Experience Qualified Pathway 1

Your Experience Qualified Pathway to NMAS Accreditation

Experience Qualified Pathways

There are two experience qualified pathways for people who are working as unaccredited mediators who wish to become accredited.

  • Experience, education and assessment.
  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) knowledge, experience and assessment.

Both Pathways require an assessment of competence which is generally conducted through a Video Mediation role play by Mediation Institute.

If you meet the requirements that allow you to apply for accreditation via the Experience Qualified Pathway or have completed a qualifying course with another training provider we can offer you the option of completing the NMAS Assessment Program.

 

If you can’t provide the required evidence

You would need to complete the full NMAS training and assessment program which is equivalent to 40 + hour online learning and Video Mediation role plays as a mediator.

We no longer offer assessment only due to the lower than acceptable success rate experienced by applicants who applied for assessment only from people who had trained elsewhere or applied via one of the experience qualified pathways.

Experience, education and assessment

 

  1. You must provide us with evidence that you have conducted at least 100 hours of mediation within the two years prior to your application. Proof may take the form of a log book and CV or a letter from an employer.

    We don’t require confidential information about clients just dates and type of mediation.

  2. Two references from people who can state that you are a competent mediator 
  3. You will have to show that you have completed mediator training, supervision or education to our satisfaction in the previous two years. Generally this would be at least 25 hours of mediation training, supervision or professional development.
  4. You will have to demonstrate competence in an assessment  

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse knowledge, experience and assessment

  1. You must provide us with evidence that you possess appropriate  mediation experience and knowledge of the unique values and  traditions within the culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) community with which you identify
  2. Two references from people who can state that you are a competent mediator
  3. You will have to demonstrate competence in an assessment
