MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS
Amarillo College educates morticians and funeral directors based on the highest industry standards, with accreditation provided by the American Board of Funeral Service Education. The Mortuary Science Department strives to ensure that students are prepared to comply with federal, state and local regulatory guidelines. AC understands that the best funeral-service professionals are sensitive to bereaved families and committed to public health, safety, and welfare in caring for human remains.
A funeral director oversees funeral arrangements and works with grieving family members immediately following the loss of loved ones. A mortician compassionately prepares bodies of the deceased for burial or cremation. A funeral director often will be involved with preparing the remains, performing a ceremony to honor the deceased, addressing the spiritual needs of the family, and appropriately disposing of the remains. Funeral service workers are employed in funeral homes and crematories. They are often on call. Most work full time.
