Using interpreters and translators (3 hours)

This topic covers reviewing Section 112 of the Act, and 4.1.2 and 5.9 of The Guidelines related to the use of Interpreters and the various references to the required translation of documents.

We will discuss the difference between the two services and where they can be found so that celebrants know how to refer their couples to find these types of services. It will enable the celebrant to determine when they might use the services of either a translator or interpreter. Examples will be given of when that might be necessary. Then we will discuss how and when that process would take place: Referring the couple to find the service, who completes the forms, and often explaining to the translator how to complete the form/s and when the Celebrant takes possession of the forms, and what happens to the form after the wedding.

Working with people with disability – inclusion and etiquette (2 hours)

This course provides celebrants with both the information and resources for better communication for people with disability.18.3% (or approximately 3.96 million) people in Australia have a disability and communication is an important right for all Australians. Sometimes people with disabilities have the need for supports due to complex communication needs and celebrants require the basic knowledge to effectively and respectfully communicate with clients with a disability.
