Become a certified Naming Celebrant


Naming Celebrant Certification

We’re passionate about your success

Upon completion of the AMC Wedding Celebrancy Course, you can decide to train as a Naming Celebrant and add this to your skillset and offering.

Naming ceremonies are a beautiful way for families to celebrate the birth of a child, or a child entering the family such as adoption, in contrast to a religious based ceremony.

As with the certificate in Wedding Celebrancy course, the Naming Celebrancy Course is an online training programme that will teach you not only how to write, plan and officiate beautiful ceremonies, but also the skills required to have a successful career as a wedding and naming celebrant.
