As a newly appointed Celebrant in 2017, I was full of hope for what lay ahead but felt an equal sense that I was ill-equipped to be entrusted with significant life rituals.
I was in no doubt that education would be key to acquiring the necessary skills to fully embrace this new role with a sense of confidence and ‘gusto’, so with this in mind I embarked upon an exciting journey of discovery with The Celebrants Training College.
It was on completion of the first weekend module that I was left with a real sense of satisfaction and gratification. Satisfaction that I would gain the essential skills I had been seeking, and gratification for the Tutors who lead each course with enthusiasm and passion. Much like any new path, my journey towards completion of The Diploma of Celebrancy had both high and low points, but I never felt unsupported by either my Tutors or the collegial support network that I’d developed.
Relationships that were forged during my time at the college have developed into highly supportive professional networks, and I would recommend this course of study without hesitation to either prospective or existing celebrants. I firmly believe that this course of study has elevated me to a level of ability far beyond my newly appointed status, and furthermore has given me a point of difference in an increasingly competitive market.
