This training programme provides delegates with a comprehensive appreciation of traditional, facilitative mediation principles. Delivered in bitesize units this course will ensure delegates develop real world professional skills that they can apply to their working and personal lives.
We promote and enforce the highest professional standards across the built environment and the RICS ACRE TM Mediation Accreditation is a globally recognised qualification in this sector. Becoming an RICS Accredited Mediator benchmarks your quality and expertise in mediation practice.
Our delegates come from a variety of backgrounds and include professionals in land, construction, real estate, local authorities, legal practitioners and members of government departments. This course is suitable for those who are representing parties in mediation.
We've developed a robust approach to our mediation training based on four main principles:
|Analytical||Helping parties to analyse the circumstances, law, evidence, as well as the strengths and weaknesses 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 the dispute, our mediators help parties to reach a common-sense settlement, or to narrow the issues in dispute, reducing court or arbitration costs.|
The ACRETM Training programme is an intensive, face-to-face course and is divided into three modules. Our expert instructors will provide in-depth, practical coaching and you will receive feedback from both your instructor and your peers.
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.

Unit 2 - Mediation preparation

Module Two 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 is intensely hands-on with coaching and feedback throughout the role play exercises. Delegates participate in role play scenarios based on real life cases, acting as mediator and party with instructor and peer feedback.

This Module is available once you have successfully completed Modules 1 and 2.
Module 3 will develop your technique as an evaluative mediator, building on the skills in traditional facilitative mediation and the knowledge of evaluative mediation you have gained in Modules 1 and 2.
