CME Classes

Classes begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude by 3:30 p.m.  Coffee and bagels are available at 8, and lunch is provided, and is a "working lunch."  Both Course A and Course B provide 8 hours of live CME; 4 hours of Ethics, 2 hours of Domestic Violence training, 1 hour of Diversity and 1 general CME hour.  Course A and Course B also provide 7.5 hours of CLER credit, including 5 hours of Ethics.  Some mediators choose to take both classes, which provides all required CME hours for the 2 year reporting cycle.

Certified mediators in Florida must complete 16 hours of CME every two years in order to maintain their certification. The requirements are as follows:

1. As part of the 16 hours all mediators must have 4 hours of mediation ethics and one hour of diversity education;

2. Circuit and County mediators must also have 2 hours of domestic violence education;

3. Family and Dependency mediators must also have 4 hours of domestic violence education.

Florida Bar (CLER) courses count toward CME if applicable to your mediation practice.
