OPD Webinars

Welcome to Life Skills Training's exciting new OPD Webinar option! Almost as good as face to face training, a webinar involves you logging in to Zoom software from the comfort of your own home, and being trained by one of our fantastic trainers from the comfort of their home! You will have the opportunity to ask questions, just like you do at face to face OPD, and you don't need to submit any assessment tasks. Turn up for the appropriate hours, answer some questions throughout the session, and your OPD obligation will be ticked off.

Sessions will run 9am-3pm to allow for five hours' training with two breaks between sessions (the group will vote on the length of the breaks); believe me, staring at a computer screen for five hours in a row is no fun for everyone, so we're spacing things out a bit.

You'll need a computer (it's better than a phone or tablet) with a speaker so you can hear the trainer, and an internet connection; you do NOT need a video camera if you don't have one. A microphone (even the one built in to your computer) may be useful not not essential if you don't have one.

All webinar registrations come with a $20 voucher to be used in the Celebrant Institute shop (voucher code sent after the event).

Webinar session start times are at Australian Eastern Standard Time until 4 October, when they change to Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time. Start times for other timezones are listed in the individual event details.

Zoom login details will be sent in the days before the session, and trainers will be online 30 minutes before the start time to help anyone who's having trouble connecting.

We have chosen topics that can be delivered in this slightly different format, and we will be limiting the sessions to a maximum of 15 participants each

We're thrilled to be a market leader in this space, and looking forward to helping celebrants learn new skills in this challenging time!

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to call Sarah on 0434 884 834 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Looking forward to seeing you on your computer screen!

A big thank you to Sarah Aird for being so flexible and accommodating with Webinar OPD during the COVID-19 situation. Sarah is always so well prepared and provides all her students with resources above and beyond what is expected. I love doing OPD with her as I know I am getting the most up to date information and knowledge. Abbie Frew, Celebrant
