Practitioner Members and Certified Members may apply for an MII Practising Certificate, which is issued on an annual, calendar year basis. Only members who hold a current MII Practising Certificate are approved by the MII to mediate. Practising MII Mediators are bound by the MII Code of Ethics and Practice and may only mediate where they have the appropriate training, knowledge and competence to effectively mediate.
To be issued with an MII Practising Certificate you must:
The Practising Certificate is valid to the end of the calendar year in which it is issued.
The MII believe that to maintain a high professional practice standard a Mediator needs to continually develop professionally. MII approved Mediators are obliged to complete a minimum, annual CPD requirement in three specific areas of practice development including mediation practice (or role play training), case consultation and mediation training and education. See CPD Requirements for details. MII Mediators must be in compliance with MII CPD requirements in order to receive their annual Practising Certificate.
The MII conducts random CPD audits of MII approved Mediators on an annual basis.
If your signed, required documents and appropriate fee for registration are received up to 31 January of any year you will be deemed to have registered on 1 January in that year.
While the MII will remind members of their registration requirements, it is the member’s responsibility to register in a timely fashion. The profiles of Members who have not renewed their annual membership by 1 February will be removed from the website without further notice.
On issuance of your Practising Certificate before the end of February your practising certificate will be dated 5 days after your papers are received and your profile will be reinstated and you will not be charged any extra fee. If you fulfil your registration requirements after the 31st January an administration fee of €50.00 will apply on top of the renewal fee as is the case for new or lapsed members.
Please note, applications will be deemed to have been dealt with 5 working days after receipt.
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.
