The Institute of Professional Celebrants

Training to be a celebrant isn't just about learning to take funerals and weddings so our training offers you more. It is also about learning to cope with families in stressful situations and about running your own business as a self employed celebrant as well as many other things.

We'll cover the structure of the industry both in the UK and overseas. You'll learn the legal bits you must understand. We'll teach you the tips, tricks and techniques that transform a presentation from "ok" to "fantastic". We'll help you build your web and social media presence and give you tried and tested examples of ways to build and track your business.

This course will take you way beyond the minimum required to pass your NOCN Level 3 Certificate in Funeral and Wedding Celebrancy qualification. By the end of the course you will be ready to step into this exciting and varied new career with a plan to execute and a community to support you along the way.
