Learning to communicate beauty and dignity through ceremonial writing is an essential component of becoming a successful celebrant.

This course will teach practical techniques for communication with clients of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, writing of ceremonial materials for weddings, funerals, and baby naming days, and also provide tips for being an effective orator and public speaker.

The Business & Marketing course will teach you to brand and market yourself, how to network within the industry, and offer advice on administration and technology for running a small home based business as a celebrant.

The Diploma can only be gained by completing the 3 x weekends (5 modules) and the associated assessments tasks which are completed after the weekend training.  If topics 1, 2, 3 and 4 are completed (minus the Funeral module) - a Certificate of Celebrancy will be issued.
