Trainee feedback from other mediation courses indicates that post-course, participants are often left in the dark and let down about pathways into the profession, regulatory requirements and overall career development.

Before, during and after undertaking training, you will have several questions about the course and the profession in general. We are committed to providing a comprehensive resource so that you are never left in the dark. You can access our mediation training FAQ’s below.
