Lead the Way in Celebrating Life’s Milestones

Since 2001, the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, based in Montclair, New Jersey, has been certifying individuals to become life-cycle celebrants, skilled in officiating at such transition ceremonies. The foundation’s next live, online, seven-month learning program starts January 25, 2014. The small-group learning program covers how to lead ceremonies for children, couples, families, funerals and organizations, facilitated by trained celebrant instructors.

This fulfilling work of ritual and celebration flexes as part- or full-time work, as an added vocational skill or new career, recently reported by CNN and Money magazine as a top 10 profession for people changing careers.

Participants learn how to create personalized ceremonial events commemorating special moments in life and career achievement for people of all beliefs and value systems that also reflect a client’s philosophy of life and personality. Lessons include assigned readings, plus reviewing sample ceremonies, contracts and client interview questions. Celebrants become part of an alumni support network.
