Domestic Mediation Training Course

Prerequisite: Basic Mediation Training

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. To learn about our basic mediation training, click here.

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 completed the requirements and qualified for the basic roster. Once mediators have qualified for the basic roster, 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.

  • Advanced mediation skills that build upon the skills learned in basic mediation training
  • How domestic mediation differs from other types of mediation, including process and ethical concerns
  • The basics of Utah Family Law as it pertains to issues that typically arise in domestic mediation
