Why Mediation Institute?

We’ve been training online since 2013 because it is flexible and improves accessibility.

Our high-quality approach ensures you learn the skills needed by a mediator at your pace via online learning, tutorials, mentoring and video meeting role plays.

You can join in our dispute resolution skills training courses regardless of where you live, as long as you have access to the internet. 

Once you are qualified we can assist you to apply for NMAS Mediator Accreditation or to meet the requirements for Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner Registration and provide ongoing support as you enter the industry as a dispute resolution professional. 

Our Training Services

We train online because we believe it is better!

Learning a new skill needs to happen over time to allow for integration.

Our delivery approach allows you to work at your own pace and achieve the best possible outcomes with support and mentoring. 

This is where to start as there are no special requirements or educational qualifications needed to enrol in the NMAS Mediator Course.

Pre-requisites apply. Registered Training Organisation: Inspiritive RTO 2117.  Check if you have the qualifications required.

We recommend this course for people who have experience with working with families as a caseworker,  child protection or welfare agency worker, social worker, dispute resolution practitioner, psychologist, police officer or similar background.

Our belief is that one size does not fit all, especially when it comes to learning.  eLearning provides greater flexibility than workshop training and we think that is valuable.
