ACADEMY OF PROFESSIONAL FUNERAL SERVICE PRACTICE

CERTIFICATION INFORMATION

Certification through the Academy

The CERTIFIED FUNERAL SERVICE PRACTITIONER (CFSP) designation is funeral service's national individual recognition in the United States and Canada.  The goals of the Academy are:

  • To recognize those practitioners who have voluntarily entered into a program of personal and professional growth,
  • To raise and improve the standards of funeral service, and
  • To encourage practitioners to make continuing education a life-long process in their own self-interest, the interest of families they serve, and the community in which they serve.

 

Certification Process

Funeral Professionals can earn credits toward certification in four categories:  Academic, Professional Service, Career Review and Public Education and Service.  Retroactive credits can also be earned for activities performed from the date of licensure to the date of Academy membership after completing your Career Review.
