be at least 20 years of age before commencing the formal training programme.
must be employees of funeral/embalming companies and have at least one
year's relevant employment in the industry before commencing the formal
training programme. Normally for the National Diploma in Embalming, this
will mean that they have had at least one year relevant experience in
the practice of embalming.
There are no minimum
academic entry requirements for either programme, but the applicants must
demonstrate that they have a reasonable likelihood of success. This will
be ascertained during the period of employment prior to enrolment on the
