The WMDC Mediumship Training Scheme has for decades led the way in the education and development of aspiring mediums, speakers and demonstrators within the SNU.

The Scheme entails a three year course covering various aspects of mediumship training, details of which can be found below. 

In addition to the core elements of the course, we also provide and encourage the opportunity to prepare for and undertake the SNU Platform Accreditation Scheme (PAS) for Speaking and Demonstration and CAAS for Chairing and Administration of Churches.
