embalmers funeral body embalming

Education and Training: High school plus training; license

Salary: Average—$34,690 per year

Employment Outlook: Good

Definition and Nature of the Work

Embalmers prepare the dead for burial. The embalming process disinfects the body to prevent the spread of disease. It also preserves the body for funeral services. Most embalmers work for funeral homes, hospitals, medical schools, and morgues (places where bodies are held until they can be identified or until the cause of death can be determined). Many embalmers also serve as funeral directors.

Embalmers must know and follow the laws that deal with the handling and treatment of dead bodies. When they are given a body to prepare, they wash it with germicidal soap and dry it. They also shave the body if necessary. During the embalming process, embalmers insert tubes into the body to remove the blood and replace it with embalming fluid. Embalmers sometimes also reshape parts of the body using materials such as cotton, plastic, or wax. They may apply cosmetics to give the face a lifelike appearance. They also dress the body and arrange it in a casket. If the body is to be sent to another area for burial, embalmers place it in a special transportation case.

Embalmers who work for small funeral homes also perform other tasks, such as serving as pallbearers or helping during funeral services. Embalmers who work in hospitals, medical schools, or morgues help to prepare bodies for autopsies, which are examinations after death, or for dissection. They may also help at autopsies. Sometimes they have to file police reports or testify at inquests, which are official inquiries into the cause of death.

Education and Training Requirements

Interested individuals can begin to prepare for a career as an embalmer while in high school. Courses in science and art are useful for the technical and artistic sides of embalming. If individuals want to work in other areas of funeral service, they will find that psychology, sociology, speech, and business subjects are also helpful. Prospective embalmers can get practical experience working part time or during summers in a funeral home.

After receiving formal training in mortuary science or funeral service, embalmers must serve an apprenticeship and pass a state board examination. (© Martha Tabor/Working Images Photographs. Reproduced by permission.)

There are special programs to train embalmers. They are called mortuary science programs and are offered by private vocational schools. They take nine months to three years to complete. A few colleges also offer four-year programs in funeral service. Candidates will need to serve an apprenticeship of one to three years during or after formal training.

All states require embalmers to be licensed. Requirements vary, but, typically, candidates must be at least twenty-one years old and a graduate of a high school and a mortuary science school. Prospective embalmers usually need to complete an apprenticeship and pass a state board examination. Most states require a year or more of college before individuals can start their specialized training. Most embalmers get a license as a funeral director as well.

Getting the Job

Interested candidates can apply directly to funeral homes or other institutions that employ embalmers. A local phone book can be a good source for contact information. Although most funeral homes are family businesses, many employ people who are not members of the family. Embalmers may continue working at funeral homes where they had part-time jobs while still in school or where they served apprenticeships. Most schools of mortuary science have placement services that can help candidates to find a job. Newspaper classifieds and Internet job banks may list openings. Prospective workers can also contact professional associations for information on available positions. Members of the clergy may be able to introduce job seekers to local funeral directors.

Advancement Possibilities and Employment Outlook

Embalmers who choose to remain strictly in the field of embalming can become a chief embalmer in a large funeral home, hospital, medical school, or morgue. Embalmers on the staff of hospitals or medical schools can be appointed to the boards of professional associations and can write articles for professional and scientific journals. Some embalmers become teachers.

Most embalmers, however, expand their activities and become funeral directors. They can buy an existing funeral home or start a new one. Either venture requires a great deal of money, but loans are available to qualified people.

The employment outlook for embalmers is expected to be good. As the proportion of people over the age of fifty-five continues to grow, the number of deaths will likely increase. Also, many jobs will open as workers retire or leave the field.

Working Conditions

The embalming process is done in clean, well-lighted rooms that must pass state inspections. Embalmers must often lift and carry bodies and other heavy objects during embalming and during funeral services. They must be able to work well with their hands. Because embalmers sometimes meet the family and friends of the deceased, they must have the ability to deal tactfully with people who are under emotional stress.

Embalmers often work more than forty hours per week. Their hours may be irregular, because there may be slow periods followed by a series of funerals within a short period. In larger establishments embalmers may work shifts; in smaller ones they may be on call at all times. Sometimes embalmers work for several funeral homes.

Earnings and Benefits

Licensed embalmers earn a median salary of $34,690 per year. Salaries vary, however, depending on experience, geographical location, and the volume of business at particular establishments. Benefits include paid holidays and vacations, health insurance, and pension plans.

I live in Long Beach California, the college that offers the degree for this field is in the area. Go to Cypress College. I'm starting this fall... I can't wait. It's one of my dreams and I can't wait to help the dead and there families and loved ones. This is a job that most should have, because maybe this society will have a bit more compassion for the human race as a whole. I wish all who are truly interested in this field the best of luck. I hope that this industry opens there arms to teach all of us new comers so we can give as much as you do, not because the pay but because we love what we do and are wanting to learn.

Ps. We're not freaks, we just look at life for what it is and not ignore what is coming to all of us anyways. We all have to die... and to be honest I would rather have someone care and respect my vessel than treat it with no respect. STOP HATING! its bad for you

I think that this is a career field that is either for you or not for you at all. After reading some of the comments left, I don't think that most people understand why anyone would want a job in this career field. I can see why. It's gruesome, but at the same time so real. Most of the people that you'll come across are innocent, feeble, you can see their life, who they were...All this by just looking at them. Everyone does die, that's a given DUH fact. But they need someone just like we will need someone when we pass on. Some of the comments posted about this career choice were absolutely the dummest thing I have EVER read before. I don't see nor understand why the person posted it. If you don't agree you don't agree, there's no sense in posting a retard comment that makes you look like a jackass. To all those going out for this career, I commend you and wish you the best in all you do. The journey may be hard, but I know to those who are serious, it'll be worthwhile. May God bless you all!:p

University of Tennessee offers forensic studies (Funeral Directors/Embalmers) Mortuary Science studies. They also have a awesome BODY FARM. This body farm is used for studies of all kinds of fields. The bodies actually rot and studients do studies on how long is takes for the decaying process and for the body to swell, become engrosed with magets and all kinds of nasty stuff that SOME people actually want to learn about.

Just go to the University of Tennessee website and check out the information for yourself.

I want to become an embalmer and am seriously wanting to take up the classes but I don't want to take a 2 yr course. I've had most of my high schooling classes that pretty much are included in the classes that are said that I need AFTER high school and I don't want to have to repeat everything I already learned. How would I come by taking a shorter course maybe even OJT to get this career? And would I have to re-take all these classes?

Most of my friends are becoming embalmers or coroners, and I'm becoming a funeral director myself. A lot of people wonder why we should choose such a morbid field of work, but I have no issues with the dead. It is simply a corpse, and when people die, they want to look presentable. What's so wrong with wanting to help people look nice in death? Makeup artist work with the living, an embalmer works with the dead.

I do this as a job and love it! The down fall is that, yes, the salary stinks.. It's a bit more than what it's being quoted on there, but you still can't buy a house. I do it for passion but am pursuing another field. I just wish the industry can appreciate what our job is and pay us more. I can't understand why they are so greedy! It's not like they're losing money to pay us anymore. They're all just extremely GREEDY! If yearly salary rate changes every few months or years for other jobs, why shouldn't the funeral industry change too? It's sad to see, CNA's make more money than we do.

i never knew what embalming was, i looked it up and was surprized of what i found(not in a bad way)... I never thought about working in this area before but when my dad passed away a few months ago, i started to think... What do they do to people after they die? I heard some stories and wondered if they were true... from what i read they are... this is probably something i should look into. Interesting...

i really really want to go to school to be an embalmer but i dont know if that is what i want to do for the rest of my life. Like i dont always want to be on call. whether it is two in the morning or two in the afternoon, if you are called you have to go. You cant really have a personal life. Much less any kids. unless i were to have a stay at home husband. but then i would always be working so that relationship wuld fail. so im not left with a lot of choice.



Then i was thinking pharmacy, but omg do you know how hard it is to get into pharmacy?? like you have to be a straight up genious. like 3.5 gpa and 28 act scores. I have the whole 3.5 gpa but i straight sucked on my acts and got an 18!



These are things that when looking into a career you need to ask yourself. look at the pros and cons and make a list of what is important to you then make the best decision you can based on that list.



Thanks fur reading :]

This is something I've known I wanted to do from childhood. I grew up around hospitals and spent a lot of time exploring places and I always seemed to find my way to the morgue. My only problem is I live 4 hours away from the nearest school, so I'm stuck working with the mentally disabled instead. Not fulfilling my dreams and desires at all. :(

Rather Not Say



I think that this is a career field that is either for you or not for you at all. After reading some of the comments left, I don't think that most people understand why anyone would want a job in this career field. I can see why. It's gruesome, but at the same time so real. Most of the people that you'll come across are innocent, feeble, you can see their life, who they were...All this by just looking at them. Everyone does die, that's a given DUH fact. But they need someone just like we will need someone when we pass on. Some of the comments posted about this career choice were absolutely the dummest thing I have EVER read before. I don't see nor understand why the person posted it. If you don't agree you don't agree, there's no sense in posting a retard comment that makes you look like a jackass. To all those going out for this career, I commend you and wish you the best in all you do. The journey may be hard, but I know to those who are seriou

Hi,

I am a student of Lagos state university Nigeria, studying industrial relation and personnel management. Have been doing part-time job as an embalmer as i have undergone the training for years and certifiicate doesn't seems to come. i still very much have keen interest in this job as i know that the dead deserve the best preparation before they are finally buried. i know what is worth doing but will appreciate it if i can still undergo training under your supervision so that i can become certified.

Sincerly, i will be so glad if i can receive a favourable reply from you(smartstep69@yahoo.com)or to my p.o.box, 19559 ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.

The death of a loved ones could be a tragic but always wants to be among those who give dead ones the best befitting burial

I'm 18 years old and I'm in my first year of community college. I'm really interested in embalming but I'm not sure where to go from here. I've looked at some websites but they all just talk about running a funeral home and not embalming. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me out and tell me where I should go from here.

I just came across the interest of embalming, mainly through the hurt of how horrible it was to remember my grandmother in such a horrible state in her funeral. This is a career I would take very seriously if anyone can give me any advise I would be very thankful, thank you.

Currently taking transferrable credit and looking for a funeral home to volunteer at in illinois. Which i will be doing until december which is when i will transfer to a university, siue to be exact. I hear they have a pretty good funeral program. I know all i need to know currently and i thank all the people that are currently in the field or the ones that are doing the same as i am currently. I have no questions because i have answered them all on my own with all of the research i have done. I've researched pictures, videos, documentary movies, movies, and i've read plenty of books and material to make sure this is the field i want to go into.

I've also added a few courses to my load which may be useful in the future, computers, economics, because economics does affect any business or any industry for that matter. I'm going to deeper my studies into that so i understand the whole stock market, and the aspects...

Hi, I was wondering what highschool classes am I supposed to have to become an Embalmer. I've been interested in this type of work since I was fairly young. I am also entering grade 12 this fall and was wondering what classes should I enroll in? If someone can email me or something, that would be very much appreciated. And after highschool, what classes do I take in university/college? I'm confused but SO interested! Thanks in advance.

I am fascinated with the idea of embalming!

I will soon graduate and i'm planning on going straight to a mortuary scince program,as a matter of fact I am already enrolled in my classes. I am pretty sure that more than one of you get the amazemed "omg" stare when you tell people of your career/future career..etc. Weirdly enoung i like getting those types of reactions, they work as a bit of motivaiton,they think its crazy will i think its insane, but some of us were born to be insane>:)

I find it amazing that there are so many people on here that just say "It's a F*$&%*@ job"...I have worked in my family run funeral home for five years and it is everything but a everyday job. Hours can be extremely long and emotionally draining. And just to give people that are thinking about a career in funeral service, If you don't own a funeral home, you are not going to make the money you think.

Wow! Are people really that ignorant? This isn't one of those occupations where you say..hey, it's an f*in job! This is a very respectful occupation, and embalmers and funeral staff are greatly unappreciated! As someone else stated, these morons have obviously not lost loved ones and had to deal with funeral preparations. This is an interesting line of work and not meant for just anyone. It does take a lot of compassion to be able to deal with grieving families, comply with their requests, and prep a passed loved one to be viewed by family and friends. My props to embalmers and other funeral staff :) KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK GUYS!!!

Wow! Reading everyone's comments, I didn't know there were so many people interested in this field. I just went to a school today to look into their mortuary science program and I am highly thinking about starting in September.I graduate this Spring with an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice and I'm ready to pursue my 14 year thought of becoming an embalmer. Reading all of your comments make me want to do it even more. Thanks everyone.

Having viewed the embalming process at
18 yrs. of age I was ultimately obsessed. Later on after maturity I entered a Mortuary Science Program and of course to work in the prep room you
must be enrolled in a m.s.school and
apply to your state for a student license.Dealing with families is another division in which I defer, instead the Chief Embalmer or Trade Embalmer works as several family owned funeral homes get busy and have even relieved themselves of maintaining a licensed embalmer or simply all big cities have trade services that do everything. I can work vacations from contacts I make at state conventions and cover shifts for all various reasons. However everystate has different requirements since I was in school 30 plus years ago. For instance Iowa requires 90hours of college credit.
There are four year m.s. programs and for those who can't acess by computer try the local library. It is a very rewarding career in self-worth and nurturing not just the money.I have read a lot of sillly questions and comments and can only hope that those people donot enter this field.

Hi, This is something I am doing for a science presentation, and I am seriously thinking about this as a job for the future. It may seem a little strange but I think I want to be a Embalmer. My cousin thinks there is something wrong with it but she wont be saying that when I am making all that money..LOL So I think i'm going to give it a try.

i think that this field is a great field also,and because i work in this industry, i can say that the funeral industry has come a long way.I agree with you Johanna about the knucklehead named Fred. obviously he has not had a family member to leave this earth and want their body preserved so that he may see them one more time and especially if there were ill, sorry to say but sometimes people look better at their death than when they were living. and so Fred whats the difference when you have an operation, some one has to look at your insides. are they weirdos too.

my sentiments to everyone who has a heart for this field and good luck.

I am 16, a sophomore in high school. I'm actually in class right now, because we have to do research on what we want to pursue for a career. I think I want to become an embalmer, but I'm not quite sure if I could handle working with the bodies. How might I figure out how I am around them, or overcome this fear? I've called some funeral homes, but they don't allow obervations of embalmings for privacy reasons. please respond. xhardrockerx@cox.net

I think that this is an interesting field to explore. My mom works at a local nursing home and she would tell me stories of how she used to bathe the dead and dress them for the funeral home to come and pick them up. I think this is where the curiosity struck me that I should try something new. I used to visit a local funeral home when I was in high school, and I would sit and talk with on of the funeral directors (not knowing at that time that this was something I wanted to do!) I'm going to attempt to learn as much as I can and see where I can go with this!

I live in Washington State. Where there aren't any Colleges of Mortuary Science. BUMMER.
I've been reading a lot about death and embalming and decay and all that. It's incredibly interesting, and I think embalming is something I could really do.
Unfortunately, I do not have the means to move to a different state to pursue this career.
Does anybody know if it would be at all possible to VIEW the embalming process? Or is that generally not allowed? Because if I'm going to move away from home, I want to know EXACTLY what I'm getting myself into. Thanks. :)

I live in a small town in Alabama and have found it extremely difficult to get my foot into any funeral home around in my area. I am a 40yr. old female and have all my pre-requisites finished but before I can continue my EDUCATION, I must serve an APPRENTICESHIP with a funeral home. Take note: I cannot (by Alabama state law) enter into College for Mortuary Science until I have a full time job in a Funeral Home. I have also found that ALABAMA still has sexist issues. In my area of Wellington, Ala. I have NEVER seen a female FUNERAL DIRECTOR nor a FEMALE EMBALMER. This is my dream career and I want it bad. I do not know anybody in the business in my state so I have little hope of becoming what I have always dreamt of becoming. If ANYBODY can help out please let me know and I would greately appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone. I have been interested in embalming ( Thanatopraxie in France )for 5 years now but because i live in france the diplomes you need for it are unreal and it takes normally up to 10 years before you can do it. I have been here for 8 years and i speak fluent french but in the domain of learning different medical terms its another story. I stopped school because they are so strict here so unfortunately i couldn't pursue my dream job. half of me wants to stay in France and the other half is confused. I'm thinking of coming back to the U.K to be able to study there. My only problem is i had a collapsed lung about a year ago and it says's on the french websites that it involves lifting heavy things ( obviously) I would appreciate any advice that's given to me so please e-mail me at : jessica_0K@hotmail.com. Many thanks to all of you

i have read all of the comments and while most are positive, i have to address the negative. Put yourself in this position: a loved one, maybe your mother or father passes away. it feels like your whole life just crashed down in front of you. don't you want your loved one to be treated with the utmost respect to prepare them for their funeral? you love them so much and you want the best for them right? that's where funeral directors/embalmers come in. they are not freaks, weirdos, etc. they are there for you and compassionate and understanding. they have been in your shoes before so think again before you criticize someone who wants a career in this field. thank you

Hi, I am a high school senior, and am in need of advice on my best plan. I sincerely want to become and embalmer and funeral home director. I have had no previous experience; I do not come from a mortician family. What should I do? Next year, I will most likely enter Buena Vista University, get a bachelor's degree in biology and then move on to a mortuary school. Is there a faster/better way to do this? I just feel that I'm way behind others pursuing this carreer, and I want to know that I'm on the right track. Any advice/help would be very much appreciated. My email is jessflores615@yahoo.com Thank you

I have just enrolled in a Funeral Science program but I was wondering if someone could tell me if it's feasible to get a job as ONLY an embalmer. I never want to work with the families. I am a nervous laugher. I'm sure you can see the issue there. I don't want to waste my college career on something I can't get a job doing. Any help?

Wow, most of these comments are great! And I won't waste my time commenting on the negative ones therefore, kuddos to those of us that are truely following our dream to become part of this industry! I'll be forty in two years and am just now starting to enter this field. I know all of my journeys to this point has helped me make the final discision for such a career. Since I was a little boy one of my top two dream careers was to become a tailor and a funeral director. Looking forward to the challenges and rewards it will bring!1

As a licensed funeral director/embalmer that works for a man that was a Mortuary Science professor for 14 yrs, our best advice is to get as much college as you can before getting into the field. Whether it be a Bachelor's in Business Administration or a Master's in Psychology, it is best to be well educated and mature before completing a Mortuary Science degree. You'll be better off in the long run, and getting a job will be easier.

I've been a funeral director and embalmer for almost 30 years. It's one of the most rewarding jobs in this world. It does not pay as well as some. I own my own funeral home, although it be small I make a little more than back in the days when I worked for others. I agree with some of the comments. It should pay better. I love this job!

I think its very funny how people consider embalming for sickos or freaks when a mature person would know that its only a body. Its lifeless, we all have to die someday and quite frankly I want my body taken care of after I die but it really doesnt matter because im not in there. Thats just the physical "casing" that embodied my spirit. Once you move up and possibly own your own funeral home, the $$$ is very rewarding. A close friend of my family owns a funeral home with her husband and when she told me she makes a few thousand a body, that definitely made the job seem easier....so for all the "normal" people who want a 9 to 5 and stress and listen to their boss all day for 50-60 thousand a year, by all means go ahead. I'll gladly own a funeral home and deal with bodies for 5 times more than that :) Theres nothing wrong with embalming, someone has to do it
