CRS requires all mediators to pass a certification program including: an intense State-approved, 40- or 48-hour mediation training; observation/co-mediation time; and regular participation at in-service training sessions to sharpen techniques. To remain accredited, a CRS mediator is periodically re-assessed to ascertain skills.
