 Seminar Topics

Standard Applications and Non-Traditional Applications That Surprisingly Work Amazingly Well

Use of the correct chemicals/product is imperative to the embalmer’s success. In this program we will take a look at several cases and the chemical choices of the embalmer and why. We will discuss available options and the purpose of many chemicals found in prep rooms across the nation. Product knowledge is the key to the embalmer’s success.

Jaundice – Three Solutions to an Often Perceived Difficult Dilemma

Jaundice - one of the most feared cases facing embalmers today. This program will help program participants better understand different approaches to treating jaundiced cases to create a successful end result. Commencing with pre-embalming analysis to casketing, participants will understand why jaundiced cases are handled differently than most. We will take a look at the causes and the embalmer’s cure with three different proven chemical solutions as we successfully embalm and begin to realize it is more than just color.


Shipping Remains By Air...With Good Results vs Horrific Outcomes!

This program will demonstrate how to almost guarantee that the body you ship will arrive in the same condition it was in when leaving your care.

Caring For Infants...One of the Toughest Parts of the Job

Without question, one of the toughest parts of the job for many embalmers is the embalming infants with a positive outcome and application of cosmetics that will help create a good memory picture.
