"National Diploma in Funeral Services ..."

Wellington Institute of Technology

www.weltec.ac.nz/schools/funeral/

Starting salary: $28,000-$50,000 No award structure so varies enormously, depending on qualification, experience and employer.

2006 fees: Approximately $8615. (Funeral directing fees over 15 months around $4258; embalming course around $4357)...

The Wellington-based National Diploma in Funeral Services, which is the only one in the country, consists of two certificate courses in embalming and funeral direction.

The course is only partially taught on campus, so applicants need to be currently employed with a funeral service, have had some experience and have an approved, qualified supervisor lined up to assist their workplace learning."

Only 21 jobs nationwide on Jora for "funeral," so the market's a little dead 😉

Isn't $28,000 less than minimum wage? By almost $10,000? Can't really call it a salary if it is for 20 hours a week.

The hours are all over the show too, especially when the family wants to be with the deceased immediately and not want to wait until the morning and/or avoid morgues.

(I used to share a building with a funeral director firm and sell their funeral insurance)
