20-40 Hour Basic Training

December 40-Hour Basic Mediation Training


A 40-Hour Immersion in the Baltimore Mediation Core Curriculum

Throughout the year, Baltimore Mediation offers a series of 20- and 40-hour basic trainings in conflict transformation and mediation that you can take in any order or combination to build your mediation experience and meet your training requirements for mediating professionally. Some trainings focus on important areas of practice, some approach mediation more generally, but all our basic trainings provide you with the building blocks and core skills you need to start mediating and each course contributes to a fuller understanding of the mediation process.
