Last Chance to Earn CE and Get Certified – NFDA Cremation Certification Seminar is Coming to Nevada

If you offer cremation to the families you serve, NFDA's cremation certification provides must-have training, regardless of whether you currently own or operate a crematory, are thinking of opening one, or want to evaluate a third-party crematory. Registration is open for the last Certified Crematory Operator seminar of 2015, which will take place on December 2 in Henderson, Nevada. Onsite registration will be available.
