Program Information

School:Saskatchewan Polytechnic
Degree:Certificate; Distance
Field of Study:Funeral Direction/Service
Description:Funeral Service is a certificate program. The program is delivered in cooperation with the Funeral and Cremation Services Council of Saskatchewan. You will study a core component of courses followed by a specialty of embalming or funeral directing, or both. If you are a compassionate person interested in helping people, this program can help you develop the skills you need to support individuals who are coping with death and provide essential services involved in the care of final arrangements for a loved one.

The program is delivered by home study and work experience/practicum placements. Home study allows you to remain in your home community for your course work. Work experience/practicum placements will take place at rural and urban centres. Your placement may be in a location outside of your home community; therefore, you may incur extra expenses.
