Cleveland Mediation Center

Empower others. Learn to listen. Become a mediator.

Since our inception, Cleveland Mediation Center has been involved in training mediators, initially training those interested in acting as volunteer mediators at CMC. As our reputation in training grew, CMC began to offer mediation training to the general public. We offer our Fundamentals of Mediation Training several times each year, and Advanced Mediation training courses periodically for those who have completed the Fundamentals class.
