what our clients have to say

I recently completed my NMAS mediation training and accreditation with Mediation Institute, and I cannot express how grateful I am for the outstanding experience they provided. Choosing them for my professional development in Mediation / Dispute Resolution was one of the best decisions I've made.

Outstanding course (FDRP and NMAS), from the initial enquiry to course curriculum and trainers/assessors. The sense of community is so valuable, offering support throughout the course via peers as well as the Mediation Institute's remarkable team. Highly recommend this organization for all mediation skills.

I have done a short course with Mi before I start my Graduate Diploma. They have been very supportive and professional. I can access lots of resources, and the network covers many states. The teachers are great and been very helpful. It's been and will be an enjoyable journey.

I looked at a number of NMAS courses and found that the self paced, online nature of the Mediation Institute was perfect for me.

A long time ago while looking for a college to study Mediation, I stumbled across Mediation Institute. What set them apart to me was their passion for mediation, and that said a lot. I have always found that passionate trainers encourage me to be the best I can, so it was a "No Brainer", so I enrolled.
