Timeframe and Schedule

Note: This practicum program is under review and may not be offered again. Any approved applications will be placed on a wait list in order they are received, and applicants will be notified if another class is offered. However, you may also want to consider other opportunities to gain experience as we cannot offer any assurance that we will be offering this practicum again..


It takes about four to six months to complete the practicum depending on the participant’s availability for mediations, the volume of cases referred by the court registry, and cancellations by the parties.


Each practicum class begins with two orientation sessions in downtown Vancouver. Attendance at both sessions is mandatory. 

If we are going to hold another class and you are interested in participating, please take the following steps:

1. Complete and mail in the application form.

2. If your application is approved, you will be placed on the waiting list in order of the date your application is received.

3. If we are going to hold another class, we will confirm the orientation dates and offers will be made to qualified applicants on the waiting list. Applicants will have 15 days from the date of offer to confirm their place in the class with a deposit.
