Bridge Training is a one-day training with instructional hours and roleplay scenarios that was developed to meet the needs of two groups of participants:

  • Those who need to brush up on their skills because of the amount of time that has passed since they have their basic mediation training, have practiced, or have participated in CMEs (continuing mediator education); and,
  • Those who took a basic mediation course that was not pre-approved by the Nebraska Office of Dispute Resolution and would now like to become Parenting Act-approved or practice in areas of Restorative Justice in the state



Family mediation training is an advanced training designed for individuals who want to work with families where parents have separated or are in the process of separating. The main focus of Family mediators in Nebraska is the development of parenting plans for minor children when parenting from two households. For most families, approaching a parenting plan from the perspective of how they can best co-parent builds a plan for family success. Families experiencing a higher level of conflict may rely on a mediator to help them develop a plan for parallel parenting. Participants in this training typically fall into one of three categories.

  • Those seeking to become Parenting Act-approved mediators in Nebraska
  • Active Nebraska attorneys who are not planning to apply for Parenting Act-approved mediator status but who seek to improve their skills as parenting plan mediators
  • Individuals seeking to practice as mediators outside of Nebraska who will not be seeking Parenting Act-approved status in Nebraska



CME (Continuing Mediator Education) Opportunities Include

  • Archived (Video) Webinars
