Equality Institute LGBT+ Wedding Institute Certificate Program - Self Guided Course

Earn the trust and the business of the loyal LGBTQ wedding market by learning from the experts at the Equality Institute. Together, we are creating a more equal world. 

We've trained 1200+ wedding and travel pros from 21 countries to be sensitive, trained and ready to passionately serve same-sex couples!

Take it from one of our graduates, Julie Buckley, Just Jules Events

"I have a lot of gay friends and assumed I knew how things worked in the gay community - but I clearly didn't! The course provides you with very useful and important information to help you be successful in the same-sex wedding business. It was engaging, the homework was a good idea and I learned things that I have been able to implement immediately. I need to market to same-sex couples in a much different way than straight couples."

Is there a test?
Yes, there is a 10 question course completion quiz that you are expected to complete with at least a 70% score.

How long is the course?
There are at least 4.5 hours worth of assorted videos + quizzes and homework. 

Can I rewatch the sessions?
Yes, you can go back through the program as many times as you need to before you complete the program.

How much does it cost?
The cost is $399. The payment is non-refundable but is transferable if you cannot attend but want to send someone else instead.

Is graduation guaranteed?
No, but if you watch the videos, participate in discussion, do your homework, and pass the quiz with at least a 70%, then there's no reason you shouldn't successfully complete the program.

Can my entire staff participate?
Absolutely, but we require each individual to register and participate separately. The certificate is per individual, not per company. This is to avoid a situation where an employee moves onto another company but the original company maintains the certificate, even though no other staff have been trained.

Can you provide the course to my entire hotel/staff and provide a company-wide certificate?
Yes, of course! Please email info {at} theequalityinstitute {dot} com to discuss.
