University-trained celebrants

Update: 19-Aug-2012

Unfortunately, the Grad. Dip in Civil Ceremonies course is no longer offered at Monash University. However, Monash-trained Marriage & General Celebrants are still available to assist you with your ceremony. See below for a link to the CCGA website.

Did you know that Monash University trains Civil Celebrants? There is a large number of providers offering training for Civil Celebrants but Monash University actually offers a Graduate Diploma in Civil Ceremonies. At the end of this course, Monash Celebrants graduate with a well-rounded understanding of the place of ritual and ceremony in today's society.

According to Monash's website, "Students acquire an understanding of the history and cultural variety of rites of passage as practised in the Australian community. They learn to use music and literature creatively in ceremony, to identify the emotional, legal and ethical aspects of rites of passage, and to develop the skill to respond sensitively to the needs of their clients. In summary, the curriculum prepares graduates to practise as professional, confident and successful celebrants."

As a Monash graduate, I can vouch for the quality of training provided! If you're interested in locating a Monash graduate to celebrate your special occasion, visit the Civil Celebrants Graduate Association (Monash) and you'll find a fantastic array of Celebrants to choose from.
