How to Become an Accredited Mediator

The National Mediator Accreditation System is a national industry-based scheme that allows a person to be accredited as a mediator and assist with managing or resolving disputes.

Accredited mediators meet minimum standards of training and assessment and are required to comply with approval and practice standards. The Approval Standards set out the minimum training and education requirements for mediators seeking approval and accreditation under the NMAS. The Practice Standards set out the process for mediation and assist parties to understand the process and prepare for their mediation.

Accreditation is for a period of two (2) years and costs $100.00 (GST inclusive) – $90.00 is paid to the Mediator Standards Board with $10.00 retained by the RMAB to cover administration costs.

The requirements for accreditation include:

There is an increasing use of mediation and alternative dispute resolution in Australia. Qualified mediators may find salaried roles within government or not for profit agencies, work as private mediation consultants or use their mediation skills in human resources, business, community, workplace, family, health and educational disputes. Mediators are drawn from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds and may practice as solo mediators or may co-mediate with another mediator.

Better Place Australia Training will provide information and assistance about the accreditation process.

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