A 40-Hour Immersion in the Baltimore Mediation Core Curriculum with an emphasis on Legal and Ethical Issues


This is a certificated 40-hour mediation training, a comprehensive immersion in our Mediation Core Curriculum designed to teach you everything you need to know to start mediating, either professionally or for daily use and practice.
