All students receive specialized training from nationally recognized experts as part of the curriculum.
B.M.S. graduates emerge certified in cremation operations, along with extensive knowledge of the practices and procedures that will help them best serve families and reduce the risk of litigation for a firm.
Why is certification imperative? Cremation is the fastest growing market in funeral service, with rates approaching nearly 50%. Nearly two dozen states already require crematory operators hold certification. Service professionals must be equipped with the knowledge and skill set to guide a family through the array of service and tribute options available today.
B.M.S. students earn the distinction as InSight Certified Funeral Celebrants after receiving intense training and certification from our faculty licensed InSight trainers. CCMS is the first, and currently only mortuary science school, to offer this training and certification as part of the bachelor curriculum.
Why is certification an advantage? Celebrants are becoming increasingly popular in today’s diverse communities, including those families who opt for a secular tribute without a clergy officiant. Graduates emerge prepared to offer funeral and memorial services, or tributes that are personalized and individualized to reflect the personality and life-style of the deceased. Celebrants coordinate directly with families and through funeral homes to provide these services.
