A special message from NFDA’s Vice President, Cremation Services Mike Nicodemus:
Cremation rates across the country are on the rise and the East Coast is no exception. As this trend continues, it is more important than ever for funeral directors to learn how to protect themselves and the families they serve from the potential risks surrounding cremation.
That’s why Mike Watkins, NFDA’s vice president of operations, and I are bringing the NFDA Certified Crematory Operator (CCO) Program to you! This program offers a must-have certification for everyone offering cremation to the families they serve. The NCFDA will host this seminar on Tuesday, May 11.
More than 80 people attended this program in Baltimore, MD. Here’s what Dave Weber, president-elect of the Maryland Funeral Directors Association, had to say about it: “This program was informative, entertaining, thought provoking, and sometimes even frightening. It opened my eyes to the possibility that my firm might not be completely protected. I gained insight into the potential risk of using a third-party crematory as well as learning the proper paperwork and procedures to have in place to minimize that risk.”
Whether you currently own or operate a crematory, are thinking of opening one, or want to evaluate a third-party crematory, this training is necessary for your success. We look forward to seeing you in Raleigh on May 11!
Vice President, Cremation Services, NFDA
