Continuing education

Continuing education is an important consideration for every funeral director and embalmer. As a licensed funeral director or embalmer in BC, you are required to complete six hours of continuing education credits for each licence type, every two years from your initial licensing date. Credits are granted for courses that have received pre-approval from our office.

Download our current approved course list.
Each course can only be applied once to a licence to meet your CEU requirements.  Repeating a course will not count towards your CEU requirements.   


To submit your CEU, please email including:
     – your name
     – license number
     – course number for each of the course taken
     – course date  for each of the course taken
     – certificate of completion (which includes course name & date the course was completed)
For courses that are applicable and pre-approved for both Funeral Directors & Embalmers, please specify which licence type you would like to apply the credits to.
