The RICS ACRE Mediation Training programme is a Singapore International Mediation Institute (SIMI) registered training programme. Candidates who passed the assessment are eligible to join the SIMI Credentialing Scheme as a SIMI Accredited Mediator Level 1.
Increasingly recognised as a cost-effective way of resolving disputes, mediation brings conflicting parties to a discussion facilitated by an impartial, professional mediator. The parties retain control of the outcome of the dispute, but the mediator negotiates between them, working towards a resolution without the need to enter litigation.
The RICS ACRE Training Programme provides a comprehensive appreciation of traditional facilitative mediation principles, and builds on this to explore evaluative mediation techniques.
The course consists of five days divided into two separate, highly practical, modules. This course includes coaching and both instructor- and peer-led feedback that will help develop your real-world professional skills as a mediator.
Mr Siu is an experienced full-time mediator and has conducted over 100 cases in Hong Kong, Greater China and South East Asia. He is a current council member of the Hong Kong Mediation Council, HKIAC. His strength is in facilitating disputing parties to come up with creative solutions to resolve their disputes.
He was voted as the 2016 Best Appointed Mediator of the Year by the Dongguan District Court Number 2, ChangAn, Dongguan, Guangdong, PRC. He is one of the early Hong Kong mediators to be awarded the Accredited Professional Mediator credential by the Mainland — Hong Kong Joint Mediation Centre, belonging to the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade and the Hong Kong Mediation Centre.
