Special requirements
We try very hard to accommodate everyone fully in all aspects of their training. Please advise us of any dietary or other needs in advance of your course and we will do everything we can to make arrangements for you. If you have a disability or additional needs that require ground floor accommodation, please let us know as there are some ground floor bedrooms available at the venue.

Your assessment day
Study for the Diploma will be mainly carried out through your distance learning and supported by Zoom sessions and audio files. However, some of the assessment of your skills needs to be completed face to face. Therefore, we will ask you to choose a suitable date to attend an assessment day at the Management Centre, Cranfield University. The schedule of available dates is on our website.
The assessment day will be almost the final part of your course. We will tell you in detail what you will need to do on the day so that you can prepare and bring your work with you. You will be delivering ceremonies and role playing interviews.

One night of accommodation, (this can be the night before or after your assessment), and food is included in your course fees. Further nights of accommodation can be booked (at additional cost).

The assessment days will be:
• an opportunity to receive external feedback on your practice
• a chance to meet up with other Celebrants

Timings for the day
We will advise you of the exact timings of the day in advance. Approximately 5 hours will be needed to carry out all the assessments for the qualification.

Assessment day information
We will send you joining information in advance of your assessment day. This will include directions and details of anything you need to bring with you.
