IMPORTANCE OF CERTIFICATION

The certification fulfills NFDA’s Pursuit of Excellence criteria by helping funeral professionals to develop and execute a program or service that has a positive impact on those served. Those who earn the CAS credential are designated as funeral service professionals dedicated to investing in family and community care. It establishes credibility and expertise in the field of bereavement skills with delivery of effective, useful and quality outreach.

From a funeral director standpoint, this course really gets in depth and gives you the skills and the know-how to deal with the families you want to help, not to mention the library full of extra resources they provide. I would give this course an A+ and recommend every funeral director take this course, if not make it a mandatory learning.”

“You can’t go wrong with this class.”

“Every director should take this course.”

“This is a course and curriculum that others in this industry should model after.”

“This is not a class on why it’s good to have an aftercare program, but one that actually gives you the tools and support to implement a solid aftercare program that will help the families you serve. I feel equipped and empowered to move forward into aftercare.

This is an amazing class. The information and tools provided are more than expected. The best part is the support is there long after completion.
