CoCA thanks those celebrants who responded with feedback about difficult and challenging situations.
Examples of challenging situations are perhaps the sort of incidents that the marriage officers in the BDM Registries would not need to deal with, or the situations that funeral celebrants need to face.
If you are yet to share your unusual, complex and difficult cases, there is still time.
CoCA associations and the FCAA (Funeral Celebrants Association of Australia) along with others are continuing their work with the Skills Council to review the professional training for new marriage, general and funeral celebrants.
These are the essential principles upon which our celebrant representatives are working on to ensure the celebrant training is updated to meet the needs of celebrants and the Australian community in ten and twenty years time.
The Coalition of Celebrant Associations (CoCA) Inc is the peak body for celebrants in Australia. CoCA is an association of celebrant associations spanning the nation. One of CoCA's key roles is to represent Commonwealth marriage celebrants concerns, needs and suggestions to the Attorney-General and the Attorney-General's Department and through it Protocol with the Department to provide advice on the development, implementation and review of the Commonwealth Marriage Celebrant Program.
