The five-day annual training programme, which would be held from August 6, at the university at Fiapre-Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region, is expected to offer the needed training to equip prospective mediators for professional practice.

It adds to the various mediation training programmes conducted by key ADR institutions across the country.

According to the Centre, the programme would be chaired by a retired High Court Judge, Justice Emmanuel Atto Assan, who is the Board Chairman of MCRC.

Mr Osei Poku, Communications Officer of the Centre, explains to the ADR Daily that this year’s training programme has been enhanced in response to the needs of trainees and the demands of the ADR industry.

He noted that the Centre’s focus on professional mediation training is to address the deficit of mediators needed by private and public sector institutions, especially the Judicial Service in enhancing its Court-Connected ADR Programme
