Event and wedding course book

What are the educational requirements for professional event & wedding planners?

Starting a career in the event and wedding planning industry is much easier than you might think! Although there are degree programs available in both event and wedding planning, you actually don’t need to have a college or university degree to become an event planner.

With professional training from an online certification course, you’ll have all of the skills, knowledge, and tools you need to provide clients with flawless event plans and designs.

There are similar educational requirements for Floral Designers. While there are some professional associations you can pay to join as a professional floral designer, no certification or affiliation is required to start a floral business or work as a professional floral designer.

Marie Luciano

“I got so much out of the course and it was worth every penny. Not only did it teach me how to start my business but it also gives you a lot of hands-on experience. Not to mention a lot of behind the scenes advice on your business and important forms to get your brand started. Since graduating and receiving my certificate, I started my event planning business and the most exciting part [is] I’m booking weddings and other events.”

—Marie Luciano, Event & Wedding Planning graduate
