GDEP's Online End of Life Consultant Training Now Has a Payment Plan Option

Gentle Readers are aware that last month Dr Annetta Mallon and GDEP launched an innovative education option for people intererested in learning about end of life work. Great news - studying just became even easier.

There has been a good deal of interest in the GDEP course and - due to popular demand as COVID-19 restrictions continue to impact communities in Australia and overseas - a payment plan option has been added to assist people who are feeling a financial pinch right now. Your course fees can now be spread out as four monthly payments rather than a single, up-front payment.

The comprehensive and inclusive End of Life Consultant training course includes all seven non-medical roles, and emphasises international best practice including cultural competency and safety, language and lexicon for end of life work, best standard professional practice, and evidence-based, secular content that encompasses pet as well as human end of life. This course is kink-friendly, diversity-welcoming, and considers a wide variety of client populations including multicultural, migrant, disability, LGBTIQA+, and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) community members.

Learn at your own pace from one of Australia's leading End of Life Consultants and educators, Dr Annetta Mallon. Annetta is the founder of Gentle Death Education and Planning, and the GDEP online training course creator.

The course features content from expert contributors (from a variety of backgrounds) who generously share their knowledge and expertise with students, helping to ensure that your learning experience is as well-rounded and complete as possible. Tier 1 contributors include Dr Tinashe Dune (national Cultural Competence and Cultural Safety expert), Ms Rebecca Lyons (Independent Funeral Director and End of Life Doula), Dr Kerrie Noonan (Death Literacy and Compassionate Communities), and Mr Ian Shearer (culturally-approved First Nation Australian Aboriginal death, body disposal, and mourning practices)..

You can enrol at and join the rapidly-growing ranks of people helping their families and communities to do death better. The first core component, Tier 1, is designed for all levels of students, from beginners to seasoned experts, and you will have regular Q&A sessions with Annetta once you are enrolled. This means that you can study online at times that suit your schedule, while still having the benefits of real-time interactions with your teacher via video conference call - it is the best of both study worlds.

If you have questions please email and we will get back to you shortly.
