Mediation Institute Training Update March April 2023

It is great to see students moving through your studies much quicker.

We know that a number of our students were heavily impacted by COVID or the various natural disasters that have occurred so if you need some help to get started, reach out to the training team on your course. 

We are working on a number of new programs including: 

  • Conflict Management for One – this is an upskilling course for existing mediators ideally with a few years of experience.  . 
  • Pre-Mediation intensive – this is a practical skills course in pre-mediation client preparation for NMAS mediators to supplement the theoretical coverage of the topic in NMAS Training 
  • A fully revised and renewed NMAS Training Course – this one is waiting for information to be released by the Mediator Standards Board about updated requirements for NMAS training with the next version of the standards.  

In the meantime scroll down for more about our current courses. 

Congratulations to our most recent graduates
