Congratulations to Align Mediation Ltd!

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.

The minimum standards for training that IMI has set has been accepted by the European Commission for Efficiency of Justice – “CEPEJ“ as the minimum European standard (and indirectly by the EU which accepts and looks onto Council of Europe standards – please see and the Memorandum of Understanding between the Council of Europe and the European Union). As such, IMI is the only organisation in the world whose standards have been adopted by an intergovernmental standard-setting organisation.

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.
