What if I fail the re-accreditation assessment?
If your skills are very rusty or you do not prepare adequately for your re-assessment role play you may find that you are not assessed as competent.
You can request an additional assessment role play for $380.
If you believe that passing your assessment may be challenging we’d suggest that you complete the Gap Training and Assessment Course.
After successfully completing your NMAS Re-accreditation Role Play assessment and the course work you will be eligible for re-accreditation as NMAS Accredited Mediator.
We will provide you with a Certificate of Competence indicating that you have completed the refresher course and competence assessment with Mediation Institute.
