District Criminal Court Mediation Training, as approved by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission:
Available to the Public, Volunteer Mediators, and Community Mediation Centers:
This is a 24 hour basic mediation skills training class and does not require working in the courts. We find the issues appropriate to mediate in court are well suited for new mediators to learn from. It is offered annually, in the Spring. Acceptance into the class follows an interview process by the center director. State certification requires class completion and an internship, along with approval by the center director.
Legislation providing for statewide certification of district criminal court mediators, G.S. 7A-38.3D, was enacted by the General Assembly on July 31, 2007, and signed by the Governor on August 19, 2007. The North Carolina Supreme Court adopted Rules Implementing Mediation In Matters Pending In District Criminal Court on November 8, 2007. Both the legislation and Rules can be viewed at http://ncdrc.org
