The Certified Pet Crematory Operator Program (CPCO), a collaboration between the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories and the Cremation Association of North America, is designed to ensure that you and your employees have the most current crematory operations training available in the market today. Participation in the CANA/IAOPCC CPCO Program assures the public that you are committed to safe pet cremation practices and that the utmost respect and care is a priority.
You will gain extensive knowledge - technical, scientific, and legal--all of which is proactive prevention for future business problems. The classroom component will address major topic process, equipment and operations, the cremation process in detail, and standards and ethics. The final exam will also be administered online. The course is taught using small group activities, case studies, videos, whole class discussions and lecture. A detailed manual is also provided for use during class and serves as an important reference tool after returning to work.
Taught by industry experts, this program provides pet loss and cremation professionals of all backgrounds and levels of experience a thorough knowledge of the practices and procedures that will help reduce the risk of litigation.
