Welcome to Assenttecs 2017 opd program

It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce our Ongoing Professional Development (OPD) program for 2017.

We had a great year in 2016 and offer thanks to all those celebrants who completed OPD with us. As our past attendees are aware, we collect feedback from every participant that attends a course with us.

 This year we have a very varied offering of courses designed in response to the wonderful feedback from celebrants and celebrant associations. Our OPD selection is suitable for ALL celebrants, whether new, experienced or religious.

Once again you can expect to receive a comprehensive workbook for each OPD course you complete with AssentTECS.  We will continue to offer training to small groups as our focus continues to be on quality, not quantity.  DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED, register EARLY in 2017 to avoid missing your preferred class.  Also, we will continue with the tradition of issuing a colour Certificate of Completion to all celebrants that complete their OPD with us, both Face to Face and Distance Education.

I thank you for your ongoing support of the AssentTECS OPD programs.  Many celebrants have been with us since 2003 when we first commenced delivery of OPD. Our wonderful experienced team of trainers look forward to meeting up with colleagues from past years, and also look forward to meeting many new celebrants.

We're pleased to provide an overview of our new topics for 2017.  There are some great new choices including visits to venues, sessions by the NSW BDM and a couple of 'old favourites' which have been requested again.  All AssentTECS topics have been designed specifically to enhance your professional practice. (Click here)
