Train to become a Funeral Celebrant
The only National Qualification in Funeral Celebrancy - your stepping stone to a new profession!
The training we offer has now been recognised by Ofqual as the national standard for the sector and we are proud that our expert training has won such unprecedented recognition.
Since we founded the concept in 2002, we have trained hundreds of successful celebrants who practice throughout the UK. These celebrants have won respect and trust across all segments of the funeral industry.
There is a growing demand for special individuals to conduct very special funerals.
If you believe that you have the necessary skills to enter this new profession, then please look at all the information provided here and then call us to discuss the training programme. This is the starting point to the most rewarding work you could imagine.
The continuing development of skills is crucial in this work and therefore we have developed a range of further courses (see list on the right) that ensures that funeral celebrants meet the demands of this very specialised work. The decision to train for a new career in funeral celebrancy is a big one and many successful celebrants say that their lives have been changed completely.
The decision about what type of funeral ceremony you wish to offer is of course yours, but we will equip you to offer civil funerals or funerals that have no religious content at all.
A Civil Funeral is defined as: "A funeral, which is driven by the wishes, beliefs and values of the deceased and their family, not by the beliefs or ideology of the person conducting the funeral".
Civil Ceremonies Ltd is the preferred training partner for The Institute of Civil Funerals, who will, subject to their membership criteria, offer 6 months free associate membership for those achieving the diploma.
