Post Funeral Training Support

After your training, we continue to support you on an ongoing basis. Whether you want us to comment on your marketing materials, check your first scripts before you deliver them, help you with a particularly difficult funeral or just listen and understand – we are always there!

Even the most experienced Celebrant comes across a difficult situation and we assist all celebrants that we have trained at any time, no matter how long it is since you trained. We actively encourage you to keep in touch with us.

Professional Associations

Many Celebrants join a professional association and there are good reasons to do so. Networking with other Celebrants is a real benefit and many offer insurance cover as part of their membership schemes. It is always worth finding out exactly what is offered in terms of benefits and making sure that any liability insurance will provide you with individual cover.

Civil Ceremonies Ltd is the preferred training provider for The Institute of Civil Funerals, who will, subject to their membership criteria, offer 6 months free associate membership for those achieving the Level 3 Diploma in Funeral Celebrancy (RQF). See

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”.

Our Diploma Training Courses are also recommended by the Association of Independent Celebrants who also offer discounts for those who have achieved the Diploma with us
