LAKEPORT, Calif. – Lake County Mediations has announced the dates and location for its first basic mediation training class for 2012.
The training consists of 32 hours of classroom instruction.
The classes will be held at the Kelseyville United Methodist Church for four consecutive Saturdays beginning on March 31.
Class sessions will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each Saturday and will provide the participants with the basic skills necessary to work in both the community and court mediation programs served by Lake County Mediations.
The cost of the training is $250.
Lake County Mediations offers a sliding-scale fee for the training based on demonstrated need and a commitment to provide volunteer hours to the organization as either a mediator or volunteer. The fee includes the materials provided to participants.
A certificate of completion will be awarded to the participants who complete all of the classes at a reception held following the final training session on April 21.
Participants will receive training in communication and active listening skills, the role, value, types and history of mediation, the mediation process and dealing with dispute resolution in culturally diverse populations.

Attorney’s who participate in the training will receive 32 hours of mandatory continuing education credit for their participation.
Other professional continuing education credit for participation in the training may be sought by the participant.
