CMCRI offers training seminars and workshops to individuals and groups around constructive dialogue and conflict management and resolution for both personal and professional settings, and around personal, professional, and civic issues.
We provide regular workshops and can also design custom-tailored programs to best meet your needs. They can range from a few hours to multiple-day intensive programs.
Our workshops engage and educate participants in an interactive, safe environment. Experienced and skilled trainers teach principles and practical, useful tools that can be used immediately.
CMCRI provides two 40-hour mediation trainings annually, generally in the fall and spring that are certified for CLE credit by the Rhode Island Bar Association. Attorneys wishing to receive CLE credits must apply via Appendix D on the Supreme Court Attorney Portal at www.courts.ri.gov. A certificate of completion is issued to all participants, qualifying them under the Rhode Island statute R.I.G.L Sec. 9-19-44 to ensure confidentiality in the disputes they mediate. CMCRI offers discounts to any agency or work place signing up more than two participants for a training class. A limited number of partial and full scholarships are additionally available.
