I enrolled to not only become a qualified wedding and event planner, but also to learn more about the industry and ultimately find employment in a job I would love.

FAQS

Who is the Advanced Certificate in Wedding & Event Planning suitable for?

This course is ideal for anyone with a love of both Weddings and Events and of course, planning and organisation. You may also consider this course if you would like to launch a business offering both Wedding and Event Planning services. Like our Event Planning courses it is the ideal course for anyone who has to plan events as part of another role; for example in Marketing or Public Relations or as a Personal/Executive Assistant. If you work or Volunteer with a Charity or Not-for-profit Organisation which hosts events, you will also find this course very valuable.

What is the difference between Weddings and Events?

At the Academy when we say Events, we are referring to events that would be hosted by a Business/Corporate client, Government Department/Official or Charity/Not-for-profit organisation. Examples of these types of Events are; Meetings, Conferences, Product Launches, Fashion Shows, Festivals, Gala Events, Charity and Fund-raising events.Our Wedding units are focused on teaching you about Planning Weddings and working with couples, however what you learn here can also be applied to other types of Celebration Planning, such as; Birthdays, Engagement Parties, Proposal Planning, Christenings etc.

Will this course help me to get a job?

All of our courses prepare you for employment as they teach you ‘how to do the job’. Employment opportunities can be found at Wedding and Event Venues, with established Wedding and Event Planners and within businesses and organisations that plan events.

Will this course help me to launch a business?

Yes. This course includes our business units which will guide you through the process of launching a business. You will have the opportunity to design your services and pricing and write a business and marketing plan. We also look at social media, contracts and insurance and teach you how to sell to your future customers. Our business training is detailed and very practical and many of our students have launched their businesses immediately after completing the course.

What Courses can I use this course as credit towards?

This course can be used as credit towards our Advanced Certificate in Special Event Planning & Design. The difference between the two courses is that the Advanced course also includes Wedding and Event Design units.

I am only interested in Weddings and other social celebrations like Birthday Parties. Is this the right course for me?

No. If you don’t want to learn more about events like meetings, conferences, product launches etc., you should consider the Advanced Certificate in Wedding Planning Stying and Design instead.
