New Times For Funerals

The public’s expectations of funerals continue to change, bringing new and urgent challenges to funeral arrangers, and tremendous opportunities to those who respond. Move forwards by attending 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. 

Understand what makes a good and meaningful funeral.

Give  clear information on the many choices now available  e.g. cremation and burial options, different types of ceremony, venues, coffins, transport etc.

Enable families to be involved in the preparations and funeral arrangements to the extent that this helps them.

Make arrangements for the infrastructure of the funeral to support the ceremony.

Listen and communicate well with newly bereaved families.

Understand and explain  the necessary paperwork according to different situations.

Inform, support, advise

You will be able to inform, support and advise on all aspects of arranging a funeral. You receive a comprehensive 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. Simon Smith and Steve Nimmo are the principal facilitators.

This is what we are looking for from a funeral arranger.
