Mediation must be considered as an alternative to litigation. A cost-effective way of resolving disputes, mediation brings conflicting parties to a discussion facilitated by an impartial, professional mediator.

Train for professional accreditation, and you will be guided through a carefully planned programme of learning designed to:

  • Accelerate learning in a dynamic and fun way
  • Equip you to mediate in a variety of commercial situations
  • Build a high level of knowledge, skill and experience.

The full training programme consists of five full days divided into two separate modules. It is designed to help delegates build their negotiation skills, giving them the opportunity to practise management of disputing parties, as well as techniques for avoiding conflict escalation.

It's a well kept secret that mediation has many benefits, both from a personal and professional business point of view and I would recommend the RICS mediation course to anyone aspiring to be a mediator.
