SMC will be revising its Associate Mediator accreditation policy with effect from 1 July 2015.
Under the revised policy, participants who complete the Strategic Conflict Management for Professionals (SCMP) Module 1 and 2 workshops, and successfully pass the Mediation Skills Assessment will not be automatically accredited as Associate Mediators on SMC’s Panel of Associate Mediators.
Participants who pass the Mediation Skills Assessment, can however, have their skills formally recognised by applying to be Singapore International Mediation Institute (SIMI) Accredited Mediator Level 1 ( http://www.simi.org.sg/What-We-Offer/Mediators/SIMI-Credentialing-Scheme ).
Participants who complete the Strategic Conflict for Professionals (SCMP) Module 1 workshop before 1 July 2015 are not affected by this new policy.
