Celebrant Training Course Options

Distance Learning

This is our most popular celebrant training option allowing for up to forty hours face to face tutor contact via Zoom. Distance online learning gives the opportunity to train in the comfort of your own home at a range of times which fit around your work and family commitments.  Our most comprehensive and in depth training option. Find more information on distance learning.

Fast Track Distance Learning | Personal Tuition

This option is the preferred choice for candidates requiring celebrant training with maximum individual tutor contact. Held in the comfort of your own home via  Zoom over 3-5 days depending on course choice. This option is the preferred training option for those seeking prompt independent learning. Find more information on fast track distance learning.

Group Training

The health and safety of our students and tutors is paramount. We have chosen to suspend all our residential courses until January 2023 due to the ongoing COVID situation.

This celebrant training course option is popular with those who prefer to learn as part of a group. Our residential courses are held in our Manchester  training facilities (or a location of your choice) with one tutor and a maximum of three people on each course. Group training is intensive and has proved to be challenging so may not be suitable for everyone. Find more information on group training.
