Texas has no state-mandated requirements for mediator certification or licensing. Court appointed mediators are generally expected to meet the requirements of Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code Section 154.052, but the Code allows the court to waive the requirements at its discretion.
In the absence of specific legal requirements, a set of minimum training and experience standards have evolved and are adopted by professional mediation practitioners across the State of Texas. These standards include:
- Find and complete a 40-hour basic mediation training course
- Complete the required number of observations and co-mediations
- Apply for certification
Easy as 1, 2, 3…
We can help you complete the three steps above and become a certified Texas Mediator.
Great! We honor certifications and credentials from other qualified professional mediation associations.
