AMI 0-3 Diploma Starting May 2021 - Venue Announced!


Kia Ora Koutou MMEF Supporters 

Ka kite 2020!

For many of us, 2020 has been a truly memorable year. It's certainly been a year when our resilience, creativity, and cognitive flexibility has been thoroughly tested!  

Much as we would choose not to repeat many of the year's shenanigans, we have all learned a great deal about collaboration, communication, the need for social interactions, and Zoom!  

Before the close of the year, we have a few reminders of AMI Orientation Courses being offered early next year which you still have time to register for and... some great news! 

AMI 0-3 Diploma Starting May 2021 - Venue Announced! 

It has taken a wee while around the COVID-19 lockdowns this year; still, MMEF have secured an ideal Auckland venue for the inaugural AMI 0-3 Diploma commencing in May 2021 with AMI 0-3 trainer Julia Hilson. We couldn't be more delighted! 

The location will be Royal Oak, Auckland. The course venue is the Kauri Room at the C.C.S. head office, which some of you may remember as the environment we used for the MMEF/MANZ 0-3 workshop a few years ago. 

The chosen venue offers a light, spacious ambiance that is central for those traveling across Auckland. The venue is also close to the motorway for those joining us from other locations and within walking distance to shops, cafes, and a range of accommodation options. 

** Applications for the AMI 0-3 Diploma to MMEF by Monday, January 11th **

A wee reminder also that your completed application (with enclosures) for the AMI 0-3 Diploma must be received by Monday, January 11th, 2021. 

In response to your inquiries, we are happy to receive your applications by email to
