Committed to life-long learning
and excellence in funeral service

Why should I work with a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner?

Planning and performing a funeral service requires diverse professional talents. Your ideal funeral director will serve you with compassion, creativity and integrity. The Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice instituted the voluntary Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP) program in 1976 to distinguish those who offer more than what is expected of them. The CFSP designation is the highest professional designation you can achieve in funeral service. When you see the CFSP credential next to a name, you know right away that you are working with a highly self-motivated person with a driven desire to learn, grow and achieve.

To earn the distinction, a funeral professional must meet certification requirements related to funeral service in four well-rounded categories: Academic, Professional, Public Education and Service, and Career Review. Read more about the certification process.
