Program Overview

Humber’s Funeral Pre-Planner certificate program prepares you to work with people who wish to plan their funeral in advance. Our program is the only Funeral Pre-Planner certificate in Ontario recognized by the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO). The curriculum has been developed according to the BAO’s professional competencies for this personal license.

In this program, you will learn all aspects of the pre-need side of the funeral service industry, everything from gaining skills working with families to learning about financial investment options.

Note: Due to provincial licensing requirements, this program is available only to domestic students.

This certificate of achievement is fully online and consists of two courses: Jurisprudence for Funeral Pre-Planners and Ethical Approach to Funeral Pre-Planning.

Post-Admission Requirements

Most employers expect their staff to possess a valid Class G driver’s license.  Additionally, The Bereavement Authority of Ontario will require all students to provide a police record check at the time of licensing.
