Wisconsin Licensed Funeral Director’s Apprentice Course

We are excited to work with you to get started in the funeral service profession as a Wisconsin licensed funeral director’s apprentice.

Since November of 2018, the state of Wisconsin requires anyone seeking their funeral director’s apprentice license to complete a 16-hour training course.  Our program faculty have been a part of the course development process and offers the course throughout the year.

The course meets for two days, 8 hours each day.  Topics covered include all the foundational information an apprentice would need to be properly prepared to work at a funeral home.  The course fee is around $92 and includes a course manual. The manual will be handed out at the start of the course. 

Upon completion of the course exam, a certificate will be provided to the student to turn in to the state when applying for their apprentice license.

Our next courses coming up are:

  • FUNERL 500 - 201:  2/19 - 2/20 
  • FUNERL 500 - 202:  3/26 - 3/27
  • FUNERL 500 - 203:  4/23 - 4/24
