Mediation Institute Training Update March April 2022

Final FGC Workshop for 2020

How are you going? The first quarter of 2022 has been a bit of a blur for us and many people I talk with as many of us or our loved ones have now had COVID, sometimes a couple of times and of course the terrible floods in NSW and QLD. I hope you are all well and if you have to slow down your studies while you are recovering from whatever curve ball’s you’re dealing with remember that is always an option with us.

We are going to be putting more focus on communication with regards to progress. My assistant Debra checks in with any students we are not seeing logging into your courses and as you can imagine that is a lot of work.  Starting from now we’ll begin deactivating people who are not responding to check in emails or calls after three months. That means you will have to get in touch to reinstate your course. No data will be lost and you can always let us know if you know you’ll be absent for a number of weeks.

We allow you two years to complete your NMAS or FDR Courses with the opportunity for an extension if you need it and are also flexible with the other courses.

March has been another busy month for enrolments in our NMAS and especially our FDR courses so welcome everyone! I want to welcome the new students on our courses who’ve joined us over February.

Congratulations to our recent graduates
