National Mediation Assessment


The College of Law offers mediation training courses for participants who are interested in adding mediation to their skill set, or obtaining national mediation accreditation. 

The Nationally Accredited Mediator Training Program can be completed on its own if you do not wish to become nationally accredited. Similarly, if you have completed a mediation training course elsewhere that satisfies the NMAS requirements, but have not yet completed the national accreditation assessment, you may complete this with the College. 

Both the training program and assessment must be completed successfully in order to become a Nationally Accredited Mediator.

For more information about national accreditation see here.

This program complies with the mandatory area of Professional Skills.
