IMI Certified Mediator Training Programs, or CMTPs, meet international competency criteria for mediation training excellence. Individuals who complete CMTPs are able to become recognised as ‘IMI Qualified Mediators’. CMTPs can be searched here.
As of June 2021, IMI decided to recognize training delivered in part or entirely online as meeting the standards required of IMI CMTPs. Therefore, the Training Criteria now applies equally to programs that deliver training in-person, in hybrid formats, and online. View IMI’s training criteria.
IMI is the only organisation in the world that transcends local jurisdictions to develop global, professional standards for mediators and advocates involved in collaborative dispute resolution and negotiation.
