Enrolment & Policies


IFDC Academic Appeals Policy


To enrol for a course, please contact the College Administrator.

The College will issue a training confirmation letter and invoice for training.

Payment must be received prior to the training commencing.

All learners should be employed, either full-time or part-time, in the Funeral sector or in some cases, and for limited units, be engaged in a work experience placement with a Funeral Director

We will from time to time consider applications from learners who are not employed within the sector for H&S and Foundation Units only. The final decision will be made by the Governors.


In order to deliver good training and robust assessment and verification the following process is rigorously adhered to.
Following completion of your portfolio your assessor will arrange a date to visit you for your work based assessment (excluding H&S units)

Your Assessor will then finalise marking your portfolio and send it to our internal verifier (IV) who will check the assessment decisions.

If the IV is satisfied the portfolio will then be sent to the Director of Education to await our next scheduled external verification day. These happen only twice a year.

Following a satisfactory EV visit certificates are produced usually around 6 to 10 weeks later.  You should note that the process from assessment to certification may take several months.
