Green Fuse Funeral Training has achieved Recognised Learning Centre status with the Open College Network (OCN).
The centre’s Jane Morrell, said: “We are delighted to have achieved this recognition by OCN, which confirms the high quality of our courses and teaching methods. Our funeral celebrant training programme is a Level 3 accredited course, and we are in the process of seeking accreditation for our funeral directors’ training, Best Practice In Modern Funeral Directing.”
Green Fuse has been providing training to the UK funeral sector since 2007. It has trained more than 100 independent funeral celebrants , 60 Methodist ministers and chaplains on individualising funerals, and approximately 40 funeral arrangers.
According to a statement from the centre, its new programme for funeral directors, Best Practice In Modern Funeral Directing, “is designed to enable funeral directors to respond to changing public expectations for more individual and contemporary funerals, clear information and pricing, and a high level of customer service and attention.”
Co-founder of Greenfuse, Simon Smith, added: “This training for funeral directors, run in association with Stephen Nimmo of Chester Pearce Associates, comes as a result of our funeral work with families in Devon, and the learning gained through the Foundation Degree in Funeral Services which Steve and I completed in 2011.”
