Civil Mediation Council Extends Rules on Online Training for Mediators
The Civil Mediation Council has announced today that it has extended the time scale for certified training providers to offer online mediator skills training to 22nd June 2022.
Hunt ADR Chief Executive Gregory Hunt says
This is a welcome and very positive extension from the CMC. There is still so much uncertainty around COVID and what restrictions could be in place over the winter months, and some people are still very reluctant to commit themselves to in person training and events. This move allows us to continue to develop the market as it gears up to mandatory mediation in the next few years. I'd like to thank the CMC for appreciating the current market conditions and for agreeing this extension.
In light of the announcement we are pleased to confirm new dates for online training in 2022, to supplement those already published for in person training. These are:
London 31st January to 4th February 2022 (kindly hosted by Ankura)
Belfast 7th to 11th February 2022 (kindly hosted by Quigg Golden LLP)
14th to 18th March 2002
25th to 29th April 2022
