For many florists funeral work is an important product. The techniques that have to be acquired for this floral work can also be applied to numerous other arrangements, as in large table arrangements, simple car decorations, and wall and lounge decoration.

This short vocational course is particularly fit for florists and/or floristry personnel who want to take a short practice-oriented (refresher) course. For this professional course, a DFD-professional course certificate or demonstrable knowledge and experience on this level is required. There are two courses, one for level 1 and one for level 2. The contents of these two courses are not identical. You do not need to have taken the professional DFD course, Level 1 of the Funeral work course is enough.
