About CAMP & EMA
The CAMP/EMA India International Mediation Training course is a combination of asynchronous and synchronous learning i.e. virtual knowledge and skill development instruction with live role play and simulated mediation practice.
Rooted in the philosophy that “mediation is best taught by experienced practitioners”, this program brings together leading mediation professionals from the United States and India who have decades of experience mediating thousands of cases. Structured along the lines of the “flipped classroom” model, participants are introduced to theory and technique from leading practitioners, observe an Indian mediation through asynchronous online course work and then engage in live facilitated sessions focused on role play simulations, Q & A with faculty members as well as group discussions.
Congratulations to CAMP & EMA!
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 https://www.coe.int/en/web/portal/european-union 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.
