Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Celebrants Collective?

The Celebrants Collective is many things, but first and foremost it's a community where celebrants come together for education, support, advice and buddyship. From training to celebrant development, we help celebrants to be the best that they can be. With members from the UK, all over Europe, the USA and Canada, our collective embrace spans far and wide. To learn more about the Collective, visit our main site here.

What qualification do your courses give?

Celebrants who train with us and who successfully complete our courses and all the required tasks and assignments, will become certified Celebrants Collective Celebrants. Our certified celebrants then graduate to our Members HQ where their membership entitles them to become Accredited Celebrants, which requires them to continue their development with us and to be mentored and guided by us.

Will you being offering funeral training?

Yes we will! We expect our funeral course to be finalised in early spring 2021. And the good news is, if you do your wedding celebrant training with us you'll get 50% off of our funeral course.

Will you have in-person training and events?

Yes! It’s our plan to have in-person celebrant training around Europe, but due to the restrictions with Covid-19, we will be waiting until the time is right to launch this side of our training. And along with members of our Members HQ we look forward to when we can hold our in-person workshops, celebrant events and celebrant retreat again!

What is the course format?

Having trained student celebrants and celebrants for a number of years now, we learnt very quickly that everyone learns in different ways. So we have developed our online course to allow for this.

If your application is successful, once you’re all signed up you will get access to your student account where the online course is housed. From here, you will be able to engage with the course, step by step, studying via the course videos and ebooks which accompany the different modules. There will also be tasks and quizzes to complete along the way to help you to embed everything you've learned.

In addition to your personal study, every week there will be live online video tutorials led by us, to help you further your studies and meet other trainees. This is where you can come along to ask questions, share your doubts, highlight any concerns - whatever you want to share or ask to help with your studies. We encourage you to attend as many tutorials as you can. There will be a minimum number of these that we will ask you to attend before we certify you as a celebrant, as it's important for us to have interaction with you (both for your learning and for us to be able to assess your needs).  

Also, within the online course platform itself, you’ll be able to post any questions or comments that you have too. Support will always be on hand for you.

How long will it take to complete?

It will probably be possible to get through all the online course material in 3 full days, but you will also be able to take it at a pace that suits your needs and spread out your learning over weeks or even months if you’d like to. We do encourage you to take your time and not to rush it!

What happens once the course is finished?

Once you have finished the online course in its entirety, and have satisfactorily and successfully completed the required tasks, tests and assignments, as well as having attended our group tutorials, we will sign you off as a Celebrants Collective Certified Wedding Celebrant. But even though you’ll technically be finished with this side of your training, you’ll still have lifetime access to the online course, which includes all updates and improvements, so you will always have the most current information at your fingertips.

You will then graduate to the Celebrants Collective Members HQ where you’ll continue your celebrant development with us as a certified celebrant and we’ll guide and mentor you as you set yourself up as a celebrant and open for business! Yay!

As a Celebrants Collective Certified Wedding Celebrant you will also be expected to continue with us as a member in order to validate your accreditation with us. Your first year’s membership is included in the course price. You can read more about our members HQ here.

When do I pay for the course?

Once you have filled in your application form and submitted it to us, if your application is successful we will email you with the good news. In this email you'll find instructions with the next steps for starting the course and a course registration link where you'll be prompted to sign up and pay for the course, either in full or instalments.

Once we apply, what is the next step? 

We want to go through your application with a fine-tooth comb and really get a feel for who you are. So, we aim to get back to you within 7-10 days of receiving your complete application, if not sooner! If you're successful, we will send you a congratulatory email with further instructions for how to sign up for your course account and to get started! And also information about our group tutorials and other resources.

Please note however, that completing the application form and/or acceptance on to our course doesn't mean that you have to sign up for our course. If you're not 100% sure, or you want to wait a while before starting, you can! And if you decide not to sign up at all, then that's absolutely fine, too!

What if I want to cancel the course, once I've started? 

We would of course be absolutely gutted to hear this, but we'd get in touch with you to find out your reasons for cancelling and help to get the best possible outcome for you.

Will you have in-person training and events?

Yes! It’s our plan to have in-person celebrant training around Europe, but due to the restrictions with Covid-19, we will be waiting until the time is right to launch this side of our training. And along with members of our Members HQ we look forward to when we can hold our in-person workshops, celebrant events and celebrant retreat again!
