OPD Distance - 2017 Compulsory - Checklist and Offences (2 hours)

Revised version of 2017 compulsory topic (changed to reflect the Marriage Regulations 2017 and revised Guidelines on the Marriage Act 1961 for authorised celebrants-July 2018).

This activity is listed in the Marriage (Celebrant Professional Development) Statement 2020.


This OPD activity covers:

  1. Checklist for Solemnisation of Marriages, and
  2. Offences under the Marriage Act 1961.

The topics were developed in response to common enquiries received by the Attorney‑General’s Department (AGD) from celebrants, as well as feedback from Registries of Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDMs), training providers and celebrant associations. The activities are designed to complement the needs of both experienced and inexperienced celebrants and to help all celebrants understand what they can do to help ensure that their marriage ceremonies are conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Marriage Act 1961
