Mediators are certified by the Supreme Court to be mediators in a particular field. You can be certified as a family law mediator, as a civil mediator, as a county or as a dependency mediator. You receive a certificate after you complete the training, have observed a few mediations, and they make you pass a background check. Arbitrators are a little different. They have qualifications. Once you meet those qualifications, you can then arbitrate, but they aren’t issued a certificate in the same way, but all mediators and arbitrators are required to follow certain rules of ethics that all mediators must follow.
