  IMPORTANT NOTE:

FNA does not guarantee that these courses are approved for CEU credits in every state.  Often states will change the protocol for applications and approval.  We do our best to keep up with the changes in the application processes.  However, FNA recommends that you check the status of continuing education approval and the exact hours of approval directly with your respective State. FNA applies for approval in many States but not all States.  FNA does not apply in States that require a "hefty" fee for approval. Every year FNA applies for approval with the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice (APFSP) and often this approval will suffice in many States. If you have questions please call FNA.

Due to Mr. Fountain's health the September 2017 series of seminars were the last HANDS-ON seminars with a large number of cadavers and students. In 2018 he will be able to facilitate a smaller sized class of say one-on-one or perhaps 2-4 students for some hands-on seminars.  See below for various 2018 opportunities. Additionally he will continue consulting, speaking nationally and internationally and performing in-house training at your location.  

For future opportunities or to arrange a program taught by Mr. Fountain please contact him direct. at 417-833-5130.
