Don F. Campbell, CFSP, of Covington, employee of Caldwell & Cowan Funeral Home, has recently qualified for recertification of Certified Funeral Service Practitioner by the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice.
A number of professions grant special recognition to members at completion of specified academic and professional programs, and CFSP is funeral service’s national individual recognition.
Since its founding in 1976, the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice has had as its goals to recognize practitioners who have voluntarily entered into a program of personal and professional growth, to raise and improve the standards of funeral service and to encourage practitioners to make continuing education a life-long process for themselves and the families and communities they serve.
To receive the award, the practitioner must complete a 180-hour program of continuing education. In addition, the practitioner is required to accumulate 20 hours per year to recertify. Credits are awarded for work leading to growth in four areas: academic activities, professional activities, career review and community and civic activities.
