This is the only recognized course for the certification of crematorium operators in the province of Ontario. This program will ensure you have the necessary training required under the FBCSA. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the cremation process, consumer protection for cremation clients, and best service practices and standards. This program is open to anyone involved with any aspect of the cremation process including counsellors, funeral directors, full and part-time operators and owners. This program is the first phase towards operator certification. Full certification will be granted upon successful completion of the self-administered exam AND verification that the participant has completed fifty (50) cremation cases (second phase), for which participants have one full year from the date of the program to complete. The OACFP recommends that anyone who has not attended a crematorium training program within the last five years should attend.

PLEASE NOTE:  This program is set to run on May 31 and June 1st.  In a virtual format.  All registrants will receive credentials to our dedicated virtual platform 48 hours prior to the start of the program.
