Community Mental Health Student
I have just completed the Community Mental Health certification and I absolutely loved it. The format of the course was very accommodating to those with busy schedules and still managed to be consistent, informative and interactive. The professors I had were both very engaging, knowledgeable and made already interesting material even better! Their slides, links and discussions were fantastic and I learned a lot that I will carry on with more towards future endeavours. Definitely recommend!
I found the Instructors to be knowledgeable, helpful and understanding. The course was clearly laid out, easy to follow within strict time frames.
The instructors provided in-depth and frank discussion in each module. They provided the students with additional sources of information and a compassionate perspective which prepared us to understand scenarios which could present in actual mediation sessions.
Very active and helpful online learning platform, very active and friendly staff, easy to deal with, experienced instructors, sure I will recommend it to friends.
I am legal professional (Paralegal) who currently works in a position in government where I interact with members of the public. I wanted to increase my mediation / dispute resolution skills so I enrolled in the mediation for Professionals program at Kompass Professional development. I felt the curriculum was top notch, assignments were marked fairly, the price was very fair and the timing was very convenient. I also felt that Louie and Hayley, were both exceptionally qualified instructors (Louie being a Harvard trained mediator and Hayley an accomplished mediator as well as a child and family therapist). I learned many valuable skills that will serve me well as I move through my career. I am a life long learner and very much looking forward to taking more courses with Kompass Professional Development.
As a mediator, I am always looking for training to keep up my skills, learn new techniques and get my continuing professional development credits - this training provides for all of these needs and more! By taking this course I had the opportunity to meet people from all over Canada, receive excellent instruction from amazing ADR professionals and fine tune my writing skills!
I just completed this online course and find it enjoyable and insightful. The admin is responsive and friendly, the course well curated and the instructors are knowledgeable and impressive with their guidance. Based on my personal experience, I highly recommend this online course for any wannabe arbitrator.

I found the training very helpful and provided myself with some very helpful tool. I now have a new perspective on how a mediation should play out. I wanted to thank you for all of your accommodating throughout the process. Grace has been great, her approach to the training is very open and allowed for some great conversations. I also found that the assignments were applicable and really helped ingrain the information we went over in the class. Her experience and ability to provide examples related to the material helped with making the information applicable to what we do here in HR.
