Arrangement Counselor and Law Review Training

Since 1996, CFDA’s law review course has been the premier training resource for men and women preparing for a career in the funeral profession. Support your professional association and not the for-profit imitators. All course revenues allow CFDA to advocate for your profession with regulators and the California Legislature.

As a nonprofit organization, CFDA is able to provide you and your employees the competitive advantage that other for-profit companies simply can’t compete with, including: 

  • Lowest price
  • Highest exam pass rate
  • In-person and online courses
  • Expert instructors
  • Arrangement Counselor certification
  • State exam preparation
  • Over 22 years of instruction

At just $199 for CFDA members AND non-members, and $100 for students, the choice is clear: trust the name that thousands and men and women have trusted for their professional education needs: CFDA.

Online Law Review Course

CFDA is the only organization that offers an online law review course that will allow you or your employees to take the course at their own pace—either all at once or breaking it into one-hour sections—from the comfort of their home or office. Each participant will be provided with an electronic copy of the study materials and will have the chance to submit questions to be answered by the instructor. Hard copies of the materials can be purchased for an additional $24 with free shipping.
