The MII actively encourages learning and participation at all levels of mediation and has six different levels of membership ranging from approved mediation professionals to those who have recently completed or are currently engaged in mediation training and those who have a general interest in mediation but with no wish to practice.

Only Practitioner and Certified Members who hold a current MII practising certificate are approved by the MII to mediate and are bound by the MII Code of Ethics to only mediate where they have the appropriate training, knowledge and competence to effectively mediate.
A list of MII accredited Mediators is available in the MII 'Find a Mediator' section.
The MII accredits mediation training courses which meet set training standards.
The purpose of CPD is to ensure that Mediators keep their knowledge and skills up to date for the benefit of users of their service and for their own personal and professional development.
