Both Cremation Arranger and Crematory Operations Certifications to be Offered

The Cremation Association of North America (CANA) and the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) announced a new partnership to present cremation education at a variety of locations around the country. Together, ICCFA and CANA will offer two types of cremation training: the one-day ICCFA Cremation Arranger Certification Program and the one-day CANA Crematory Operations Certification Program™ (CANA COCP™).

“Blending the art and the science of cremation, this combination of courses will certainly prove to be essential continuing education for the cremation industry,” said Barbara Kemmis, Executive Director of CANA. “ICCFA’s Cremation Arranger Certification Program will help deliver powerful information on the marketing, value and psychological dynamics of the cremation arrangement process. CANA’s COCP is taught by industry experts with the technical, scientific, and legal knowledge to cover best policies, practices, and procedures that are essential to insuring the safety of employees and protecting business integrity.”

“Partnering with CANA allows members of both organizations to become well-rounded in the biggest emerging sector of our profession,” said Poul Lemasters, Esq., ICCFA cremation programs coordinator. “This training is crucial to business growth and setting yourself apart from your competitors as a cremation specialist.”

The dates for the 2014 programs will be announced in the next month. More information and registration will be available on www.cremationassociation.org and www.iccfa.com.

With the national cremation rate fast approaching 50%, personnel from every funeral home and crematory—owners, managers, funeral directors, and even support staff—can benefit from attending these valuable sessions.
