"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."

''The professional quality and the variety of content in this course was outstanding. The price just made my decision to sign up that much easier. The video interviews with mediators who work in the field brought the course to life. I particularly liked the future focus of some of the modules and the way the course covered topics that are currently emerging in mediation. It did more than what it said on the tin. I can talk confidently and knowledgeably to lawyers and it's really helping me to sell mediation. I've put my credentials up on my LinkedIn profile and I'd highly recommend this course to anyone.'
