It ensures a thorough knowledge of the legalities imposed by the Marriage Act and recent changes affecting celebrants. You will be well set up for applying or renewing your appointment with BDM, and dealing with the tricky legal questions that invariably arise in a public role. You will learn about designing ceremonies at the simpler end of the spectrum. To enable smooth processing of enrolments and adequate time for pre-course student preparation, we prefer enrolments at least one week before course commencement. Enrolments after this date incur a 10% surcharge.
