Mortuary Science Accreditation Required Visit

The accrediting agency, the American Board of Funeral Service Education (ABFSE), requires that a program representative visit the funeral home where instruction will be accomplished PRIOR to any instruction. This means a member of the DMACC faculty or another funeral director/embalmer not employed by the funeral home, will travel to the funeral home to verify "the location has a valid, current license… is clean and adequate for instructional purposes… The inspection must ensure that appropriate equipment and protocols (drench shower, eye wash station, SDS [formerly MSDS] and blood borne pathogen program, ventilation system, proper protective equipment, etc.) are in place and functioning."

To accomplish this, we charge a fee of $250 for each student as they enroll in MOR 301. ​
