Preplanners: Earn Your CPC Designation This Year

Set yourself apart from the competition with the only national certification for preplanners - NFDA's exclusive Certified Preplanning Consultant (CPC) designation! Application deadlines for the first two seminars of 2012 are quickly approaching.

NFDA's CPC program is the only national certification program in the specialized field of advance funeral planning. By earning your CPC certification, you will set yourself apart from other preplanners, earn recognition for your professional achievement, increase the confidence of the families you serve and promote professional standards and ethics.

Upcoming CPC seminars and certification exams include:

  • February 22-23, Atlanta/Union City, GA
    • Hosted in conjunction with the 100 Black Women of Funeral Service's Education & Empowerment Conference (you need not attend the conference to attend the CPC seminar)
    • Application Deadline: January 30
  • April 16-18, Toronto, ON, Canada
    • Hosted by FamilySide Assurant Life of Canada (open to U.S. and Canadian preplanners)
    • Application Deadline: March 26

Upon acceptance to the program, you will receive the CPC Standards Manual and are responsible for studying the manual prior to the seminar and certification exam. For more information about the CPC program or to apply, visit or call 800-228-6332.

If you can't attend these programs, additional programs in 2012 will be held in Des Moines, IA, Charlotte, NC and Wheeling, IL; a correspondence option is also available.
