Funeral Industry Development Australia’s scope of Training entitles us to train, assess and issue certificates in:

SIF20113 Certificate II in Funeral Operations
SIF30313 Certificate III in Funeral Operations
SIF40213 Certificate IV in Embalming and
SIF40113 Certificate IV in Funeral Services

A pre-requisite of training is that participants must be employed in the Funeral Services Industry for each course.

Learning Materials:

Creative and interesting new learning materials have been developed. The learning materials include all underpinning knowledge and skills required to enable participants to apply their knowledge in a broad range of situations.   The materials utilise a variety of learning methods – practical demonstration, group discussion, videos (where appropriate), role plays etc.


In keeping with the AQF standards, assessments have moved away from written examinations and a “score” or mark out of 100.  Broader assessment tools are used to establish competency. These include verbal and written quizzes, practical skills demonstration and questioning, maintenance of a journal, case studies assignments and role plays.
