Its time for a National Board Exam Update!

Help Shape the National Board Exam - Volunteer Opportunity!

Every six years, The Conference undertakes an update to the Job Task Analysis survey that will become the basis for future National and State Board Exams. This step in the exam development process is integral to the validity of these exams by making sure they continue to be relevant to the job duties of funeral directors and embalmers nationwide. This project calls for licensees from across the country to contribute their time and talents and wed love to have YOU join us.
