McKenzie Friend Professionals provides training programmes aimed at people who want to represent themselves in a court or tribunal, or for those who want to support and help others navigate the justice system and present their case.

The training schedule takes place for a full weekend, once per month, over a three month period. Participants will need to undertake several hours self  directed learning activities each month and at the end of the three months they can apply for assessment and accreditation.  

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) has evaluated the McKenzie Friend Professional (Microcredential) delivered by McKenzie Friend Professionals Limited and has assessed it to be equivalent to 20 credits (200 notional learning hours) at Level 5 on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF)


The McKenzie Friend Professionals training programme is suitable for people who want to explore the option of self-representation in relation to their own case; or for those who are already engaged in proceedings and want to build the know-how to represent their case in a court or a tribunal. The training programme is aimed at resourcing people with the knowledge and skills to undertake self-representation, or to assist those who do.
