Some online schools with funeral services programs that offer embalming classes are Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science, St. Petersburg College, American Academy McAllister Institute, Amarillo College and Jefferson State Community College. The American Board of Funeral Service Education website provides a list of other online schools that offer mortuary science programs with these types of courses.
Some different types of embalming courses offered online may be embalming chemistry, embalming theory and preservation techniques, as noted by Learn.org. However, it is important to note that embalming clinical and restorative arts labs, which require hands-on practice, are conducted onsite at the school campus or in an approved facility that is off campus, as noted by the American Board of Funeral Service Education.
The different degrees available in the field of mortuary science can include an associate of applied science or a funeral services associate in science.
