Here are all the answers to your prayers. (Humanists also welcome!)

I know that you may have questions if you are looking to take CPD training with us for the first time. You may find the answers here, otherwise talk to us and we’ll help you to find a course that fits your needs.

If you would like a training tailored specifically for you, or your organisation, contact us here and we will talk to you about working with you to support your work.

Where are the courses held?

We are currently planning courses in London and the Midlands.

Do I need to be a celebrant or minister to take a course?

No, these courses are really useful for anyone working in relevant fields. The skills are transferrable to many other professions, including palliative care, bereavement workers, carers or just people with an interest in learning.

Our trainings are designed for people from a variety of professions working with bereaved people, including funeral directors, funeral arrangers, hospice workers, celebrants and clergy, hospitals volunteers, medical professionals, mental health practitioners and other members of the community.

Why should I be doing further training?

We have a duty to constantly improve the service that we currently provide to our clients. Also our courses will help you feel more confident and increase your sphere of knowledge and competence.

Do I get a certification for CPD?

We offer all those who complete a course a certificate of attendance, stating the number of hours studied on that course.

Only the Advanced Certificate in Bespoke Funeral Celebrancy leads to a Certificate of Competence for those who achieve the required standard of professionalism and bespoke service.

Which celebrant organisations will accept this for my CPD requirement?

We are talking with the major celebrant training organisations about accepting our courses as fulfilling their CPD requirements.

How many hours of CPD do I earn?

Ask your registering organisation, as CPD allowance will vary between training and registration bodies.

Emma delivered with sensitivity, passion and fun, keeping everyone fully engaged from start to finish.

The practical exercises that she gave the celebrants to do were stimulating, thought provoking and challenged them to think outside of the box and stretched their creative writing skills to new levels, with those present even saying that they produced levels of writing which they didn’t know they could deliver.

Many celebrants have already fed back that they have taken these new going skills away and applied them to their work in the wider field of celebrancy.
