Ongoing Professional Development


The 2019 OPD year is a little different as it does not have a Compulsory Activity provided to us from the Attorney-General’s Department Marriage Law and Celebrants Section.

However, the Marriage Law and Celebrants’ Section Registrar has approved some topics that celebrants must have selected in order to accurately fulfil their OPD requirements.  Each OPD provider will have a differing list of those compulsory choices.

During 2018 we received great feedback on our trainers and curriculum, the feedback received from the “good to excellent” range nationally we scored 97.35%.  We have listened carefully to your feedback in terms of which new topics may be of interest.  We look forward to meeting up with colleagues from the many years of OPD training, and look forward to meeting our new colleagues.

In our Registered Training Organisation we specialise only in celebrant training, it is our sole focus and our passion. Thank you to all who trained with us in the previous years, we are grateful for your business and loyalty. 


Our fees range for a 5 hour selection from $120 to $165.  You can easily enrol and pay online, or pay via credit card, cheque or money order.   

Our fees have been from the beginning of OPD training the most competitive.  We believe they are very fair in terms of the quality of trainers, curriculum and resources.
