Mediator Skills Training - Hong Kong
This is a five-day programme of comprehensive tuition in effective dispute resolution where participants are trained in the skills required for effective mediation of commercial disputes and assessed for CEDR Accreditation.
Days 1 and 2 - Skills and process are considered and tried in practical exercise. Case studies, based on actual mediations, are used and participants experience the role of mediator, adviser and party.
Day 3 - A practice day of shared learning in preparation for the assessed days.
Days 4 and 5 (assessed) – Each delegate mediates two simulated cases. A faculty member observes and assesses performance against a set of competencies.
Accreditation is based on the assessments of Days 4 and 5. Participants must also complete a three-part written assignment. The Certificate of Accreditation is awarded to participants who demonstrate the required level of competence to achieve the status of:
1. CEDR Accredited Mediator
2. HKMAAL Stage 1.
CEDR is accredited as an approved body under the Law Society’s Mediator Accreditation Scheme. A CEDR accredited mediator will be exempted from the training requirements in Stage 1 and the mediation assessment in Stage 2 of the requirements for accreditation as a General Mediator on the Hong Kong Law Society Panel.
The course relies heavily on interactive teaching methodology. This demands a high level of competence in spoken English and comprehension from delegates.
Participants will need to prepare thoroughly and a minimum of 16 hours pre-reading should be allowed. A mediator handbook, case studies including construction cases and role-plays are dispatched one month in advance.
