Mediation Training

Membership in CDI requires the completion of a Basic Training and a 40-hour mediation training. Below are providers who offer the mediation training. Read the requirements to become a CDI Fellow.

NOTE: If you wish to take a non-CDI sponsored training to fulfill CDI’s requirements for membership, before you register for the non-CLII sponsored training, you must submit a table of contents for the course and bios of the trainers for review by the CLII Membership Committee. Questions? Please contact the CLII Administrator at: admin@collaborativedivorceillinois.org

Other Educational Opportunities

If you’re interested in attending a non-CDI program for FCST credit or to satisfy the Basic Training requirement for membership, please check with CDI first to ensure that it meets the FCST requirements (1: it is a training that directly relates to the skills necessary to engage in interest-based negotiations and Collaborative Practice; 2: it concentrates on process rather than substance and should be highly interactive; 3: it is designed to enhance a professionals’ ability to fulfill their role on a Collaborative team.) Please email the program title, description and program provider’s name to admin@collaborativedivorceillinois.org
