ICCFA creates real-world, comprehensive training modules in conjunction with industry leaders. Its crematory operator program is written and presented in concert with representatives from actual crematory manufacturing companies, and its cremation arranger program is presented by funeral directors whose experience is rooted in performing numerous cremation services each year. ICCFA’s programs have also been recognized as the highest standard of cremation training and are specifically mentioned in several state laws as the type of program required for state licensure.

“We are honored to provide ICCFA’s crematory operator certification to Stewart, utilizing the professional services of Crematory Manufacturing and Service Inc. and Lemasters Consulting” said ICCFA director of cremation services Julie A. Burn, CCE, CSE. “Stewart’s proactive position on operator safety, the environment and liability is consistent with their leadership in the market.”
