NFDA to Offer Four Cremation Certification Programs in April

Join us for one of the four NFDA Certified Crematory Operator (CCO) programs that will be conducted in April; programs will be held in Utah, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Colorado. NFDA's cremation certification program was developed for all funeral professionals – not just operators – and, with the increasing rate of cremation, it's more important than ever for you to be fully prepared to serve families that choose cremation.

The NFDA CCO program is taught by two licensed funeral directors and covers everything you need to know in order to knowledgably and ethically provide cremation services to families. Topics that are covered include:

  • Cremation ethics
  • Serving cremation families
  • Written authorizations
  • Cremation process and procedures
  • Shipping cremated remains
  • Liability and risk avoidance
  • Public and community relations
