Training Update: February 2021

Final FGC Workshop for 2020

Message from Joanne,


Kids back at school. Work happening again in whatever is the new COVID normal for 2021 in your part of the country. 

Time to get stuck into your course and becoming a dispute resolution professional!

If you have been slow at completing your course please take a bit of time to do your overall learning goal and monthly milestones.  Even if you are on track  GOAL’s are amazing things. Strongly encouraged.  Watch this tutorial to find out why.

NMAS Students

Welcome to our new NMAS Students in January 2021.  Role plays are back in full swing although with a few cancellations or mentoring sessions due to lack of numbers.   Even so there were 34 NMAS Role Play sessions in January! That is up from 18 last year. 

For those who have just started please get involved in the role plays as soon as you can. Don’t do your theory first. Participate as a role player while you are doing your theory. That will give you the best learning outcomes.  The role play scheduler link is in the   NMAS Course.  Why not book in your February role plays now?

FGC Students 

Welcome to our new Family Group Conference Facilitator students joining us for the course and workshop dates in late Feb / March. 

Eve will be running a short information session prior to the February Group Supervision so if you are considering doing this course register to attend on the 9th FEB. 

If becoming a Family Group Conference Facilitator is on the agenda for 2021 you can find out more here. FGC Certificate Course

TRM Students

It is great to see that our Transformative Relationship Mediation students are starting to progress through the course. Getting commitment to role plays has been hard so we’re doing a survey to work out the best times for you. If you haven’t already done so can you please complete the survey task. 


FDR Students

Welcome to our newest FDR Students. We have had a significant increase in enrollments. More role plays than last year by 8 but still very low activity levels. 

We are conducting a survey about your availability for role plays so we can offer them at times that work best for you.  Please use the link on the announcement to let us know.

We have weekly tutorials now for the FDR Course.  Join us if you can but recordings will be put into the course. (booking link is also on the Mi Calendar)

Members are welcome to attend the FDR Tutorials as well.

Enrollments are open for both our  FDR Property Certificate Course and  FDR course

We are back and it is great to see the graduates coming through.

Remember that participating as a role player is VERY valuable as is observing while using the assessment tool to focus your attention.
