I Want to Become a Funeral Director/Embalmer


I want to become a funeral director/embalmer. Can you give me information on how to embalm, the techniques used, and some courses in college that would be good to take to get me started?

Most states require you to be a licensed funeral director to perform a funeral director's functions, and to be a licensed embalmer or mortician to perform embalming.

You can obtain these licenses at mortuary schools across the US, which you can locate by using any technical school search or guide. You can also check individual state sites for information on requirements in each state (we have links to most of them on, in the funeral planning consumer rights section).

Hope that's helpful! Thanks for using
