Train to be a Celebrant

Naming & Couples Celebrancy Training


Could you run a fascinating part time business in a growing market? Being a celebrant might be just what you are looking for! You will create and deliver important life events, celebrated by families and couples which will be remembered forever.

At Civil Ceremonies we have trained our own celebrants to conduct ceremonies to a very high standard for over 15 years. We offer the national qualification NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Celebrancy: Naming and Couples (RQF) which enables us to share our knowledge and skills and help you on the way to the most rewarding occupation you could imagine - running your own celebrancy business.

Our celebrant training is for anyone who wants to create and lead ceremonies. Do bear in mind that most ceremonies happen at weekends, although interviewing clients and promotional work will often be carried out during the week.

Our training will provide you with a complete toolkit for a whole new celebrancy business that is satisfying and enjoyable. We suggest that you look at the information here and then call us on 01480 276080 if you would like to talk through the training and the nature of the work. We can put you in touch with celebrants who have taken our training previously..
