Montana Mediation Association’s Certified Mediator designation (CM) is an acknowledged mark of expertise and professionalism. MtMA confers the highly esteemed CM designation only upon the successful completion of an extensive mediation curriculum and substantial experiential requirements.
 a CM is an Expert Mediator
Too often, divorce proceedings and child-custody disputes take place in an unnecessary adversarial forum when families are navigating the dissolution of a marriage. Family mediation is the preferred alternative to expensive, court appearances. Mediation provides compassionate support to help parents customize parenting plans to their family’s unique and individualized needs. Family Certified Mediators must complete additional, family-centered training, with mentored involvement, before working with children and families.

conflict before entering the courtroom
Regardless of the diversity of specializations present within our profession, the CM designation represents a higher standard of core knowledge for mediation practitioners. Annual, continuing education requirements augment the respected CM designation ensuring MtMA mediators reflect the highest caliber of best practices.
whatever the conflict: Choose an Expert ~ Choose a CM!
