Mediators play a vital role in our current court system by advocating for the resolution of disputes in ways other than litigation. Doing this saves the participants and the courts valuable time and money.

JCCC offers the courses you need to become an approved mediator in both Kansas and Missouri, or maintain your certification if you are already in the field.
