IMI’s Appraisal Committee have approved two new Qualifying Assessment Programs, in Italy and in Austria. QAPs assess experienced mediators, enabling them to gain IMI Certification. QAPs can be searched here.
European Mediation Academy
The “European Mediation Academy” (EMEAC) – Europäische Mediationsakademie is an independent, non-profit distributing and a non-governmental professional membership organization created by the association “Mediation for All” (www.m4all.at). Their programs in Austria (Vienna and Graz) have been approved to assess experienced mediators, and we look forward to additional branches in further countries. EMEAC is the first QAP to be approved in Austria.
