Our Platinum Double Diploma Celebrant Training course

We are proud to bring you our immersive NOCN accredited Professional Celebrant Training experience from a truly spectacular location in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This course benefits from our unique 5 Day residential course and the NOCN Level 3 Platinum Double Diploma in Couples & Namings and Funerals which is completed in the 18 months following your residential.

The Residential Training:

The first part of your training journey will be our intensive 5 Day residential at High Trenhouse in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. This week of training spans Monday - Friday and provides you with an opportunity to step away from the busyness of the world and immerse yourself in a special learning experience.

Our trainers bring you a wealth of experience from the corporate world, education and their own successful celebrancy businesses. They will teach, train, equip and encourage you to build your own celebrant business, whilst providing space in glorious surroundings for you to dream and be inspired to make those dreams a reality.

This residential also serves as a retreat - celebrancy is about human experience, and our training is designed to make space for your own experiences and emotions, individually and as a cohort, during the residential.

 All meals, refreshments and accommodation are included - and we offer a FREE extra nights Dinner, Bed & Breakfast before your course commences, so you have time to recover from traveling.

By the end of this week you will have a solid and confident foundation to create and deliver beautiful ceremonies and to continue growing your celebrancy business. You will also have begun work towards your chosen NOCN qualification and go away from the week with new relationships with your cohort and the support of our training team.

The Coursework:

Once you have completed your residential week with us, you can begin your coursework and you’ll be assigned a personal tutor. You will have 18 months after your residential in which to complete this work.

The Level 3 Platinum Double Diploma in Couples & Naming and Funerals coursework is comprised of 20 units of work in 10 manageable Projects. Most are written Units but you will be required to give a live eulogy during your training week, which you will receive feedback for. There will also be a number of professional discussions with your personal tutor while undertaking the coursework. Your personal tutor will inform you regarding these discussions.

It’s important to note that you are completely able to begin working as a celebrant BEFORE completing your NOCN Platinum Double Diploma. Most of our trainees return home and start promoting themselves immediately whilst doing their coursework.

You can find out further details about how to begin your coursework AFTER your residential here.

Some of our recent trainees share their experiences...

Spent a week at this amazing venue learning the art of being a Professional Celebrant.  The course is fabulous, interesting, practical and very engaging.  The trainers are practicing celebrants and are so knowledgeable and extremely helpful, kind and supportive.  The venue has the wow factor!  Nestled in the countryside, you feel a million miles from anywhere and you feel instantly relaxed.  The scenery is breath-taking, and the hospitality is fabulous.


This extraordinarily useful yet beautiful experience exceeded my expectations in every way.  Stuart, Rebecca and Maxine were such inspirational teachers and so generous with their time and expertise that the time went too quickly. We had a brilliant group and all were hugely supportive and encouraging of each other. It's a fabulous retreat too, in a stunning setting, so you get a holiday from the real world at the same time.  Cannot recommend highly enough if you are at all interested in the celebrant path.


I can't praise ICPC highly enough. Their training is intense but exceptional. They have ethics, love and professionalism at the centre of everything they do. They are raising the bar in terms of professionalism in the celebrancy industry, and all their training and work reflects that. I am so thankful that I decided to undertake my training with them and I feel prepared to step into my new career thoroughly prepared.
