According to ABFSE, each state has its own licensing regulations governing entry as a funeral director, and the amount of college required varies from state to state--from none to four years.
ABFSE notes that there are generally more jobs available than there are licensed funeral directors to fill them; however, this varies from region to region and from town to town.
Since this is, as ABFSE notes, a human service profession, the students learn about the burial rituals of various religions and fraternal organizations, how to coordinate people and activities, and how to anticipate and meet the needs of families and friends who are in mourning.
