Mediation is rapidly becoming a secure and lucrative occupation offering the first option in dispute resolution prior to litigation throughout Australia.
Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners (FDRPs) are in short supply throughout many parts of Australia.
FDR is compulsory in fulfilling the requirements of the Australian Family Court for family dispute resolution prior to family court orders. This enables Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners to issue the required 60i certificate to the Family Court of Australia.
Our mediator qualification courses range from beginner levels to advanced programs for seasoned mediators. We tailor our courses to meet your needs. Begin the enrolment process here.
Our students' satisfaction is what matters to us.
