Domestic Mediation Training
Academic Noncredit

Mediation is both a professional path and a life skill. This course provides advanced mediation training with information specific to mediating family and domestic cases. This course is open to anyone who has completed a court-qualified basic mediation program. In Utah, individuals wishing to mediate professionally may be listed on two different court rosters: The Utah Court Roster for Mediators (basic roster) and the Utah Court Roster for Divorce Mediators (divorce roster). To be listed on the divorce roster, mediators must first have qualified for the basic roster, after which they must complete an additional 32 hours of domestic mediation training and complete a mentorship. This course is court approved and fulfills the 32-hour educational requirement to be listed on the divorce roster.

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. For more information, visit the Campus Store Inclusive Access Program's webpage. If you opt out, you will be responsible for obtaining the course materials yourself for the course.
