This two-hour course, which will be presented by OFDA General Counsel T. Scott Gilligan, consists of an in-depth examination of Ohio’s cremation laws and regulations. The eight-part analysis covers the legal aspects of licensing, right of disposition, requirements of the cremation authorization, crematory procedures and restrictions, cremation of donated bodies and body parts, disposition of cremated remains, crematory recordkeeping responsibilities, and statutory immunity for funeral homes and crematories. All attendees will be provided a copy of the comprehensive Ohio Cremation Law Manual which covers each of the topics being discussed at the workshop.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Only one registrant per registration is permitted (must have an individual email address). Please note that credit (if available) is only provided to registered attendees participating at their own computer and phone using their confirmation login information.

The Crematory Operator Refresher Course consists of two courses, Crematory Laws and Rules and Best Practices for Crematory Operators. You will need to complete both courses to fulfill the requirements to recertify your Crematory Operator Permit. The four-hour course expires five years from the date of completion as stated in OAC 4717-15-07.

Please Note: The Ohio Crematory Laws and Rules portion is required to be completed per compliance period.
