Colorado "Professional Mediators" - Colorado Council of Mediators Announces New Name

first posted on: 5/15/2004

image of Colorado mediators / mediation organization CCMO logoThe Colorado Council of Mediators has adopted a new name for those mediators meeting its "Recommended Guidelines for Mediator Education and Training."

Effective June, 2004, the Colorado mediators' organization changed the name of Guidelines-qualified members from "Guidelines Member" to "Professional Mediator, CCMO" or "Professional Mediator, Colorado Council of Mediators."

CCMO's governing Board made the change to clarify that Colorado alternative dispute professionals undergoing the requisite training and practicum have a professional "as opposed to merely casual" commitment to mediation as a profession.

Colorado CCMO "Guidelines-Qualified" and "Professional" Mediators

Colorado law does not provide for formal certification of mediation practitioners. The Colorado Council of Mediators (CCMO) and the Family Law Section of the Colorado Bar Association developed the Recommended Guidelines for Mediator Education and Training "to assist consumers, attorneys, judges, and other professionals in selecting" Colorado mediators.

CCMO's Guidelines (and thus, the new Colorado "Professional Mediator" status) require:

  • a specified course of mediation training and education;

  • a tenure of experience including oversight by an experienced mentor;

  • active participation in continuing education in mediation process and in substantive areas of practice.

CCMO has independently reviewed our mediators' qualifications in this regard, and determined that they meet all these standards of excellence for Colorado mediators' training, education and experience. Both Larry and Chris have thus been recognized by CCMO as Professional Mediators.

 

Also, see our “Spotlight” or other feature articles, where we discuss in detail other Colorado legal, procedural (including divorce law and family mediation) or parenting topics. Presently, we look in depth at:

An additional highly recommended resource for Colorado divorce law information is Colorado Springs, Colorado family lawyer Carl Graham's Colorado Divorce and Family Law Guide.
