The National Mediation Accreditation System (NMAS) is a set of standards for mediators and mediation training programs in Australia.
The One Pacific NMAS Mediation Training is a program that helps individuals develop the skills required to become a nationally accredited mediator. The program consists of a minimum of 38 hours of training, which includes a minimum of 5 days of intensive workshop, online preparatory reading, and a final assessment. The assessment tests the candidate's ability to mediate a common dispute in a role-play scenario. Successful completion of the program leads to NMAS accreditation, which must be renewed every 2 years by meeting renewal requirements.
