Please check back with us.  We are always scheduling new programs and we update this site on a regular basis.  We can also schedule a private training!  If you are interested in scheduling a private training program and have at least 10 attendees, we can create a flexible program for your organization. 

READ CAREFULLY:  The Florida Supreme Court has mandatory requirements which must be met by a person applying for certification as a mediator.  In addition to completing a Florida Supreme Court certified mediation training program, the applicant must possess sufficient education (which may include graduate level) and experience, complete the required mentorship obligations, and demonstrate good moral character.  The specific requirements are contained in rules 10.100, Certification Requirements, and 10.105, Point System Categories, Florida Rules for Certified and Court-Appointed Mediators as well as in the Operating Procedures Governing the Certification of Mediators (eff. Nov. 1, 2021).  This information is in a document How to Become a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator, Step By Step Guide which is available at

For example, in order to become certified for family or circuit civil you are required to have 100 points with a minimum of 30 points for successful completion of a Florida Supreme Court certified training program, 25 points for education/mediation experience, and 30 points for mentorship.  You must have a minimum of a bachelor's degree.  In order to accumulate the 25 point minimum in the category of education/mediation experience, you must have (A) a Master's Degree (25 points) or higher or (B) a Bachelor's Degree (20 points) and have either substantial mediation experience as the mediator (5 points) or have earned a graduate certification in Conflict Resolution (5 points) prior to submitting your application for certification.  No mentorship or miscellaneous points may be applied to the education/mediation experience category. 

If you have any questions about your qualifications or the point system, please contact the Dispute Resolution Center in Tallahassee at 850.921.2910.
