Knowing what domestic violence/intimate partner violence/power imbalance (DV/IPV/PI) training you need to become an accredited family mediator or to obtain the advanced collaborative professional designation can be a bit confusing. There is also ongoing training required to maintain these designations. Here is our guide to what you need and which of our upcoming (DV/IPV/PI) training days you can register to meet the applicable requirements.
Initial DV Training
If you are seeking accreditation as a family mediator, you will need 21 hours of DV/IPV/PI training.
If you are seeking your Advanced Collaborative Professional (ACP) designation and do not have 21 hours of (DV/IPV/PI) training in the past two years, you need 21 hours of DV (7 hours of which must be dedicated to the Collaborative Practice DV/IPV/PI protocols).
If you are seeking your Advanced Collaborative Professional (ACP) designation and you have 21 hours of DV/IPV/PI training in the past two years, you need 7 hours of CP DV/IPV/PI protocols training.
Refresher (DV/IPV/PI) Training
If you are an accredited family mediator you need 5 hours of DV/IPV/PI training every year to maintain your accredited family mediator status.
If you are an arbitrator, you need 10 hours of DV/IPV/PI training every 2 years.
