The FIDReC Accreditation of Mediators (specialised in financial disputes) Scheme ensures the high standards and quality of FIDReC's Mediators by setting requirements for, amongst other things, competence in mediation skills as well as actual experience in mediation and the successful resolution of financial disputes.

All FIDReC Mediators have to successfully complete the FIDReC Training Programme for Mediators of Financial Disputes (FTPM) before they can be accredited as a FIDReC Accredited Mediator (specialised in financial disputes).

To encourage continuous learning and the achievement of greater levels of competence and expertise, Mediators who satisfy more stringent requirements will be awarded higher levels of Accreditation - Advanced, Merit and Distinction.

In general, a period of 12 to 18 months is required to attain a Level 1 FIDReC Accreditation.
