After completing the program will certificates be awarded? Would we be permitted to state that we are mediators or mediators and arbitrators?

You'd have to contact LESA to ask about certificates. I imagine that they do, but I don't think they offer credentials such as C.Med (ADRIC and ADRIA do). Mediation isn't a regulated profession, anyone can call themselves a mediator, although training would make them much more effective, and likely assist in bringing in clients, especially if you're looking to be listed on mediation rosters.
