As we are an Association, we are not in the position to offer advice regarding recruitment for funeral homes or Embalming positions in particular. We can advise you that there is no requirement to have a qualification prior to entering the industry and however courses are only available once you are employed in the industry.

There is currently no shortage of Embalmers or Funeral Directors in Australia and seeking employment in this area is just as challenging to enter as any other career, therefore we would suggest that you compile a comprehensive resume and submit it to funeral homes.

You may wish to refer to our other website www.afda.org.au to find a list of the Australian Funeral Directors Association members.
