Welcome to the British Institute of Funeral Directors. Founded in 1982, we are one of the leading providers of education and Continuing Professional Development within the funeral profession. In addition to our CPD courses which enable practitioners to become eligible for the Licence to Practice offered by the Institute, we also provide two nationally recognised courses, the Certificate in Funeral Service and the Diploma in Funeral Service. Both courses are accredited by the University of Greenwich.
Our mantra is ‘Educating the Profession’. When you become a member of the BIFD, you can give your clients peace of mind about your qualifications and dedication to delivering an exceptional standard of service that is aligned with our Code of Ethics. If you would like to find out more about our training and membership, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
The British Institute of Funeral Directors, B.I.F.D. is not a trade organisation but an Individual Membership Organisation, and as such we have no legal authority over any Funeral Directors Company regarding adherence to our Code of Ethics and our rules.
We do however, insist that our individual members adhere to this code and to our rules. Should this not be the case then the Institute will investigate any complaints against the individual member concerned.
For further information about our services and to learn more about the benefits of becoming a BIFD member, please get in touch. In addition to providing industry leading training and education, we offer a supportive environment to nurture our members.
