To become an accredited family mediator, you first need to attend an FMC approved foundation training course. After this, you can register with the FMC as working towards accreditation, and then start work to build up a portfolio of evidence that you meet the competencies outlined in the FMC standards framework.
A list of approved foundation training course providers can be found here.
Once you have completed you training, you must:
- join an FMC Member organisation;
- find a PPC. See here for a list of PPCs with capacity to take on mediators working towards accreditation; and
- register with the FMC as working towards accreditation.
You may then start work on your portfolio for submission.
A more detailed explanation of the requirements between training and accreditation, as well as the post-accreditation requirements, can be found by reading more about the FMC’s professional standards.
