Recognition from International Mediation Institute
International Mediation Institute (IMI) is a non-profit initiative driving transparency and standards in mediation worldwide. It sets and achieves high mediation standards, convenes stakeholders and parties, promotes understanding and adoption of mediation, and disseminates skills for parties, counsel and mediators. IMI is the only organization in the world that transcends local jurisdictions to develop global, professional standards for mediators and advocates involved in collaborative dispute resolution and negotiation. IMI has established high competency standards that enable users to know that when they select a mediator, they are procuring the services of a quality professional that has the skills to assist them in resolving their dispute.
IMI’s quality standards are established and maintained by IMI’s Independent Standards Commission (ISC), a 70+ strong body of users including highly-experienced mediators, leading judges, providers, trainers and educators from 27 countries. The standards are applied in practice by service provider organizations that are approved by the ISC to run ‘Qualifying Assessment Programs’ (QAPs). QAPs then assess and qualify experienced and competent mediators for IMI Certification. There are currently over 550 IMI Certified Mediators in 45 countries.
ADRIC is an approved Qualifying Assessment Program.
ADRIC has been an IMI QAP since 2010. ADRIC’s Chartered Mediator (C.Med) designation is recognized by IMI allowing ADRIC to confirm individuals as qualifying for IMI Certification. If you are an ADRIC Chartered Mediator and wish to apply to IMI Certification, simply request that ADRIC notify IMI. Thereafter, all that is required by the applicant is to acquire the necessary feedback. Learn more via the links below:
