Practicing to save a life

Practicing to save a life

Anyone can be a “consultant,” and there’s a plethora of Wedding consultant “certification” programs out there, so I’d like to explain what makes Association of Bridal Consultants members differ.
First, you must be an Association member to register for ABC’s Professional Development Program. Why? Because any educational program offers just the foundation to becoming a professional. The ABC program doesn’t “certify.” Truth is, “certification” is often misused as no state requires certification to practice our skills. ABC members work to advance from Novice to Consultant and then earning the advanced designations of Professional Bridal Consultant (PBC), Accredited Bridal Consultant (ABC) and ultimately Master Bridal Consultant (MBC), with increasing requirements at each level. Additionally, ABC members and ABC vendors all are required to complete 6 hours of continuing education to maintain their membership. Here are my colleagues, ABC-Florida consultants becoming CPR certified at our recent state meeting in Fort Lauderdale. Who do you want as your wedding professional?
