Video Assessment: Sydney 31 January 2019

Date TBA | TBC

Resolution Institute conducts video assessments of candidates who wish to apply for mediation accreditation under the National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS). Our assessments are in compliance with the NMAS standards.

As part of your assessment process you will be provided with a role play scenario, in which you will play the role of a mediator. The session must be 1.5-2 hours long and is video recorded. You must also provide a self-assessment within 24 hours of completion of your role play. An independent assessor will then consider your video recording and self-assessment to determine whether you have 'demonstrated competency’ or ‘not yet demonstrated competency’.

We offer three session times for each video assessment date. Please indicate your preferred time in the registration form. However, slots will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

  • 9.15am
  • 11.45am
  • 2.15pm
