The International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association has designed certification programs to recognize those persons who have attained the highest level of achievement within the funeral service and memorialization industry. You must be a member in good standing to apply for, and to retain, your certification. All awardees beginning in 2010 and forward must submit for renewal of their certification every five (5) years.
The ICCFA Certification Subcommittee meets twice a year, at the ICCFA Annual Convention and Fall Management Conference, to consider applications. The PLPA Education Committee follows a similar schedule.
If you do not have the number of credits required for certification, the application can serve as a guide to help you accrue enough credits for certification.
