When choosing a funeral home, ask your Funeral Director if he/she is certified by the Colorado Funeral Service Board and ask to see their certificate.
The Colorado Funeral Service Board (CFSB) is a certification program administered by the CFDA for the advancement of professionalism within the funeral service industry in Colorado. CFSB certification is strictly voluntary and individuals may apply for a number of professional certifications. There are more than 180 individuals currently certified by the Colorado Funeral Service Board.
Certification is a valuable personal asset that:
These individuals have committed to upholding high ethical standards, a high degree of professionalism, continued practical competence and ongoing education that will benefit consumers and the funeral service profession in Colorado.
Since the certification program is voluntary and is not mandated by the State of Colorado, the Colorado Funeral Service Board has no enforcement authority or legal control over violations.
Certifications require renewal each calendar year.
