also impress my colleagues with my knowledge! I thought the calibre of tutors and the entire course format was impressive. Flexibility was a top a priority, so being able to study at my own convenience was great. The fact that this course was accredited by a leading ADR institution was a real incentive.'

'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.’

The blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually anything of value - including our digital certificates. When we store a credential on the blockchain we cryptographically seal a record of the credential at the exact time it’s created so that others can be absolutely certain that the Certificate hasn’t been altered since it was issued.
There are a number of benefits to this:
1. Once we've recorded a credential on the Blockchain it cannot be altered, faked or spoofed. If someone attempts to create a credential that looks like your credentials it won't verify against the Blockchain record. 
2. With paper certificates a key barrier to fraud could be broken with Photoshop or photocopier skills. With digital credentials fraud is harder and puts the onus on our cyber security. Adding your credentials to the Blockchain makes this even stronger because there's a record of the credential that's impossible to change.
3. No private or personal information is stored on the Blockchain. The only thing stored on the Blockchain is a series of numbers mathematically derived from the credential information. We can use this series of numbers to verify that the content displayed matches the original record.
4. Third party trust and confidence in the authenticity of the credential  is radically increased.
4. You can display your certificate on your LinkedIn profile and other digital assets.


You can access the course on any device, desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, irrespective of what operating system it runs. Some writing will be required, this can be done on your device, or the old fashioned way, with pen and paper. You can also switch easily back and forth between devices. The one thing you will need is a reasonably reliable and rapid internet connection.
