Ongoing Professional Development
“The Association of Civil Marriage Celebrants of S.A. (Inc) have used Australian Celebrations Training to conduct the OPD for our Members for the last 3 years. We have chosen this company because all of the course sessions we have chosen have covered what the promotional material outlined. The many choices available ensured the best possible choices for our members so relevant to their roles as Marriage Celebrants. All our courses have been presented by Beth O’Brien, who was organised, knowledgeable, helpful and an effective communicator. We could look nowhere else to have such expertise in all areas, as delivered by Australian Celebrations Training.” Pamela Schultz, Secretary/Treasurer ACMCSA (INC) January 2012
