Education and Training

The BIFD offers 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.
