Face-to-Face Training arrives in New Zealand

Face-to-Face Training arrives in New Zealand

The Celebrant Training College is growing!

What an exciting time it is to become a celebrant in New Zealand. Now that the Celebrant Training College has expanded to New Zealand shores, you can have the comfort and confidence of face-to-face celebrancy training, while obtaining your Diploma of Celebrancy over just three weekends – (along with your assignment work).

Our face-to-face training provides you with another level of personalised access to our friendly, professional trainers above our online course. Of course our celebrancy online training course is still available anytime. Now you can ask questions on the spot, learn from other attendees' queries and concerns – ideas and concepts which you may never have thought of on your own – plus gain the benefit of garnering knowledge from your trainers' and peers' personal experiences.

Our face-to-face training also provides an immediate opportunity for you to meet new celebrants-in-training and grow your own contact and friendship network within the New Zealand wedding and funeral industry – a great source of shared knowledge, support and referrals for the future.

While training is not mandated in New Zealand, we, along with the Celebrants Association of New Zealand, feel that celebrants play an incredibly important role in society and their job shouldn't be left to under-trained, unprofessional individuals. After all, the vital service a celebrant provides to couples and families, through weddings and funerals, is for a once-in-a-lifetime event. Your clients require much guidance and support during these momentous occasions and may easily be scarred by unscrupulous or unskilled operators who don't have the appropriate training – a lesson many families will remember for their lifetimes.

If you've been considering becoming a celebrant in New Zealand, you won't find better training, or a more supportive company that The Celebrant Training College. Here's what one our recent attendees had to say:

"Greetings from New Zealand!

I have just completed your wonderful Course with Dudley and Wendy. It was just marvellous, riveting, so interesting, informative and funny, with two wonderful facilitators who were so encouraging and supportive. They were a formidable team bouncing off each other and energising the trainees with their professionalism and experience. Personally I couldn't wait for the second day and to do it all over again. I'm hoping, depending on my roster, to be on the next Course all going well and am very much looking forward to it. Thank you for such a great Course and providing us with the tools to be a success." Sue from NS

So how does our Celebrancy Training Course work? Three weekends is all it takes – along with some work on assignment at home. Our intensive training provides all the knowledge and resources you need to attain your Diploma of Celebrancy and start your own business.

Our training will provide you with everything a celebrant needs to know: from operating within the law, to the practicalities of conducting a ceremony, to operating a small business. The course itself is divided into five sections. Topics 1–4 relate to marriage ceremonies and business activities. Topic 5 relates to funerals only. Celebrants wishing to complete only the marriage portion of the course may complete Topics 1–4 and receive a Statement of Attainment, rather than a full diploma.

Our next New Zealand course dates are Sat 19th November and Sun 20th November 2016.
