We provide a 40 hour Basic Training class and a 30 hour Family Training class, both of which meet the requirements of Section 154 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code and the Texas Mediation Trainers Roundtable.

The Family Training course consists of 30 hours, in accordance with the standards prescribed by the Texas Mediation Trainers Roundtable. (A minimum of 24 hours is required by Section 154.052 (b) of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code.) Family Training is held twice a year, and consists of two weekend sessions (all-day on Friday and Saturday for two weekends).
