Taught by award winning funeral directors, this 3-day course covers all you need to help a family arrange and organise a memorable and personal funeral. Enhance your knowledge and skills for career development, or to impress when applying for work. The funeral arranging course is open to those working in and those wanting to work in the funeral sector, and to those who want to help with funerals within their community.
This is the kind of feedback we receive as funeral arrangers:
“I felt that I was being personally cared for, looked after by a friend who gave importance to what I wanted and who empathised completely with my needs and wishes. I was so grateful for that.” Jules Davis-King
The public’s expectations of funerals continue to change, bringing new and urgent challenges to funeral arrangers, and tremendous opportunities to those who respond. Your first response can be to attend this thorough, modern and ground breaking training.
With an emphasis on working alongside and listening to a family to create a unique funeral according to their lifestyle, values and beliefs, this course covers all aspects of the funeral arranging process. You learn:
- to give information on the many choices now available clearly e.g. cremation and burial options, different types of ceremony, venues, coffins, transport etc
- to enable families to be involved in the preparations and funeral arrangements to the extent that this helps them,
- to make arrangements that support the ceremony,
- to listen and communicate well with newly bereaved families
- to understand and process the paperwork and deal with many different situations.
You will be able to inform, support and advise on all aspects of arranging a funeral. You receive a 100-page manual, something you can keep referring back to.
You have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the subject and practice the skills and resources necessary to be an excellent funeral arranger or adviser. Green Fuse founders Jane Morrell and Simon Smith, who are leading contemporary funeral directors and celebrants, and Steve Nimmo, are the principal facilitators.
This ground-breaking and practical funeral training programme is for you if you want to:
- attain best practice in modern funeral service;
- respond effectively to changing trends and challenges in funeral work;
- keep your company at the leading edge of customer service and trends;
- find work in the funeral sector;
- set up your own funeral company.
