Ready to become certified?

The ACPWC offers Personalized Courses and Home Study training nationally and internationally. Whether you are looking to become a professionally trained wedding consultant, corporate event planner, facility coordinator or church coordinator, this course will provide the education and tools you need to be successful.

The course fee is $1295 for the 4-day Personalized Program or the Home-Study Program.

A Certificate of Completion will be presented to students who successfully complete the course and assignments within the allotted time and who, in the opinion of the instructor, meet the personal qualifications and ideals of the ACPWC. Upon graduation you will continue your training through our Post-graduate Continuing Education Program.

The signed DVD Agreement, two (2) reference letters, and full payment must be received prior to mailing the course materials (binder and 10 DVDs). This payment is non-refundable after the course materials have been mailed.

In order to reserve your space for the next course, we must receive your completed application, personal evaluation and enrollment agreement, two reference letters (one personal and one professional), and a non-refundable deposit of $300, which is applied to the total cost of the course. Your final payment must be received no later than two weeks prior to the first day of class. All payments, except the deposit, are refundable up to two weeks prior to the start of class.

Once we receive your completed application and appropriate fees, we will send your assignments. Once class has been confirmed we will send suggested hotel and travel information.
