The IMA New Mediator Course is the introductory-level course for anyone who wants to learn how to mediate. The curriculum in this course exceeds the 40-hour requirements of most court-annexed and community mediation programs. Our courses are designed to maximize your time and learning.

We combine videos of real and simulated mediations, homework and live experiential instruction. Participants receive certificate upon successful completion of each course.

Whether you plan to use mediation skills formally or informally, this course will benefit you.

IMA has revolutionized mediation training. While many mediator-trainers have kept up with the latest research and terminology, most courses are not accessible to busy, working professionals. With over 25 years in the field, we have created a dynamic curriculum you can access at your own convenience, to ensure you get the foundational materials and instruction while you observe and then engage in hands-on mediation simulations. You will then enter the practice of mediation, prepared with a solid understanding of mediation principles, skills and applications.

This course offers you everything the old-fashioned classroom-style 40-hour mediation course offers, plus plenty of bonus materials for you to explore and advance your skills.

This course may meet CLE requirements for attorneys, as well as continuing credits for other professions.
