What our students say

“The practical aspect of the training with the role plays was the greatest learning for me. Best training I have attended from the learning aspect – very suited to my learning style. Well done to the trainers.” Leanne

“The level of engagement offered, and the willingness to treat the participants as skilled in their own areas was refreshing. Engagement of trainers with participants was excellent. The contrast in styles between the trainers provided a good model for the variability in how to mediate.” Ian

 “Both instructors were highly credible and enthusiastic. They went to great effort explaining mediation best practice and were highly supportive of the course participants. This is an outstanding course (that) has equipped me with a wide range of new skills that I can put into practice in my occupation.” Richard

Further information on the NMAS, the Approval Standards, the Practice Standards and RMABs is available on the MSB website.
