Your ongoing professionalism

As an authorised celebrant, you must fulfil a range of obligations including compliance with the Code of Practice and undertaking professional development activities annually. Within five years, you will also be subject to a Performance Review.

The Federal Attorney-General’s Department – Marriage Celebrants Section – issue a list which is posted to all celebrants at the end of August in each year.

The list contains the names of organisations that provide Ongoing Professional Development to celebrants, and the nature of the activity, and the celebrant must undertake at least 5 hours of O.P.D. each year.

The celebrant must choose activities that total at least 5 hours in duration, which includes one or more compulsory activities presented by the Attorney-General’s Department – Marriage Celebrant’s Section.

This Ongoing Professional Development is one way in which celebrants collaborate with colleagues to develop, maintain and improve their skills and resources.

(e) Membership and attendance at meetings of Marriage Celebrant Association

(f) Membership and receipt of periodical newsletters from Marriage Celebrant Association
