Why does OKFDA Sponsor a Yearly Celebrant Training? 

OKFDA believes that sponsoring a Celebrant Training provides a wonderful experience and benefit to our members. Firms who offer Celebrants have seen an exponential growth in families interested in having services as well as increased revenue, and satisfied, happy families and attendees.

What is it?

Celebrant training is an intensive 3-day certification, training people how to provide unique and personalized funerals for families, specializing in those families who do not wish to have a traditional or religious based funeral.

 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.

The Celebrant will meet with the family to offer guidance and consulting while planning a personalized and meaningful funeral to honor the loved one. The Celebrant will have a Family Time for sharing of stories and memories. A Celebrant has a wide library of resources for readings, music and other special ceremonies to help the family design a service that honors the life.

Celebrants will work directly with the funeral director on the arrangements and elements of the service and are dedicated to the concept of providing a tribute that reflects the lifestyle and beliefs of the individual. Your service can have any elements, music and readings that are right for you and for your family.

Who is it for?

Anyone who is interested in becoming a writer, creator and officiant at funeral services. Funeral professionals, clergy/chaplains, bereavement specialists, nurses, teachers, actors, business people all have become Certified Celebrants.
