Register for a NMAS Mediator Accreditation Assessment with Mediation Institute. You can apply to be assessed for accreditation by Mediation Institute even if you completed your training with another mediation trainer in Australia or anywhere else in the world.
The NMAS Mediator Accreditation Assessment is only available for mediators who have had recent training or would like to apply for assessment for accreditation based on experience as a mediator.
We recommend that you complete our Mi Mediator Refresher Course rather than just booking in for an assessment if your training was a considerable time ago in order to ensure that you are able to meet NMAS requirements.
