The Diploma of Wedding Planning
course has been designed by the Wedding Planning Association of Australia (WPAA)
to equip wedding planners in their future career as a wedding planner. It is a very practical course involving research that will inspire people to develop their own Wedding Planning business, as well as working in the industry. Many professional organisations have put their employees through our courses as the diploma course is a stepping stone to school leavers and for people wanting to get into the industry, as well as for people who are currently running a wedding planner
business who desire a formal qualification.
An online tutor is on hand to assist all students through the research process, ensuring success in the acquisition of gaining valuable knowledge about the wedding industry.
The recommended duration is twelve months for people who are working fulltime.
