Pennsylvania State Licensing for Funeral Directors

You must obtain a license to become a funeral director, embalmer or funeral director/embalmer in the state of Pennsylvania. Applicants must be 21 years old and meet specific requirements. The State Board of Funeral Directors regulates the licensure and practice of funeral directors in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The Board's functions include the formulation of necessary rules and regulations for the proper conduct of the business or profession of funeral directing in order to safeguard the interests of the public and the standards of the profession. In addition, the Board fixes the time and place for the examination necessary to obtain a license and, through its authorized inspector, conducts inspections of funeral homes.
