The Administrative Order includes several important substantive changes including:
- New language clarifying mentorship timing: “A trainee shall not fulfill any of the mentorship requirements before beginning the certified mediation training program which will be used for the pending application.” [page 6]
- New fees effective January 1, 2009 [page 9].
- Review of staff denials for certification or renewal will be made by a 3 person subcommittee of the ADR Rules and Policy Committee which will make a recommendation to the full Committee and the Committee's decision shall be final. [pages 9 -10]
- A new way to complete CME: “Successfully completing a self-directed program that is qualified for continuing education credit by a governmental licensing board.” [page 12] [A good example would be nurses.]
It would be worthwhile to read the entire Administrative Order!
