The latest Certificate in Funeral Arranging & Administration course opened on August 29th at another new venue – this time in the south of the region.
The Hallmark Hotel, Croydon, is hosting twenty students, from seven member-firms, who are working towards the examination on 7th November. Demand for places is such that this is the largest group to have attended a course.
In response to comments from past students and employers, the course format has been reviewed and now includes a mock examination.
Expanded course content has been accommodated by changing the timetable to include a Saturday session, in addition to the customary evening seminars.
It is hoped the new format should assist candidates with no recent experience of study and exams, which often adds to exam stress.
The students (pictured, with London President Richard van Nes), have a variety of experience of funeral service, which will enhance the learning of the whole group.
