From January 2013 on, the World Mediation Organization (WMO) - formerly known as World-Mediation-Centre - appoints experienced District Managers of the own network as well as external experts in the field of Conflict Negotiation to become local trainers for Mediation and Conflict Resolution. Hereby, the WMO covers educational channels that are both still essential: a) Online Distance Learning, and b) Traditional Classroom Education. This step was found necessary due to the fact that still many potential students could not enrol to the program because of the lack of computer hardware and internet access.
Following the latin slogan: "Pro Salute Omnium" - For the benefit of everybody, the WMO-Team is happy to be able to spread the social competence that will be communicated during the training within areas that were out of reach.
In order to guarantee that the local trainings will be realized confirming the quality guideline of the WMO, all future trainers have to realize the proper course on their own. Hereby the WMO ensures that a future local trainer understands the special educational concept of the program focussing on the relevant topics regarding Conflict Management and it further enables the trainer to act as a proper facilitator due to the fact that the initial chapter of the course concentrates on Peace Education.
The future WMO-Trainer works in a self-responsible way, which means that he / she has to be able to understand the english or spanish course content as stated in the course literature. In case the class does not dominate one of the above mentioned languages, the trainer is free and strictly asked to realize the training in a matching local language, namely the mother tongue of his / her area. Hereby, the WMO enables students to learn the content of the course without any barrier of language. The aim of this educational strategy is to teach students without selecting them by origin, foreign language competece, and cultural background.
