Note: Only the mediation training programmes listed above are approved by the MII. If you have completed training that you believe might be the similar to the requirements you should submit information about your course for the attention of the MII Accreditation Director. If the Accreditation Director believes that on the face of it the training that you did might be equivalent to an MII approved course, then you will be asked to submit copies of your course papers to have your training assessed for which there may be a fee. As this is a voluntary body it may take up to two months from receipt of your papers for your training to be assessed.

The MII no longer has automatic ‘equivalent’ training programmes, and those trainers whose programmes had been recognised as ‘equivalent’ were informed of this change and given a lengthy period to enable them to have their course approved. July 2012.
