What can I say!? Thank you so much Jane and Simon. You have done a great job. My first funeral as a celebrant, and even the crematorium phoned to say thanks and what a good job it was, professional to the tiniest detail. That's a tribute to you and the thoroughness of your training. Most important was the family. They had a funeral that they felt really honoured their son and his life. To have helped in a small way to deal with this horrendous tragedy was a privilege. This is absolutely the most amazing, profound and meaningful job I have ever done."

We believe that a thorough and professional training is needed in order to fulfil this important and multifaceted role. This fully accredited Diploma will give you six months or more to build your confidence, knowledge and skills and to get to grips with what it is like to work with newly bereaved people and manage your own feelings. It will challenge you and give you a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure. This is not something you can learn in a weekend. We don't think that is fair on the families who rely on celebrants to help them create wonderful funeral ceremonies.
It is a rare gift to deliver a beautiful and personal funeral ceremony which leaves families and friends with good memories and something to cherish. Becoming a Funeral Celebrant is a fascinating, fulfilling and challenging role / career.
The Green Fuse Funeral Celebrant's Diploma is for you if you are inspired to honour the individual who has died and to recognise the real person and the value of the life that has ended. A good funeral reflects the beauty of life and gives hope to the bereaved.
The Diploma training is designed to help you to find your own best way to be an excellent funeral celebrant, in your own style.
Jane's, Simon's and Basira's deep experience and dedication to this work is shown in the enormous care that goes into helping the celebrants with every facet of the role.
Working in small groups of 8 enables students to engage fully with their own experiences and feelings around death and dying. This atmosphere of trust and empathic attention encourages the Green Fuse Celebrant to be deeply kind and attentive to the families with whom they work.
We market Green Fuse trained independent funeral celebrants direct to funeral directors and the public, so although you'll be self-employed, you won't be doing it alone. No matter how long since you completed the training, Jane and Simon are available for support and advice. You also become a member of an intranet group of all the celebrants, which is active on an almost daily basis, to share learnings, ask questions and feel a part of a vibrant group committed to doing their best for families.
Once you have completed the course you become a part of the Green Fuse Funeral Celebrants' Guild, renowned for our high standards and assurance of quality to funeral directors and the public.
Your Course fees cover everything you will need in your first year as a celebrant, including:
All this training and support is only £1,650.00, and we offer a range of payment options to help spread the cost. The most important thing to us is that you embark on your journey and move forward towards your goal.
