Jezabels back from the brink

Australian celebrations

Now in our eleventh year, it is with pleasure that we now commence the Ongoing Professional Development (OPD) training for the 2016 year.

Classroom Guarantee - All classes that are advertised on our national timetable are guaranteed to proceed.

We are delighted this year to bring the BDM team members into local communities across the states of Victoria, NSW and Queensland. Celebrants will have the opportunity to contribute to questions that they would like answered in these sessions, and get to know the team members more personally.

During 2015 we received great feedback on our trainers and curriculum. We have listened carefully to your feedback in terms of which new topics may be of interest. The most popular request has been the business topics in the area of online marketing and social media. We look forward to meeting up with colleagues from the many years of OPD training, and also look forward to meeting our new colleagues.

In our Registered Training Company we specialise only in celebrant training, it is our sole focus and our passion.

Thank you to all who trained with us in the previous years, we are grateful for your business and loyalty. We currently have approximately 80 OPD elective topics.

New Topics for 2016 include

  • First Aid preparedness for celebrants
  • How to handle difficult clients
  • Understanding mobile marketing
  • Young at heart
  • Introduction to Twitter
  • Child friendly marriage ceremonies
  • The Covenant of Marriage (Religious celebrants)
  • Streamline your social media
  • The basics of advertising on Facebook


Our fees range for a 5 hour selection from $115 to $165. You can easily enrol and pay online, or pay via credit card, cheque or money order.

Our fees have been from the beginning of OPD training the most competitive. We believe they are very fair in terms of the quality of trainers, curriculum and resources.
