    Last Updated On: Jun 23, 2017  |  Originally Published On:  Jun 08, 2017
    If you're a licensed funeral practitioner, the International Conference of Funeral Service Examining Boards (ICFSEB) is asking you to complete the Funeral Practitioner Job/Task Analysis Survey and to share the link with your fellow licensed practitioners.

    "This survey will help capture new developments in the field as well as shape future Funeral Service licensure exams," says Lauren Thomas, Member Services Manager of the ICFSEB. "Your participation is crucial to better understanding the job and the nature of the field, and it is extremely important that you provide your feedback about the job by completing this survey." The link below will lead you to the survey, as well as instructions as to how to complete it.
    Participants in this survey will be awarded one half (1/2) hour of continuing education credit. Submit proof of participation with your next license renewal.

    The survey will be available until July 7, 2017.
