As a Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrant, you're in the right place to book your Ongoing Professional Development (OPD). By annually completing your OPD, you fulfil the Attorney-General's Department's (AGD's) legal requirements as a Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrant.
 
Steps for Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrants for completing 2021 OPD:

  1. Complete the one-hour mandatory Compulsory Activity (Legal Quiz) administrated by the Attorney-General's Department. It is free of charge through the celebrant self-service portal
    Any enquiries with the use of the self-portal are handled by the AGD. ​

  2. Select and enrol in the elective activities to a total of four hours via one of our enrolment options. In total, it will finalise your 2021 five-hour OPD obligation.

The Gordon will officially lodge a completion report with the AGD's.

Student story

"I thought today's OPD went incredibly well. Congratulations to Sian who had a well planned day with plenty of opportunity for interactions -individually with a trainer, or in a small or larger group. Sian's presentation style is friendly, inclusive and informative. She knows her stuff and is respectful to others who have a great deal of experience as celebrants. It was an interesting, appropriate and informative with respect to the content. As one participant reported, it saved her a 6-hour drive!"
Bev Robinson

"Would just like to say how impressed I was with today's Celebrant OPD. Ran without any problems at all and Sian was absolutely sensational. This is now my preferred way to complete OPD, I will be back."
