This exceptional course offers full UK, Regional and EU training for the civil, commercial, and community mediator - as well as a solid foundation to all other forms of mediation.  The Society is delighted to present this live in Grand Cayman with the same London Faculty as is world renowned part of our outreach programme for 2024 to 2026.  

** This is the tenth time the Society has been invited to lead an educational opportunity and seminar locally and  the programme  over the last 12 years is a universally acclaimed success.  Feedback from other courses internationally this year, including South Afrtica and Greece: "A brilliant week - life changing professionally and wonderful socially.  This should be compulsory medicine for all professionals!" and "Simply the best course I have ever been one. 10/10".    "Brilliant reaining from London's best faculty - fully recommended for lawyers, financial people, and community leaders."**

This is not surprising.  Course feedback for over 20 years is legendary and the same tutors and Faculty are working around the world.  For 2024 only -  the cost of the course is supported by the Bould Foundation and the hosts reducing it to just £1150/CI$1200.  This is because as a Charity we do not take a profit - we just fund our costs and our charitable activities in the UK such as the Free Mediation Project and our international outreach in southern Africa.  Our educational activities are also VAT-exempt (zero-rated) so this offers an additional saving. 

It is open to all.  You are welcome from the Cayman Islands, the region or indeed mainland USA or the United Kingdom.  Flights can be purchased at reasonable costs, direct or via New York, or Chicago.  Accommodation in pleasant appartments is around £1,000 for a week.  The location is central to George Town and Seven Mile beach so a car is not needed. 

Who is this for?

This mediation foundation course is for everyone.  You need have no legal or degree background.  It is taught in English, by experienced practising mediators, supported by tutors who speak other languages and are from diverse backgrounds. 

The course represents the first major step towards qualification as a Civil and Commercial Mediator and is accredited by the Civil Mediation Council, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, and the Bar Council, amongst others.  It is recognised worldwide.   Practice in the United Kingdom will require three observations to obtain SOM accreditation - we provide these online free of charge.  Practice in the CI does not require this - and the life skills that the course offers are tremendous. 

Delegates will undertake both theory and practical elements during this intensive, week-long course and will be required to undergo both an assessed simulated mediation and written examination.  The course hours in Grand  Cayman are adjusted to allow afternoon private study, office catch-up, and reflection as required. 

This course is suitable for anyone who has an interest in learning more about advanced negotiation, deep listening,  and of course working as a mediator or a mediation advocate  - whether they intend to practice as a mediator themselves or simply use the skills learned within their own existing roles. No previous knowledge or understanding of alternative dispute resolution or the law is required as all essential elements will be covered on the course.   

The course is especially useful for those working in customer or client or community facing roles who need to reduce tensions, improve relationships, and build durable solutions through the use of principled negotiation and advanced deep listening skills.
