Family Mediation is a satisfying, flexible and lucrative career path if you can commit to a short term investment of training time by completing a CHC81115 Post Graduate Diploma of Family Dispute Resolution that can qualify you for a career which consistently grows in demand.

What is a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner?

A family dispute resolution (FDR) practitioner is an independent person who helps people affected by separation or divorce to resolve their parenting disputes. As it is compulsory for couples to attend an FDR practitioner prior to attending the Family Court of Australia, FDRPs are in high demand and is an excellent career path for mediation professionals.

To be qualified as an FDR practitioner you must meet the accreditation standards in the Family Law (Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners) Regulations 2008. The Graduate Diploma of Family Dispute Resolution will meet this requirement and allow the FDRP to issue section 60I certificates, which are required by the Family Court of Australia.
