DipFD Direct Entry Route – Northern Ireland

£235.00

Welcome to the new NAFD DipFD Direct Entry Route, which is the fast-track route for registration to the NAFD DipFD training programme.

The aim of the Direct Entry Route is to provide education opportunities to long serving funeral professionals with extensive experience but no formal prior qualifications. The launch of the Direct Entry Route now enables those individuals to register for the DipFD without the need to complete a precursor qualification or training programme, providing they can prove their competence and knowledge of funeral arranging in the integrated assessment process.

Through the Direct Entry Route, the current competence of funeral individuals is assessed through an online pre-qualifying assessment aimed at testing the current knowledge and understanding of legislation and practice associated with arranging a funeral. In addition, individuals will be required to complete an online application form with a series of experience-based questions. The final part of the process involves providing evidence of arranging and conducting 75 funerals over a 3-year period.

The Direct Entry Route is not applicable to individuals who have successfully completed the NAFD DipFAA, LAFD Cert FAA or new online NAFD FAA programme.

Please select this course if you are working in Northern Ireland.

Please remember: If you haven’t already registered for the website, you need to create an account before you checkout and pay for the Direct Entry Route. Click on the Register button to complete registration.  When purchasing, only one registration can be purchased at a time and registration must be completed under the account of the student taking the course, not under an Employer account.

You will be required to provide evidence of any previous qualification or training programmes which you have highlighted above, before you are accepted on to the course.
