Mediation Training: Overview

The mediation training course is perfect for those who want to learn the art of mediation from beginner level to pro. Mediation is popular with a wide range of HR professionals as it reduces stress, resolves conflict and restores working relationships, all in substantially less time than it takes to conduct a formal grievance. The teaching of mediation skills is best accomplished through a combination of readings, lectures, demonstrations, role-play and critique, which will be carried out online. Live role-playing, with feedback from experienced instructors, is appropriately the primary methodology for developing those skills.  It will equip students with a mediator’s skill set and the ability to guide others in dispute resolution. Throughout the course, students will learn how to deal with emotions, how to overcome intense negotiations, and students will gain the ability to lead parties to a desired outcome.

For BC Realtors, attending this course can be counted towards Self-Directed PDP Hours.

Live Online Students

Ashton College offers education for all students with a unique online learning approach. A synchronous learning component provides real time interaction and immediate feedback. We use real time interactive sessions, breakout rooms, and screen-sharing. An asynchronous learning component allows students to work at their own pace. Our asynchronous learning materials include recorded real time lectures, online readings, and discussion forums. We encourage students, if possible, to use both components so as to enjoy interactivity and community of real-time learning as well as studying at their own pace. This approach ensures students have support and resources to achieve their educational goals.

For synchronous sessions, students need to have a fully functional computer system with a webcam, speakers and microphone or headset and headphones, along with a reliable high-speed internet connection. Though the classes can be accessed using smartphones and tablets, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer for a better learning experience.

This program/course does not require approval by the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills. As such, PTIB did not review the program/course.
