Facilitate negotiation and conflict resolution through dialogue. Resolve conflicts outside of the court system by mutual consent of parties involved.
Education: Most of these occupations require graduate school. For example, they may require a master's degree, and some require a Ph.D., M.D., or J.D. (law degree).
OJT: Employees may need some on-the-job training, but most of these occupations assume that the person will already have the required skills, knowledge, work-related experience, and/or training.
Tasks: Use mediation techniques to facilitate communication between disputants, to further parties' understanding of different perspectives, and to guide parties toward mutual agreement. Confer with disputants to clarify issues, identify underlying concerns, and develop an understanding of their respective needs and interests. Prepare settlement agreements for disputants to sign. Set up appointments for parties to meet for mediation. Interview claimants, agents, or witnesses to obtain information about disputed issues. Apply relevant laws, regulations, policies, or precedents to reach conclusions. Conduct initial meetings with disputants to outline the arbitration process, settle procedural matters such as fees, or determine details such as witness numbers or time requirements. Evaluate information from documents such as claim applications, birth or death certificates, or physician or employer records.
License: License not required.
