If I attend mortuary college, do I still have to complete a two year apprenticeship program?

Teresa -

No. If you obtain an associate degree from a college accredited by the American Board of Funeral Service Education, then only a one year apprenticeship program is required. The apprenticeship can be done either before, during or after mortuary college as long as the apprentice is a bona fide paid employee working not less than forty (40) hours per week in the presence of and under the direction and supervision of a licensed funeral director and/or embalmer.
