The State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services approved the Green Burial Masterclass for 12 continuing education credits for funeral directors. Every state has their own licensing requirements. This is our first approval in the state of Wisconsin.
Lee Webster and Holly Blue Hawkins didn’t develop the course specifically for funeral directors, but we’ve seen a lot of interest from existing funeral service providers. Some funeral directors see green burial as a potential disrupter to their business, but many more see it as an opportunity to expand their product offerings and respond to the changing preferences of their customers.
After completing the course, some will pursue their “Certificate of Proficiency in Green Burial Cemetery Operation” through the Green Burial Council.
