Why Become a Certified Celebrant?

“Even those who may not ever plan to be a celebrant should attend this training — it will help you be a better funeral director”
Trey Hall, FCCFA President

To keep up with today’s ever changing marketplace as well as tomorrow’s where fewer people are choosing to be attached to organized religions, and not as many people wish to have clergy-led funeral services. Celebrant training offers an alternative option to offer your customers. It’s been found that Celebrant-led services lead to increased customer satisfaction, with families finding them considerably more personal than other funerals they have attended.
Glenda Stansbury of The In-Sight Institute provides this unique, specialized training, which is changing the face of funeral service. It is participant-oriented training where you will have a chance to practice, discover resources and build your skills in working with families and making public presentations.
