End of Life Doula Training

Our End of Life doula training (non-accredited) is entirely online consisting of 7 modules. It is delivered entirely online and you will have 9 months to complete the course. You will be assigned to a class and supported by a dedicated educator to provide continuity in your marking. There is a great deal of video content, articles, stories and resources.

Being a Doula is an opportunity to assist others though any one of life’s many transitions. This End Of Life Doula Training will give you an opportunity to successfully support people at a deep level while you learn a little more about yourself in the process.


The College also offers additional student support and learning for those who join the ADC Student Community and graduates in the Membership program can have their bio displayed on our Doula Directory.

Our End Of Life Doula training takes you on a journey of exploration. You will be given the space to look into and examine your own thoughts and feelings around death and dying whist gaining the necessary and relevant information to assist those at the end of their life and/or their loved ones. It’s important to understand the law in this space and to gain the confidence you need to help your client/s find their voices and plan their end of life, their way.

“Each person's grief is as unique as their fingerprint. But what everyone has in common is that no matter how they grieve, they share a need for their grief to be witnessed. That doesn't mean needing someone to try to lessen it or reframe it for them. The need is for someone to be fully present to the magnitude of their loss without trying to point out the silver lining.”
― David Kessler
