Due to Covid-19 restrictions FCAA has been unable to schedule Professional Development days at present. However FCAA is offering interested Celebrants the opportunity to network together via virtual Round Table Discussions, facilitated by FCAA Vice President, Robyn Foster.
We hope you will take the opportunity to be involved in these sessions which will be held via ZOOM. Once you have registered you'll receive a confirmation email with Zoom Meeting ID and Password so you can join in.
You'll just need your mobile, iPad, Laptop or Computer and a willingness to share with your fellow Celebrants.

Stay tuned for future updates on FCAA Professional Development Days and Forum topics.
As soon as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted the committee will be planning for profession development and Forum opportunities to take place in the latter part of the year.
Guest speaker/s (experts in their field) are invited to present topics related to Funeral Celebrancy. Forum events are held in NSW, Victoria, WA, Queensland, ACT and SA are subject to demand. Topics may include subjects such as grief, presentation, embalming, poetry, difficult funerals, working with Funeral Directors, dealing with conflict, Funeral music, Memorials and self-care and wellbeing for Funeral Celebrants. Forum events are FREE for FCAA members and $35 for non-members (Your training provider may offer a free Forum attendance voucher).
Professional Development Days
Usually for a whole day these events include highly qualified, experienced, expert professional and funeral industry speakers. Each programme may consist of interactive sessions, workshops, role-play exercises, performances - all aimed to increase your knowledge and skill set for Funeral Celebrancy. But a key benefit is networking with fellow FCAA members. Professional Development days are heavily subsidised for FCAA members.
