YOUR SATISFACTION IS ABSOLUTELY 100% GUARANTEED
Our seminars have a long history of success! We've been training mediators in Alabama for over 25 years! We are so confident that you will gain the skills you need to become an exceptionally effective mediator at our seminars that we make this promise: If, after completing a training program, you are not satisfied with the seminar content or presentation by the instructor, simply return your training materials to the seminar leader on the final day of training and your enrollment fee will be refunded! No problem, period! We know of no other mediation training organization that offers this type of money-back guarantee on mediation training.
Our training philosophy -- Minimal lecture; informative, engaging interaction! Those five words describe the practical, hands-on approach of our training programs. We provide a comfortable, non-threatening learning environment where simulations, small and large group discussions, media presentations, and meaningful group exercises will enhance your learning experience.
Many participants who attend our program tell us: "This is unlike any other CLE I've ever attended!" We take that as a compliment! (They also tell us, "This is the best CLE I've ever attended!") Our innovative and creative approach to CLE will have you engaged in the course from the moment the program begins until the very end!
Nearly every mediation training seminar we present sells out. Seating is limited. The small group experience will enable each attendee to receive individual attention. Register early so that you can get a seat in the course that is most convenient for you.
Troy Smith began mediating in 1992 and has been a mediation trainer for over 25 years. Over 5000 mediators, attorneys, and judges have completed his training programs nationwide.

In fact, over 82% of the Registered Mediators in Alabama have completed training with Troy. Come find out why our training programs have been the most popular mediation training seminars in Alabama for over 25 years!
