Why The National Institute for Mediation for your Training?
We teach in a classroom environment located at the Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Our faculty has more than 130 years of combined experience, and it has performed thousands of successful mediations. Our basic mediation class includes over twenty hours of mock mediation, done in small groups, giving everyone the opportunity to participate. Mock mediation is a large part of preparing our students to become successful mediators, so, a professional mediator will coach and observe the mock mediations.
The State Bar of Texas, along with other organizations, have approved our institute for mediation training for MCLE’s and other CEU’s. The classes are approved by other organizations including the Texas Department of Insurance, the Texas Real Estate Commission, and the HR Certification Institute for CEU’s.
In association with our Houston campus, we offer an internship program that allows you to observe actual mediations, and co-mediate after the observation period with members of our faculty.

Why The National Institute for Mediation for your Mediation?
Mediation is an art. No two mediations are exactly alike and no two mediators are exactly alike. Here at the Institute for Mediation, our mediators have a lot of different tools in their tool box for mediation. They are prepared to adapt the mediation to the requirements or conditions as they change. Our mediations are done in one of the largest mediation center in the United States.
There are two issues when it comes to mediations that are paramount to lasting success of the agreement that is reached. The first issue is confidentiality. When you reach an agreement it is usually best if the parties, their attorneys, and the mediation staff can maintain confidentiality as to the parameters of the settlement. Our mediators are professional and that confidentiality has been a part of our program for decades. Our facilities are designed for mediation and that helps with sound proofing, and location of mediation rooms. The Greenway Mediation Center is comfortable, and provides amenities, such as snacks, break areas, and clean rest rooms that make the process more comfortable.
The second issue for most when it comes to settlement is what is the cost in both money and emotional currency. While our mediators do mediation on a daily basis, they know you do not and are there to answer any questions you might have and help lower your anxiety during the process.
Call us today to schedule your mediation and let us show you how the professionals do it.
