Led by highly experienced lawyer mediators, this six day course is specifically designed for law professionals and meets the mediation education and training course requirements for national mediator accreditation under the National Mediation Accreditation System (NMAS). 

The course is divided into two parts - a five day training workshop providing participants with the requisite number of training hours to meet the requirements of the NMAS, followed by accreditation assessment on day six. It will be delivered as a hybrid of online, over a Zoom platform and in-person learning in an interactive format with access to course materials using the Bar’s online Learning Management System (LMS). On successfully completing the assessment participants will be eligible for NMAS accreditation.  The Victorian Bar is one of Australia’s largest Recognised Mediator Accreditation Bodies (RMAB) for lawyers in Australia.
