These techniques have proven helpful and valuable skills to the professional embalmer.
(Enrollment is limited to 12 embalmers)


Seminar # 5D (5-days Hands-On): Title: Advanced Post Mortem Reconstructive Surgery Seminar
This seminar has gained the attention of Embalmers from around the world. Embalmers like this format because it's "Hands-On" and they can actually practice the application of highly specialized techniques on a cadaver. While the seminar imparts a large volume of information its main focus is on the most severe cases of edema, massive destructive and crushing head injury or severe tissue and bone destructive injury caused by high velocity gun shot wounds.  Many hours are spent in the Embalming Lab practicing techniques.  It is the right seminar for the embalmer who wants to increase his or her skill level in the area of Post Mortem Reconstructive Surgery. If you desire to learn additional techniques that can be used to convert the closed casket case into an open casket case this is the right seminar for you.  Its history boasts of embalmers from various foreign countries and across the United States. It further must boast of the feed back FNA has received from its graduates in which they speak of open caskets now that before the seminar would have been closed. This seminar is the most Prestigious seminar of its kind in the world. You can enroll well ahead to ensure space availability.  (Enrollment is limited to 12 embalmers)
