Commonly Asked Questions

Q1: Are mentorship points required for "County" Mediation Certificate?

Mediator Certification Requirements by Rule: Mediator certification is based on a point system that is provided in rules 10.100 and 10.105, Rules for Certified and Court-Appointed Mediators. The required mentorship points for certification under rule 10.100 are suspended for certification applicants who complete training and postmark or email applications to the Center for certification from April 7, 2020, through June 30, 2022. Thus, during that time period , applicants for county certification are not required to obtain 60 mentorship points.
