Colorado Funeral Directors & Embalmers

Funeral Directors and Embalmers who are certified as CMSP, CFD, CET or INT in Colorado are required to complete 6 hours of continuing education every year. Those hours may include:

  • Class A – Professional Activity
  • Class B – Academic Activity (maximum of 4 hours accepted in this category)
  • Class C – Public Education & Service (maximum of 2 hours accepted in this category)

Our courses are Class A.

In addition, at least 2 of the 6 hours must be in Colorado funeral service law updates.

Once you pass each course, you will be able to immediately download and print your completion certificate.

The Colorado Funeral Directors Association does not need to review or approve education programs that are accredited by the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice (APFSP). Credits for APFSP-approved programs will be honored by the CFSB. All of our courses below are approved by the APFSP.
