You will learn to connect and communicate with several participants on different levels, deal with individuals in the groups as well as with group dynamics.  As a professional trainer you can plan well in advance and still you are proficient to deal with resistance and unexpected situations.

During this state of the art course you will gain insight in your personal strength and potential as a trainer, you will learn how to design and deliver a mediation-training program and at the same time you learn from and can be inspired by others. 

After this training you should be ready and able to deliver a mediation training program to students who are new to the field and you will as a side effect obtain advanced substantive expertise on mediation.

This training program will be concluded by a post-training assessment. Trainees who participated in this entire course will receive a certificate as a trained trainer. Trainees who additionally participate in and pass the post training assessment will receive a certificate of accomplishment from Toolkit Company (assessed and Toolkit accredited trainer). Those who chose to complete the course without the assessment will receive a certificate of attendance (trained trainer).

After successfully completing this course and passing the assessment you can opt for a next step in your career as a trainer once you have gained real life practice and experience as a trainer for example through a Toolkit Company post-experience assessment to become an advanced accredited and certified trainer. This advanced certification procedure involves coaching and debriefing on actual training programs and an assessor to sit in on an actual training day during a course that you deliver.
