Are you a unique freak like me?
A person who grew up deeply sensitive and empathic but didn’t know what it was all for?
well, our stories might have a lot in common if you too were led to the path of mediation.
I’ve realized for a long time that I had a “healing presence” but it wasn’t until years of being a relationship coach that I discovered how to put it to use in the world of MEDIATION and the certification program instructed by Tanya Haggins.
Finally, I had uncovered my unique life purpose and found the exact program that would offer me the skills to lead it in a professional way.
If you’ve never led a formal mediation but suppose you have the heart and intention to create peace in the world, then you’re going to want to enroll in this program to learn what it is all about.
I was doing family interventions or mediations on my own naturally before this course–but with everything I’ve learned in such a short amount of time, I have 10x’ed my professionalism and necessary skills to be successful.
I love how much I truly understand how the process of mediation from beginning to end and what contributes to a successful outcome.
This course will help launch you to places you’ve always wanted to go and build in you the confidence and competency to believe you can do it.

The National Association of Certified Mediators 40 Hour Certification Course was excellent! It covered valuable content and Tanya was a terrific instructor. Her years of experience in mediation were of tremendous value. The course was easy to follow and I appreciated the exercises at the end of each module and the feedback that was provided in a timely manner. I am excited to add ‘Certified Mediator’ to my credentials.

Had a great experience. My education prepared me so that I can operate my own mediation practice. I have recommended others to seek their education . Thank you.

Dr. William Harrison


The National Association of Certified Mediators (NACM) is an excellent organization. The peer-to-peer, as well as, the instructor interaction has enabled me to glean insight and value to become a better mediator and person.

NACM is truly at the forefront of the mediation industry and will always be so.

Divorce Mediation center


I became a Mediator because of my own divorce experience. I wanted to educate others all about the emotional and financial damage of protracted litigation and a biased, unpredictable legal system, while offering a viable solution.

In my view, mediation isn’t an alternative to litigation, litigation is the alternative to mediation.

Sandra Heard


This has been one of the best prepared and presented training courses that I have been exposed to, for any subject matter. Our class members have all expressed gratitude for the transfer of this valuable information and resources. I am excited to have the opportunity to apply what I have learned so I can help others with mediation needs and train other mediators. I would recommend this series of courses as they will assist you in developing a successful mediation business. We have received great subject content, a strong marketing strategy, and a plethora of online resource recommendations. These are all invaluable to a new or existing business for their eminent business development and growth. Thanks, NACM!

This mediation marketing course was so helpful in assisting me to start the marketing process for my mediation business. Our instructor Tanya Haggins is an excellent teacher, who provided us with not only valuable information but multiple resources for obtaining our goals. Guest speakers and instructional videos were easy to understand and walked us through processes we will need to set up successful marketing. I highly recommend NACM courses.

enjoyed the course very much.

Chantale L. Suttle


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.

I pinch myself from time to time when I think of how I discovered this excellent organization. From the very beginning of the 40-hour course, I knew that I was connected with a stellar place.

All of the training components are top notched. This includes the mediator training course. NACM prepared me to be successful. It is now up to me.

Our instructor made each session an engaging experience. This is a fantastic course and I highly recommend it to others.

Dr. Stacey Williams Porter


I found the Marketing for Mediation Training to be very informative and thorough. The speakers were knowledgeable and experienced. The resources provided are helpful. Professor Haggins is a dynamic, supportive and energizing instructor.

Beth Masterman


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.

Instructor: Tanya Haggins

I am honored to testify on the program and course work offered by National Association of Certified (NACM) Mediators. I have been a Professional trainer and adjunct business instructor since 2006. This program is the only program that teach and have taught step by step a skill, business creation and business marketing in real time and relevant.

My experience has shown me as an introduction of business and marketing are concepts without real live application. NACM provide relevant application in specific skills, real programs and step by step instruction and demonstration to software systems we will need to use to employ our business and system to run our businesses.

The instruction was clear and on point to everything we needed to be successful mediators, start, or improve our businesses. The resources provided are useful and enable us to meet the needs of our clients and provide a professional environment.

I personally have been struggling to transition my business from a paperwork start-up to a functional, credible business that making a profit!

The NACM 40 hour course was a fantastic introduction to the mediation industry.

The coursework was relevant and detailed and the lesson activities did a solid job of helping me apply what I learned in each lesson.

I would recommend NACM to anyone interested in formal training and education in this field!

Omar Antonius Battle


The training was excellent. It covered all the aspects of marketing I was hoping for. I’ve discovered online marketing gurus who claim they can accelerate your business, but their prices were in the thousands. It’s hard to believe that so much great marketing information came from this course at such an affordable price. Kudos!

Cordelle Young


I went into this program not knowing what to expect. I have learned so much in this Marketing class. Basically, it could not be more simpler. For me, it’s probably going to take a bit of time to reach my starting goals, but because of the excellent training I received, I’m going to make this learning experience a tool that I will always live by.

Terry C. Dysick


Thoroughly enjoyed the class! I received more information than I ever have in mediation training.

I am so grateful for my experience with NACM. I learned about the skills needed to work with others and the information necessary to be participating in actual mediations. I deeply appreciated being able to call in to office hours with my instructor and ask all sorts of questions.

Dr. Horace A. Buckley


Dr. Haggins is an amazing instructor who goes above and beyond to meet the needs of her students.

I wholeheartedly reccomend NACM to anyone seeking to understand mediation as a career.

Eric Martin Van Buren


The Course was amazing! I feel more empowered to do what I feel I am obligated to do. After being convicted of a federal drug conspiracy and doing 18 years in prison. This mediation program has allowed me to begin my journey to giving back to the community. After speaking with Ms. Haggins she helped me in advancing my goals in a way I never imagined. THANK YOU! I cannot tell you how much this means to me and my family and will mean to the community. Thank You.

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.

She was very professional and provided me with all the information I needed to get started.
