This qualification is part of the Funeral Services Training Package. It reflects the role of individuals who perform a range of specialised embalming procedures in a mortuary or funeral home mortuary. Individuals in this role work relatively autonomously and may have limited responsibility for the coordination, training and supervision of others.
