Cremation Certification seminars are approved for up to 7 CE hours by APFSP and most state licensing boards.
The recognized standard for funeral service professionals, NFDA’s Cremation Certification Program covers cremation ethics, crematory operations and maintenance, safety, compliance and liability issues, cremation customer service, and much more.
If you offer cremation to the families you serve, whether you currently own or operate a crematory, are thinking of opening one or want to evaluate a third-party crematory, this training is necessary for your success. This course is based on Cremation Standards for Funeral Service Professionals, published by NFDA, which attendees receive upon arrival at the seminar.
Obtaining certification requires passing the online NFDA Cremation Certification Test within a designated time frame. A test link is provided to candidates whose complete attendance has been verified in writing by the onsite instructor. During registration, attendees may choose the designation they will earn upon successful completion of the program:
- CCSP - Certified Cremation Services Provider: For funeral directors and staff that offer cremation services through a use of a third-party crematory
- CCO - Certified Crematory Operator: For crematory owners and/or operators
Seminar fee includes the comprehensive manual, seminar presentation, continental breakfast and lunch, exam and scoring, CE processing and certificate.
