Funeral Director Training and Licensing

by MSO

Early funeral directors were often builders or furniture makers. They would be called to build a coffin and many of the other details would often fall on their shoulders too.

Becoming a funeral director requires a college diploma (the program itself lasts anywhere between one to two years) and a placement before becoming eligible to apply for a license as a funeral director.

Funeral director jobs are not hard to find – people will always die, which means they will always have work to do. Classes are targeted towards funerals and death but deal with a wide variety of subjects, from English to Biology and from Psychology to Business.

Obtaining a license requires you to apprentice for a year, where you have to help with at least 50 funerals. Members of the board will check on you every three months.
