Funeral Celebrant Course
Funeral Celebrant Course
starting Wednesday 1st March - an online combination of evening and weekend sessions

This course is designed for those who wish to be competent to design ceremonies for funerals and memorials and confidently officiate as the funeral celebrant at these events. It also provides an opportunity for continuing education for experienced funeral celebrants to explore new dimensions in their work, and other practising celebrants who decide they are ready to move into this area. This course will be delivered entirely by Zoom, which has the benefit of increasing the capacity of students to incorporate such technologies in their ceremonial kete.

Marriage Celebrant Mastery
Marriage Celebrant Mastery
27 April - 25 May 2023 in weekly evening sessions

This course is for those who wish to be fully trained as professional marriage and civil union celebrants. It builds upon our prerequisite Marriage Celebrant Essentials (MCE) course and therefore assumes a thorough working knowledge of the legalities imposed by the Marriage Act and the Civil Union Act.* We will explore the full design process and a spectrum of creative enactments that can be incorporated into contemporary ceremonies of commitment. You will delve into interviewing, vow coaching and rehearsals, as well as how to enhance both your ceremony writing and delivery.

The course is delivered in 5 evening sessions 7.00pm – 9.30pm

*Note: Practising celebrants who have already conducted 5+ ceremonies may apply to the TCS Director for direct entry into this course (although if interested in the differentiation and offering of registry and registry-style ceremonies, MCE is still recommended as a pre-requisite)

Marriage Celebrant Essentials
Marriage Celebrant Essentials
starting 4th April 2023

This very popular, on-line, short course provides all the essentials for starting out on the right foot as a marriage celebrant. 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.

Those interested in crafting fully-personalised ceremonies will be invited to continue into our more advanced module Marriage Celebrant Mastery, which conveniently flows on later in the month. If you are serious about being well-prepared as a marriage celebrant, take a deep dive and enrol for both now as places are limited!
