Modern Funeral Arranging

Modern Funeral Arranging

3 days

Taught by award winning funeral directors, this 3-day course covers all you need to help a family arrange and organise a memorable, meaningful and personal funeral.

Enhance your knowledge and skills for starting your own company, 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.

"The course was well-organised, informative and consistently interesting. There was a good balance of practical exercises, open discussion and theory work. Simon, Jane and Steve imparted a huge amount of information whilst encouraging individual thoughts and beliefs. The basics of arranging a funeral were covered in an imaginative and thought-provoking way so that I enjoyed the whole learning process." Nicola de la Croix

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 for the course you can keep referring back to, and a copy of our book 'We Need To Talk About The Funeral'.

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.

"I felt I was being personally cared for, looked after by someone who gave importance to what I wanted and who empathised completely with my needs and wishes. I was so grateful for that."
