(2017 Schedule See Below)

2017 will be our 27th year of providing Educational Seminars for Professional Embalmers from around the World.

  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.
