It's an exciting time in Australia to consider obtaining a qualification in Celebrancy. With the December 2017 passing of marriage equality legislation it is anticipated that this landmark change will see a significant increase in demand for celebrants in Australia.
Our celebrancy course reflects the role of celebrants who work with their clients to plan and present ceremonies of varied types in the Australian community. These include weddings and community ceremonies, such as naming of babies, renewal of wedding vows, commitment ceremonies and funerals.
The units we deliver address the specific legislative responsibilities of marriage celebrants and link to national registration requirements. We have included the following units so that, upon completion, you'll be eligible to apply for registration as a marriage celebrant with the Australian Attorney-General’s Department:
Celebrants are generally self-employed. They need to have the ability to work outside usual business hours and may need to travel to their clients preferred locations. Given this, the course also includes units that address marketing and managing a small business.
