40-Hour Basic Mediation Training
Academic Noncredit

Mediation is both a career path and an invaluable personal skill. The knowledge gained and skills honed through this course empower you to improve your life, and the lives of others, as you bring the best practices of professional mediation to bear in your personal and professional worlds. The course is for anyone in the community, and is often pursued by social workers, therapists, educators, members of law enforcement, human resource professionals, managers, government employees, attorneys, and parents, to name just a few. If you want to learn how to find a way to move from conflict to common ground, Basic Mediation Training is the place to begin your journey.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.

Online book and material fees may be added up until the first week of class. Students may opt out during the first two weeks of class.
