Course Details

The Funeral Celebrant course is a two-day intensive training program offered by The Celebrants Training College. This is a comprehensive course supplying the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful Funeral Celebrant, and providing guidance for communicating with bereaved clients in an empathetic and compassionate manner.

Covering a vast array of topics, students will gain an understanding of the diverse cultural and religious funeral traditions they are likely to encounter as a celebrant, learn how to work with grieving families, and practice the skills needed to plan, write, and present meaningful funeral ceremonies.

Choose to Study Funeral Celebrancy via Distance Learning

If you are unable to attend the weekend intensive course, The Celebrants Training College also offers the Funeral Celebrant course via distance learning. With six months to complete the distance learning program, you can study at your own pace with all course materials provided, including a workbook with over 100 pages of standout content and instruction.

In addition to the primary funeral celebrant training sessions conducted by our experienced instructors, we also offer short courses teaching students how to help people work through grief, fear, loss, and bereavement. And refresher courses for experienced celebrant’s looking to up-skill, refine and adjust workflows, or wanting to refresh their knowledge after a hiatus from the industry.

Learn from Experienced Funeral Celebrants

The impact a well trained Celebrant has on a funeral service is immeasurable, and lifts the standard of both the individual service conducted, and the entire funeral industry as a whole.

We teach you how to plan, write, and perform an authentic celebration of life carried out with empathy, dignity, and compassion, which will live forever in the hearts of a grieving family.

Our Celebrancy courses have all been created by Sally Cant, one of Australia’s most knowledgeable celebrants with over 23 years experience as a celebrant, teacher, and published author.

Every student attending our on-site weekend intensive courses will receive one-on-one instruction from a qualified and experienced celebrancy trainer, together with practical information on becoming a caring and professional Funeral Celebrant.

Distance learning students will have direct access to tutors via email and phone, and unlimited use of the online forum to interact with other students and teachers.
