This training is specifically designed for anyone interested in understanding the process of the funeral service and in learning how to personalize and design meaningful funerals or tributes. A successful celebrant is one who enjoys working with people, has writing and public speaking ability, as well as listening and consulting skills. Our seminars have attracted a wide-variety of participants including: funeral directors; preneed and aftercare specialists; hospice professionals; clergy; chaplains; business people; and students.
