ADR Atlantic & ADR Alberta Conflict Management & Mediation Training

ADR Atlantic Institute and ADR Institute of Alberta have partnered to offer ADR Atlantic (ADRAI) members training in conflict management and mediation.

ADRAI members can sign up for any of ADR Institute of Alberta's (ADRIA's) online courses without having to sign up for an ADRIA membership*.

I Want to Become a Mediator, Where Do I Start?

If you are looking to start your training to become a mediator, the first course you will need to take via ADRIA is Communications in ADR. This 40-hour course introduces you to conflict conversations and the micro skills needed to manage these conversations. This course includes a take home quiz and a role-play skills evaluation.

Once you have successfully completed the Communications in ADR course, the next course via ADRIA is the National Introductory Mediation course. This 40-hour course prepares you to effectively facilitate the interest-based mediation approach to resolving disputes. This course includes a take home quiz and a role-play skills evaluation.

How to Register for Courses via ADRIA

*Before registering for courses, you will need an ADRIA membership in order to receive the member rate via ADRIA's online portal. As an ADRAI member, you will get an ADRIA organizational learner membership at no cost. There is no application process, simply signup as an Associate Member and select invoice (do not pay). Then email [email protected] to notify ADRIA that you have signed up and introduce yourself as an ADRAI member. Once ADRIA connects with ADRAI to confirm your membership, ADRIA will change your membership and void the membership invoice.

Once you have signed up for a membership then you can register for courses at the member rate. You do not need to wait for  ADRIA and ADRAI to confirm your membership to register. ADRIA's class sizes are small and many of their courses tend to fill up quickly, so we recommend you sign up early.  For ADRIA's Communications in ADR and National Introductory Mediation courses, ADRIA will add new dates as the courses fill up. Advanced courses are typically only offered once per year.

Note: all ADR Alberta course hours are Mountain time.
