The International College of Celebrancy courses, established in 1994, are the original courses of distance education packages for celebrants. This comprehensive course is presented in our face to face classes as well as by distance education. This is NOT an online course, it is practical and requires time and effort commitment from you. We are pleased to present the following curriculum for our Diploma and General courses as well as those of Nationally Recognised Training (approved by the Australian National Training Authority ANTA). We also conduct general courses that are particularly relevant to celebrants health and well-being, and are supportive of the skills of the celebrant.

Our courses form the basis for celebrancy courses presented by approved associate Educator Trainers such as Swinburne University, Wodonga TAFE, and Monash University.  Until recent changes to TAFE funding in Victoria, Victoria University was providing the ICC Certificate IV in Celebrancy course. Due to their commitment to the depth and integrity of this course, they are recommending this course to applicants for the 2013 year.
