Our Mediation Training

Training our next generation of mediators and mediation advocates

Why train with us?

We build peace

PF Mediate stands out as a process that teams mediators and mediation advocates who learn both domain knowledge and conflict coaching.  It is designed to engage and guide parties toward a resolution that is enduring by fulfilling underlying interests.  We move broken relationships closer to pathways of repair and healing.

We build expertise

we train mediators in cross-border and inter-cultural understanding and equip them with practical skills and experience possible only from specialist trainers.  We actively seek out trainers who are at the top in their field and widely regarded as some of the best in the world. 


In turn, our trainees mediate with us and become the country-connect for PracticeForte’s global network of mediators and mediation advocates.

SIMI Qualifying Assessment Programme (QAP)

SIMI Qualifying Assessment Programme

Most of our training programmes had been accredited as a SIMI Qualifying Assessment Programme, by the Singapore International Mediation Institute (SIMI). 

SIMI Credentialing System

Successful completion of these programmes will entitle the participants to be accredited by SIMI as a level 1 mediator. The SIMI Credentialing System is a professional standards scheme developed by SIMI to recognise the experience of professional mediators. 

SIMI Credentialing Scheme

It has been tailored and developed with the intention of gradually building up a cohesive and robust pool of professional mediators in Singapore and the region.  Some of the key features of the SIMI Credentialing Scheme are:
- Featured on website
- Enjoy exclusive updates, news and priority subscription to events, seminars and conferences
