HUMANIST CEREMONIES: CELEBRANTS’ INITIAL TRAINING
2017 & 2018 COURSE SCHEDULE AND FEES

Below are the celebrant training course schedule and fees for 2017 & 2018.

We advise anyone interested in applying for the training to ensure their application is submitted as far in advance as possible, as the application process is thorough and can take a number of months in some instances. Unfortunately we cannot always allocate trainees to their first choice of course dates, as we may need to prioritise under-represented areas. However, we endeavour to offer a training place to all successful applicants as soon as possible.

Where training locations have not been specified below, they will be decided nearer the starting date of the relevant course.

Please note that in order to apply for training as a new applicant, you should read the training information guidelines.

Existing celebrants must complete an additional training application form, which can be downloaded from the Celebrants’ Area of Humanists UK website.
