International Expertise in Mediation Training and Certification

Who are we?

Where do we come from?

 

IM-Campus is empowered by CONSENSUS – a well-known mediation and consulting company (www.consensus-group.de) based in the South of Germany (Stuttgart). Its focus is on mediation, ADR, leadership and organisational development.  Our team of more than 15 mediators and experts for ADR and conflict resolution from different professional backgrounds   provides mediation and other conflict resolution processes across all industries, different organisations and individuals.

 

CONSENSUS Campus is a best known institute for high standard  mediation and ADR training offering advanced courses to become a certified mediator provided by face-to-face seminars in different German cities such as Stuttgart, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Brussels and Frankfurt am Main and international online courses (www.consensus-campus.com). Our 120 hours mediation training programs are provided in German and English language. The mediation training certificates awarded are recognised and in great demand. Our dispute resolution training is based on the German mediation training law. Moreover, CONSENSUS Campus offers the first and only internationally certified mediator training program in Germany by the IMI – International Mediation Institute (https://imimediation.org/program/consensus-campus/).

Our work is based on three pillars: Conflict Resolution, Mediation Training & Research in a national and international context.

To spread mediation and ADR, CONSENSUS is the leading institution of a project founded by the European Union (Erasmus+ Program): In-Medias (www.in-medias.eu). Together with seven partners from nine countries the aim is to implement a European mediation training. 

Furthermore, we organise and support International Peace Education Projects and Research Projects in the field of mediation and conflict studies. Finally, the ICC Mediation Competition in Paris is key to our international network, educational approach and access to mediation.

IM-Campus is based on this profound professional mediation training offered in Germany.

  • Our belief is that ADR and especially mediations lead to sustainable and cooperative solutions.
  • Our belief is that diversity leads to new perspectives.
  • Our belief is that peaceful solutions to conflict lead to a better quality of human life.
  • Our belief is that human beings can react and respond in a healthy way to challenging situations.

This is why we came up with a concept to give access to high quality mediation training to participants from all over the world. We are proud of the community spirit among our participants making our concept sustainable and affordable for people globally. Our dispute resolution training is enriched with international and  intercultural aspects given by well-known high qualified and awarded trainers from different professions and countries and our participants from around the world.
