One year ago today Sarah Aird took over the reins of Life Skills Training, and this year we relaunched as the Celebrant Institute RTO with the contract to provide ongoing professional development for Australian civil celebrants, alongside the Certificate IV in Celebrancy, the cornerstone qualification required to become a celebrant.

For the past four years Josh and Sarah have been supporting the celebrant industry with their podcast, the Celebrant Talk Show, and their paid membership program at the Celebrant Institute, so with those four offerings continuing to grow in 2021 we wanted to celebrate the first anniversary of Sarah taking over Life Skills Training and beginning it’s move to becoming the Celebrant Institute RTO.
