Published 2:55 pm Monday, September 8, 2008

Don Daniels of Dunklin & Daniels Funeral Home in Greenville, CDSP, has recently qualified the designation of Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP), by the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice.

A number of professions grant special recognition to members upon completion of specified academic and professional programs and “CFSP” is funeral service’s national individual recognition.

The Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice, since its 1976 founding, has had as its goals: 1) To recognize those practitioners who have voluntarily entered into a program of personal and professional growth, 2) To raise and improve standards of funeral service and 3) To encourage practitioners to make continuing education a life-long process in their own self interest, the interest of the families they serve, and the community in which they serve.

In addition, the practitioner is required to accumulate 20 hours per week to recertify. Credits are awarded by the Academy for work leading to personal and or/professional growth in four areas.
