Read more below:
The Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants (“ACPWC”) has been training students for 19 years to become Wedding Consultants or Church /Facility Coordinators.
Whether you are just getting started in the wedding industry or wish to enhance your skills and experience, we invite you to learn about our course and our Association. Professional training is important in any industry. We pride ourselves on our Certification Course, as well as our post-graduate, continuing education. The ACPWC Certification Course is a process that helps you develop your skills and business relationships, simultaneously.
Because of the numerous requests by General Managers, Catering Managers, Food and Beverage Managers, Wedding Facility Coordinators and owners of wedding facilities in the Northern California area, we have implemented a course with special emphasis on Facility Coordinators.
The course will take place from Monday, October 5th, through Friday, October 9th, 2009, 9 AM to 5 PM, at the newly-renovated Crowne Plaza in downtown San Jose. The week will be highlighted with round table discussions, directed by Wedding Facility Coordinators, with subjects pertinent to the industry, such as:
· how to work in concert with outside wedding consultants;
· understanding the role of outside wedding consultants;
· how to select reputable wedding/event professionals;
· how to build a cohesive team of wedding/event professionals;
· pros and cons of various software;
· sharing of facility-required worksheets vs. consultants’ timelines
· how to market your facility and yourself.
Discussions/presentations will also include those requested by the students themselves.
The course will describe the responsibilities of each player and how they can work together to achieve the best possible results. It is also recommended for other members of your staff who are on site during weddings. They will be able to better market your facility, recommend one another, and work together as a team.
Each facility will have the opportunity to showcase their venue on Friday, October 9th, at our Speakers’ Day. This is a day of continuing education for our new graduates, as well as our seasoned wedding consultants. The attendance is usually comprised of between 50-60 ACPWC Wedding Consultants, students and wedding professionals. Everyone enjoys this opportunity to gather information and network.
