When it comes to resolving disputes, there are no shortcuts. South Africa is in need of good mediators for many types of conflicts and disputes, including civil, commercial, employment, workplace, labour/management, medical malpractice, personal injury, and community. There is an increasing demand for mediators who are well trained and accredited to locally and internationally recognised standards, particularly since the introduction of the High Court Uniform Rule 41A.
The Conflict Dynamics course is an incredibly professional, well-taught course that makes good use of a mixture of learning methods. The course is intense but provides one with a thorough understanding of the mediation process and issues related to it, and gives you a lot of opportunity to practice what you have learnt in theory. The feedback from their experienced assessors is invaluable in developing one’s skills further.
So much more than I expected!

Conflict Dynamics manages that delicate balance between ensuring all participants understand the material and maintaining the engagement of those with more experience. This results in a challenging and stimulating course.
I have done mediation training at the best schools internationally and this course is definitely of the highest standard.
