Education and Training
The BIFD offers an 'Introduction to Funeral Service' course, and two courses for funeral professionals:
- the Certificate in Funeral Service;
- the Diploma in Funeral Service;
All courses are provided by BIFD-accredited Tutors and take place nationwide.
All courses require students to have a good standard of English, and an understanding of maths and science.
All students who have enrolled with a tutor are eligible to join the BIFD as a Student Member on an annual basis and thus receive the benefits of membership and student discounts, where offered.
