The Family (Separating Couples) Mediation Training Programme is designed for Mediators who have successfully completed an MII recognised Certified Mediation Training Programme or similar certified programmes which meet the MII criteria.
This training is a requirement for members of the MII who wish to practice as separating couples' mediators. Those applying for this course, must be eligible for MII membership, have applied for such membership and been informed by MII that they are eligible for membership. A learner who is not an active member of the MII at the time of doing a 40 hour programme may not apply retrospectively to have that training recognised by the MII. Their membership would be expected to be Member (having completed an MII 60 hour training programme and passed their assessment). For a person to have the 40 hour training recognised by the MII, they have to be a member of the MII at the time of doing the course.
This training is mandatory for MII Members who wish to practice separating couples' mediation. Doing an MII 60 hour course and passing the assessment does not mean a person will join the MII - nor does the MII oblige a person to do that. The MII has no obligation to any person until such time as they are a paid up member. Recognition of mandatory training only applies to those who are members when they undertake that training.
The cost of this training is €1,250. For payment options please contact: info@roundtable.ie
