  • Mass Fatalities and Funeral Service - 2HRS
    Funeral directors and embalmers often play an active role in the aftermath of mass fatality incidents (MFIs). This course will define MFIs and their classification levels, as well as the preparation, consideration, coordination, and communication required to best serve the victims and families affected. 
  • Opioids: Contributing to Both Health and Death - 2HRS
    Opioids are pain relievers administered through prescriptions. When someone takes too many opioids or reaches a tolerance threshold, an overdose occurs. With the increase of opioid deaths in the United States, it is imperative that the death-care industry recognizes and respects the hidden dangers. The funeral arrangements, visitation, and funeral can be complicated because of the circumstances surrounding the death. Opioids can affect the vessels and tissues of the body and cause embalming issues for embalmers. Funeral directors and embalmers need to be aware of safety procedures before embalming and to incorporate strict personal protective equipment. There are different embalming techniques for embalming an individual who was on opioids at the time of death as well as those who have overdosed on opioids. This course will also describe strategies to help combat overdoses in the funeral home.
  • Professional Ethics - 2HRS
    Professional ethics is a vast field of study, with categories and subcategories relating to every conceivable topic and issue.  Many medical and health-related disciplines establish their own ethical codes and standards of conduct, which encapsulate the compiled wisdom of countless individuals and years of professional experience.  Their study offers practitioners the opportunity to learn from their predecessors’ mistakes instead of their own. 
  • Serving Survivors of Suicide Loss - 2HRS
    Funeral service professionals serve surviving family members who have experienced a loss with compassionate care. When the loss of a loved one is due to suicide, the grief response of survivors can be more complex and complicated than that of an accident, homicide, or natural death. Funeral directors can better serve suicide survivors by recognizing the complex emotions and feelings that may be experienced. Preparing and providing resources for survivors can be dramatically beneficial in their journey to healing and finding a new normal in their life.
  • Texas Mortuary Law Update - 2HRS
    This course covers the most current versions of the Texas Occupations Code and the Texas Administrative Code. All of the information in this program was adapted from the TFSC under “governing laws.”
  • Texas Vital Statistics Update - 2HRS
    This course is devoted to death registration in the Texas vital registration system. It provides instructions for completing and filing death certificates along with related permits. Also, it will review the rules relating to cemeteries, types of cemeteries, and miscellaneous provisions that will apply to the funeral industry in Texas.
