How to Apply

We welcome applications and have different forms depending on whether you are completely new to celebrant work (as are the majority of applicants who successfully train with us), are already a celebrant in our network, are a former registrar, or a celebrant who trained with another training provider. Please complete the application form that is relevant to you, listed on the ‘Become a humanist celebrant‘ page.

Please submit your application as far in advance as possible, as the application process is thorough and can take a number of months in some instances. We endeavour to allocate trainees to their first choice of course dates/location, but this cannot be guaranteed.

If suitable dates are not available to fit your schedule, we welcome applications with a view to being added to our course waiting list for when additional courses are added to the calendar.

Where venues have not been specified, they will be decided nearer the starting date.

For fees please email ceremonies-recruitment@humanists.uk.

Quality Assurance

Humanist Ceremonies™ sets the highest standards for our accredited celebrants.

Deferrals & Withdrawals

Please ensure that you are available for all stages of the course you select. Once a ceremonies training course has started a trainee may ask for a deferral to a later course only in unforeseeable and exceptional circumstances.

Trainees have the right to withdraw from courses at any time. If they do withdraw but wish to continue the training at a later date, they will be expected to start at the beginning of the training and they will need to pay the full fee. The non-refundable deposit from the original training will be kept.
