The Australian National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS) commenced on 1 January 2008. NMAS is a national industry based scheme which relies on the voluntary agreement of mediators to comply with the approval and practice standards on an ongoing basis.
NMAS is intended to establish a base level of competency and practice for all accredited mediators.
Mediate Today was amongst the first organisations to be registered to accredit mediators under the NMAS. We can help you whether you would like to become nationally accredited for the first time, wish to renew your accreditation or to gain mediation skills.
Mediate Today provides a 5 day mediation training program which meets the NMAS training requirements and provides skills assessment for national accreditation. We also conduct a range of one and two day workshops and seminars in particular practice areas to help you maintain your skills and to learn new ones.

MEDIATOR STANDARDS BOARD
The new National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS) commenced with effect from 1 July 2015. The NMAS now incorporates new Approval Standards (Part II) and Practice Standards (Part III) which replace the earlier Standards.
The Mediator Standards Board (MSB) administers the accreditation (and re-accreditation) of mediators in Australia in accordance with the NMAS. Accreditation is for a period of two (2) years and is carried out through an RMAB such as Mediate Today for a fee set by the MSB. This fee is currently $100.00 (GST inclusive) $90.00 of which is paid to MSB and $10.00 retained by the RMAB to cover administration costs.
Accredited mediators have met the minimum standards of training, continuing professional development and assessment prescribed by the new NMAS (see below):
