Hello Everyone,

The Funeral Service Education Program at Jefferson State will be offering NFDA’s Cremation Certification Refresher Program (RE-CERTIFICATION ONLY) in Birmingham on Monday, February 4, 2019 in the Fitzgerald Student Center (bookstore) on the Jefferson Campus, Room 400. Registration will start at 9:30 a.m. and the course will begin at 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. CST.

(Please double check your GPS for the 2601 Carson Road, Birmingham, AL 35215 address, it may send you to the Shelby Campus)

Please note this is NOT a cremation certification course but a re-certification (refresher) course, meaning you must have already completed a Certified Cremation Operator’s Program via any of the following services: CANA, NFDA, Matthews, US Cremations or B&L Cremation Systems.

From the State Board:

*** A cremationist must complete crematory operator training approved by the board every 4 years from the date of their initial certification (not your license date), said training shall count toward continuing education. Cremationist who do not complete the re-certification within four years of their initial certification and provide the Board with documentation of completion, will not have their cremationist license renewed until the re-certification is complete.

Contact the State Board for additional questions regarding your current certification.
