To become an apprentice, you must be at least 18 years of age, and you must have a high school diploma or GED certificate. In order to begin an apprenticeship, you must submit a Funeral Apprenticeship Application to the Georgia Funeral Service Board.
You may serve as an apprentice while attending mortuary school; however, you may only count 20 hours of apprentice work per week while attending school. The 18 months of apprenticeship must be served in addition to the 18 months of school.
