Participating in NACM 40-hour certification is well worth your time and effort. The instructor, Tanya Haggins, is excellent, responsive, and anticipates what challenges there might be regarding the assignments. Even though the course was 100% virtual, it was interactive through assignments and felt ‘live.’ Do not be surprised if it takes you quite a bit more than 40 hours to truly master the course materials. I feel prepared to tip-toe into whatever mediation opportunity comes my way.

Completing the NACM 40 Hour Mediator Training Program was a great experience. I was very nervous about it. But...NACM provided me with all the tools I needed to succeed. My teacher Tanya Haggins was exceptional. I look forward to taking more training with NACM to be the best and knowledgeable and prepared mediator for the people I will represent.

This program was a Godsend. Just as Covid shut down the world, I was able to complete this at home, in total quarantine, at my own pace. It was perfect with little ones homeschooling and my desire to avoid live class. It also gave some historic background which helped me understand the societal need for mediation.
