Become a Mediator

In addition to taking mediation training to become a mediator, many people take mediation training to enhance their skill set in their current career. The facilitation, problem-solving, and de-escalation skills of a mediator are easily transferable to any individual who facilitates meetings and group discussions or is responsible for addressing conflicts within their organization. This includes human resource personnel, managers, supervisors, project or team leaders, mental health professionals, educators, and union negotiators. You can even use the skills in your personal life.

OMC offers a complete practical experience package for individuals who have previously completed their 40-hour mediation training and are in pursuit of becoming a General Civil or Domestic Relations Mediator and need to meet the SCAO requirements for circuit court list eligibility.
