SIMI Welcomes New Partner - Consensus GmbH


SIMI is pleased to welcome Consensus GmbH as our newest partner. Consensus’ International Mediation Course has been accredited as a Registered Training Program (RTP) as at 7 July 2023.

"The partnership between IM Campus and SIMI is driven by the shared values of quality, certification, and recognition. We believe that by working together, we can deliver exceptional education, backed by rigorous quality standards, internationally recognized certification, and enhanced recognition in areas of growing importance.” – Dr. Andrea Hartmann-Piraudeau, Founder and Director, Consensus GmbH

The International Mediation Campus (IMC), empowered by Consensus, is the leading institute for online mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Training based in Europe. It provides training in English, Turkish, Farsi, French, and will soon introduce programmess in Spanish and Arabic. 

IMC equips individuals with the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate complex conflicts and forge mutually beneficial resolutions with a commitment to educational excellence. IMC’s international approach, enriched by diverse perspectives and cultural exchange, empowers participants to become effective mediators and catalysts for positive change in their communities and across borders. IMC stands at the forefront of mediation education, driving a worldwide movement towards peaceful dialogue, understanding, and lasting solutions.

“IM Campus made the strategic decision to partner with SIMI for several compelling reasons. First and foremost, we were impressed by SIMI's commitment to quality. As an educational institution, we believe that maintaining high standards is crucial, and SIMI aligns perfectly with this philosophy. By partnering with SIMI, we can ensure that our educational offerings meet the highest quality benchmarks.

“Secondly, accreditation holds great importance to us, and we recognize the value it brings to our participants. We firmly believe that having our programs accredited by a respected international institution adds credibility and authenticity to the education we provide. It provides a tangible validation of the skills and knowledge gained by our participants, making their achievements more recognized and respected in the professional sphere.” – Dr. Andrea Hartmann-Piraudeau, Founder and Director of Consensus GmbH

For Consensus, recognition is a vital aspect of their partnership with SIMI. The organisation not only strives to deliver top-notch training but also aims to have their certificates acknowledged globally. Consensus believes that as the field of mediation continues to grow, particularly in the geographical area where SIMI is located, it becomes crucial for their certification to be recognized in those emerging areas. This collaboration will allow Consensus to tap into SIMI’s network and ensure that their certificates carry weight and significance in regions where mediation is on the rise.
