§12-1838. Program certification – Intent of provision.

12 OK Stat § 12-1838 (2015) What's This?

Any entity, including the Administrative Office of the Courts, “certifying” mediators for its program shall make clear in all communications regarding the “certification” that the mediator is “certified” for that program only. Any mediator certified under the Dispute Resolution Act or qualified under the District Court Mediation Act shall be considered “certified” for purposes of any federal programs that require the use of “certified mediators” or “certified programs”. The intent of this provision is to avoid the misconception that there is one certifying body for mediators in Oklahoma and to permit agencies to utilize available state and federal funds for operation of mediation programs and, where appropriate, for the compensation of mediators.
