Life Celebration Introduces Unique E-Learning Platform

Animated Courses Create a Truly One-Of-A-Kind Learning Curriculum

NORTH WALES, PA – Life Celebration, Inc., a growing community of funeral homes that embraces a systematic approach to creating memorable and meaningful funeral experiences for families, has launched a new training platform for funeral home members.  The learning program, which features highly engaging animation, has been unveiled only after extensive research and testing by the Life Celebration team.


“The E-Learning platform is an individualized, self-paced online educational experience, where the ‘student’ is responsible for their own enrichment,” stated Gerry Givnish, president of Life Celebration.  “The E-Learning series we created is unlike anything that is currently available in the funeral profession.  We have designed and produced these courses entirely using animation.”


Thus far, two courses have been created using the GoAnimate technology.  The first, entitled “The Resource Center”, functions as a “go to” information resource and refresher for the core concepts, framework and teachings espoused by Life Celebration.  The second course, entitled “The Touchpoints”, offers a deeper dive into the Life Celebration curriculum delivered through a question and answer format hosted by the animated architects of Life Celebration – Jim Cummings and Gerry Givnish.

“This E-Learning process provides our community members with something not seen in the funeral profession, “said Jim Cummings, Vice President and Chief Experience Officer at Life Celebration.  “Using this new tool will provide the discipline and consistency necessary for our community funeral homes and their staffs to have measurable success with the families they serve.”


In addition to this exclusive animated training platform, membership in Life Celebration community includes access to the one-of–a-kind memorialization products created in the custom design and print production center and the proprietary training curriculum licensed from the authors of The Experience Economy, B. Joseph Pine and James H. Gilmore.
