Funeral Arranging for the Embalmer - In the Age of Cremation
Recognized by the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice for
Arizona Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers (PENDING)
Registration Fee $495 USD for 2 day event includes take home material.
With cremation at nearly 90% in some markets in Canada and the United States, and embalming decreasing, things need to change. This seminar will take a look at the funeral profession through the eyes of an Embalmer and a Cremation Expert. The idea that cremation families do not want to embalm or spend money is a complete misconception. "Traditional" funeral service, embalming and cremation can go hand in hand and it is our job as funeral professionals to know how to grow and change to meet the ever changing needs of our families.
