"I am so glad I took the plunge and did this course, to do a job that is enjoyable and exciting and no two days are ever the same. The course was intense but the support and encouragement I got from my mentors really helped me through it. I would definitely recommend it especially if you’re looking for a change in career, a career that’s rewarding. I’ve learned and gained new skills I never knew I had."

"The course is easy to understand & follow. Its very comprehensive & once completed you are in a good position to commence celebrancy work. You do have to be committed time wise but its not difficult. I learnt things about funerals I didn't know & now understand the origins of wedding symbolic gestures. So informative, writing to do, films to watch & research into topics. A great course!!"
