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.
If you would like to apply to have your training programme approved, please refer to the MII training programme approval process.
The following training programmes have been recognised as MII approved training programmes. The programmes without an MII approved assessment are to Associate Member level (ie. participants who successfully complete the programme can apply to register as an Associate Member of the MII), and those with an MII approved assessment are to Certified Member level (ie. successful participants are eligible to apply for Certified Member status). Registered Associate Members may submit for MII Certified Member assessment through MII role play assessment.
