All training programmes approved by the Mediators' Institute of Ireland are assessed against specific criteria based on the competencies required for the various levels of membership. Please note that while the following listed training programmes have been approved by the Mediators’ Institute of Ireland (The MII), the MII is not responsible for the administration or delivery of these programmes. Also, to become a member of the MII, participants must register directly with the MII.

Any person who is on an MII approved training programme is entitled to apply for free membership of the MII under the Trainee Member scheme - see Trainee Members page for details and registration information - and any person who successful completes an MII approved training programme is eligible to apply for MII membership at either Associate or Certified level depending on the status of the programme.

New Quality Assurance Standards for MII Approved Programmes have been agreed by Council and will be posted shortly.

 

Approved Programmes to Associate and Certification Status

Registered Associate Members may submit for MII Certified Member assessment through MII role play assessment.
