 What is a Certified Funeral Celebrant?

A Certified Funeral Celebrant is a person who has been trained and certified to meet the needs of families during their time of loss. A Funeral Celebrant serves by providing a funeral service, memorial service or tribute that is personalized and individualized to reflect the personality and life-style of the deceased after consultation with the family and loved ones and coordination with the funeral home.

Celebrant training is a 3-day intensive training that offers you the skills you need to provide unique and personalized funerals for families, specializing in those families who do not wish to have a traditional or religious based funeral.

IFDA along with InSIght are providing the training. Glenda Stansbury from InSight will be the instructor.

Anyone who is interested can participate. If you are looking to become a writer, creator or officiant at funeral services, this specialized seminar is for you. Funeral professionals, clergy/chaplains, bereavement specialists, nurses, teachers, actors, business people all have become Certified Celebrants.
