PostHeaderIcon Mediation Training

People who train to become mediators come from a broad range of backgrounds including law, counselling, social work, health, education, community work and business.

Mediation is, however, a unique profession requiring specific skills for which there are specific training courses and management skills. Once trained, consultancy and continuing professional development play a key role in providing and maintaining high quality mediators.

The College of Mediators sets training and practice standards for mediators providing mediation in a wide range of situations including, community and neighbourhood issues, workplace issues, family mediation and others. The College does not provide training itself but acts as an independent assessor of training provision; offering recognition to training organisations that provide courses which meet the College's training standards. The College approves both foundation training for those wanting to become mediators and ongoing, continuing professional development training for qualified mediators.

Those who have successfully completed a foundation course approved by the College and adhere to the College's ongoing requirements for practising mediators can become members of the College.
