RICS has built upon its traditional mediation service to develop a new, robust and evaluative training programme: ACRE Mediation.

The training programme has been running in UK and internationally for several years and is globally recognised. It will provide you with a comprehensive appreciation of traditional facilitative mediation principles. It comprises two modules:

Module one

This module is suitable as a stand-alone course for those interested in entering the growing market for qualified-mediation representatives.

This introductory module provides the essential baseline skills to enable delegates to develop and expand their proficiency as a party representative. This training will provide you with a detailed introduction to facilitative and evaluative mediation with no formal assessments.

Module two

This module is for those seeking qualification as an RICS Accredited Mediator.

This intensive two-day training programme builds upon the skills acquired on module one to develop your practical skills as a mediator. This module involves hands-on coaching and feedback throughout the role-play exercises. Delegates will participate in scenarios based on real-life cases, acting as mediator and party with instructor and peer feedback.

This programme is in process of HKMAAL accreditation.

What ACRE stands for

  • Analytical: Helping parties to analyse the circumstances, law, evidence, as well as the strengths and weakness of their case, to empower them to make pragmatic and viable settlement decisions.
  • Commercial: The training encompasses wide commercial, as well as narrow legal, realities to provide a flexible settlement, which courts or arbitration cannot.
  • Restorative: Focusing on restoring the business relationship between parties, proceedings are completely confidential to limit any further damage.
  • Expert: With many years’ experience and expertise in the field of dispute resolution, our mediators help parties to reach a common-sense settlement, or to narrow the issues in dispute, reducing court or arbitration costs.

This course is for:

  • Senior members of the construction, land and real estate industries.
  • Members of government departments, local authorities involved in the administration of land and property matters.
  • Legal practitioners who specialise in the above areas.

How this course is assessed

  • Developmental assessment: Assessment takes place throughout the modules, with detailed and constructive feedback from the trainer.
  • 1.5 hour role-play assessment.
  • Written assessment: 1,500 word essay or written role-play scenario submitted after course completion.
