The training will take place at the Oakland Mediation Center in Bloomfield Hills, and includes a continental breakfast, lunch, snacks and course materials. The training will be delivered by Kenzi Bisbing, OMC's education manager, who has conducted over 120 professional mediation and conflict resolution trainings. She is a highly skilled mediator and has facilitated hundreds of mediations across Arizona, Texas, Ohio and Michigan involving family, divorce, guardianship, truancy and community related issues.
