Embalmers play an important role in the funeralization process through the disinfection, preservation and restoration of the deceased. Our Embalmer Certificate prepares students to be licensed as an embalmer, specializing in embalming and restorative arts and completing the embalming process within the provincial framework and the acts and regulations governing funeral service in the Province of Alberta.

Integrating theory and practice, you will gain new skills in the health sciences, arterial injection embalming, laws and regulations and restorative art.
