It is my pleasure to inform you also that our new 50 hour Professional Mediation training program will be launched in July this year and it is now enhanced and contains new extra content. We have included new and more recent and relevant content to the ever evolving conflict scenarios in our African context and in tandem with current international standards for professional mediation training. Our new program contains the latest techniques in mediation practice that will aid the practitioner to navigate through difficult conflict terrains. The new program has two components, The first one is training and the second one is assessment. The Assessment phase has three components: 1), Role-plays; 2) a Reflective Practice; and 3) a Written Examination. Those who have already undergone our professional mediation training program will not miss anything; they will gradually be brought to speed on the new programs through our regular refresher courses and quarterly round table seminars.
