Certification regulations in Germany

In Germany, every mediator may call himself/herself a mediator if he/she provides "suitable training and regular further training" on his/her own responsibility.

The designation certified mediator, on the other hand, has been legally protected since 2012 by section 5 (2) of the Mediation Act. Since 1 September 2017, all persons may call themselves certified mediators who can prove, by means of a meaningful certificate from a training institution

  • that they have successfully completed a training course of at least 120 attendance hours
  • the content of which is precisely specified by a legal ordinance
  • and have mediated a practical case during the training course or within one year thereafter
  • and reflected on it in individual supervision
  • and submitted a written reflection/ documentation of the case.

With the successful completion of 120-hour training, you fulfil the requirements for a training course in accordance with the legal ordinance. We will certify this in the form of a certificate of completion.

After you have mediated or co-mediated a recognized case and received a certificate of supervision, CONSENSUS Campus will issue you with a certificate stating that you are entitled to use the title of certified mediator.

You are then responsible for maintaining the title in accordance with the requirements of the Certified Mediator Ordinance (ZMediatAusbV) through four further supervised practical cases and regular further training.
