Much of the mediator accreditation conversation that has occurred recently in Australia has been focused on threshold mediator accreditation issues. For example, the National Mediation Accreditation Standard (NMAS) discussion has largely related to entry into practice, with some reference to practice requirements, ethics and continuing education and practice requirements. The documentation and proposal of the Community, Health and Industry Skills Council in the family area and the Graduate Diploma that has been designed is again oriented towards the initial ‘hurdle’ of accreditation.
