IMI Training Standards Task Force: Recommendations


Introduction:

The Mediator Training and Competency Assessment Task Force was convened by the IMI Independent Standards Commission (ISC) to make recommendations in relation to the standards for skills training and competency assessment for mediators as follows:

  • Mediator Training Programmes: to establish high minimum criteria relating to the quality, methodology and essential content required for mediator skills training courses Mediator Skills Trainers
  • Mediator Trainers: to establish high minimum knowledge, skills and experience criteria required by those who teach mediation skills courses
  • Mediation Competency for Coaches and Assessors: to establish high minimum knowledge, skills and experience criteria required by those who coach and assess mediators.

The following guidelines set out these requirements in two sections.

Section A covers the necessary criteria and standards that need to be in place for a training programme to be considered of an acceptable standard.

Section B covers the criteria and acceptable standards for Trainers, Coaches and Assessors, who will work with participants on a mediator skills training programme.
