When Your License is on the Line
Becoming a licensed embalmer and funeral director is a way to help your community through difficult times. The Connecticut Department of Public Health will monitor your licensure, and violations could lead to a revocation of your license. A few reasons a license might be revoked are:
Improper allocation of funds. Clients trust you to handle funeral expenses properly.
Improper record keeping. Handling sensitive information and dealing with serious matters means it is important to track things for both you and your clients’ protection.
Failure to comply with health code. Violations may result in a warning, but failure to fix will lead to a suspended license.
