OH Human Relations offers a very 'hands on' mediation training, with interactive activities and live mediation coaching throughout.

This training consists of an orientation and 6 training sessions held online on Zoom, and approximately 13 hours of assigned activities for participants to complete on their own time between sessions.

  • This online training begins with an orientation, with an overview of the training and in introduction to the online classroom and assigned activities.
  • The rest of the Zoom training meetings will take place on Tuesdays from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, and Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM with a 30 minute break for lunch.   
  • Participants must have the ability to access Zoom and Google Classroom through links provided by the trainer (connection instructions to be provided prior to the start of the training).

Remember: It is also important to schedule some time between each session to complete activities:

  •  about 5 hours of activities to complete in the week after the orientation
  • about 2 hours of activities to complete between each of the training sessions

Attendance and Activities are required.   If participants miss a training session or do not complete their assigned activities they will not be eligible to receive the certification at the end of the training, but may be offered the opportunity to make up the missed session in a future training to complete their certification requirements.
