continuing education


The Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing requires each funeral director to complete at least 15 hours of approved continuing education during each biennial renewal period. The next biennium ends December 4, 2021.

At least 3 hours must be in each of the following subject categories:

  1. Grief counseling or communication.
  2. Professional conduct, business ethics or legal aspects specifically related to practice in the profession.
  3. Business management concepts relating specifically to delivery of services to a consumer.
  4. Technical or practical aspects of the profession.

The WFDA offers a wide selection of continuing education opportunitites, including the Annual Convention and Fall Conference. We also offer Pre-Licensing and Preneed Courses quarterly which fulfill all 15 continuing education hours for funeral directors to satisfy the 2020/2021 biennium requirements in all four categories and 2020 OSHA.
