I'm a bit odd. Right now I'm a college student in the mortuary program and I hope to one day be one of the greatest funeral home directors ever and one of the greatest writers :)

I never said I was just doing embalming. I'm doing it all. Each state has different requirements to become licensed. In some states you can do just funeral directing (making the arrangements) and some states you can do just embalming ( even if you just do embalming, facial reconstruction and cosmetics are part of that). In VA its a dual Funeral Directors and Embalmers licence, meaning you have to do both funeral directing and embalming in order to be licensed. I hope you don't have any trouble getting hired as an apprentice somewhere. Good luck! If you need help with anything, let me know. I dont know everything, but I can share what I do know.
Hmm. Its my understanding that the Chester campus is the one where you take classes for mortuary science...that's where their embalming facilities are. I have been working in a funeral home for a year and a half now. I just started my apprenticeship last month and I'm loving it. Haven't started classes yet though. I'm supposed to start in the spring semester.
You must be going to John Tyler Community College in Chester, VA. That's where I'm going, its the only school in VA that has mortuary science. Let me know when you find out if you'll be able to make it. Its always nice to make new friends that share an interest in hearses and funeral service. Hope to see you there :)
