How Does it Work?

Examine the case of Rwanda…

Our partner training facilitator in Rwanda has been using EMA’s Mediation Skills course to build capacity in her country.

To date… four groups of twenty students each from the Rwandan Bar Association and the judiciary have taken the online Mediation Skills course in their own time… and then met as a group to discuss each module.

In these face-to-face group meetings, the students and trainer discuss how the lessons apply in the specific legal and cultural environment in Rwanda.

They practice role playing… and develop an ongoing support group of like-minded individuals.

After completion of the Mediation Skills course, the students have a one day face-to-face with Bruce Edwards… and receive certificates of completion.

Edwards Mediation Academy provides hands-on support throughout the course duration.

As a serving Judge and a mediation enthusiast, I often wondered how I would ever get a chance to take a well-balanced and fully-fledged course that could equip me with the necessary mediation skills to use in my day-to-day work without leaving my office. I had tried several options, but they could not quench the thirst of my expectation, not until luck struck and I was introduced to the EDWARDS MEDIATION ACADEMY ONLINE COURSE. I got the best of the best without leaving the comfort of my office and as a result my working and my thinking in the arena of mediation will never be the same. I am so indebted to Bruce and Susan for coming up with such a tremendous course. It will be my springboard to greater heights.
