- Mass Fatalities and Funeral Service 2About the Course:Funeral directors and embalmers often play an active role in the aftermath of mass fatality incidents (MFIs). This course will define MFIs and their classification levels, as well as the preparation, consideration, coordination, and communication required to best serve the victims and families affected.
- Opioids: Contributing to Both Health and Death 2About the Course:Opioids are pain relievers administered through prescriptions. When someone takes too many opioids or reaches a tolerance threshold, an overdose occurs. With the increase of opioid deaths in the United States, it is imperative that the death-care industry recognizes and respects the hidden dangers. The funeral arrangements, visitation, and funeral can be complicated because of the circumstances surrounding the death. Opioids can affect the vessels and tissues of the body and cause embalming issues for embalmers. Funeral directors and embalmers need to be aware of safety procedures before embalming and to incorporate strict personal protective equipment. There are different embalming techniques for embalming an individual who was on opioids at the time of death as well as those who have overdosed on opioids. This course will also describe strategies to help combat overdoses in the funeral home.
- Training New Embalmers 2About the Course:It is the responsibility and duty of funeral home owners, managers, and experienced professionals to properly train and equip those new to the industry in the most complete way possible. Additionally, it is the responsibility of these same professionals to properly equip and prepare those who are new to a firm. This proper training and preparation will provide immeasurable success to the new embalmer, the existing staff and management, and the families that will be served.
