I am only familiar with one mortuary institute. Here is their website http://ww.simmonsinstitute.com/ Like fun said, it probably varies quite a bit from state to state and prices probably vary from one place to another, but you can take a look at the site anyway and see if you can get any useful information from it.

How much money does a medical assistant make?
ANSWER #4 of 8

You need to find out what your state has for requirements. They are all different. If you check out the site for National Funeral Director's Association (nfda.org) then you can get more details. Some states only require a high school education to get the job.. although I also fear that these same states have looser laws about marrying your first cousin. Most states however, do require a four year degree.. unless you are just there as a grunt, in which you could probably get the job just by applying with interest. There aren't that many people though that want the job if it doesn't pay well, and they are there just to clean-up. The smell alone is enough to demand a raise.

ANSWER #7 of 8

there is such a thing as MORGUE ATTENDANT! Also there is a Mortuary Science school in NYC. The school is called American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Services. I know because I attended and graduated from that school and I am now a funeral director. That school is top in the country and is not easy. But if you do well there, you will pass the NY/NJ Mortuary Law exam as well as both National Boards...THis school ONLY trains you to become a funeral director as do most Mortuary schools.

Do not let the UNCLESAMS talk you out of becoming a morgue attendant or a funeral director. YOu look very young so I am sure you know that you can not attend school or a job looking like that. They are both rewarding jobs.

AS FOR FUNGUY...

I went to school in MANHATTAN, NEW YORK and all that was required was a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA!!! As a matter of fact, AAMI is one of the TOP SCHOOLS IN THE COUNTRY FOR FUNERAL SERVICES! So your statement is WAY OUT OF LINE!

ANSWER #8 of 8

I am a Morgue Assistant / Autopsy Tech. In N.J. In
the USA. I can tell you I have. BS degree in
Forensics. I work for the Chief Medical Examiner Office. I make $38,000.00 a year, and have been employed in this position for 17 years. So, as you can see the
pay isn't gr8. But. I do love this job. My pathologist let's me do all the
eviceration, finger prints, toxicology draws, writeups (cases), photographs,
checking in / out of bodies and all Chain-of-Custody to the police, etc.
This is not a Funeral home job. Just know some anatomy, and the rest you
learn OJT. Look for autopsy tech, morgue attendant, morgue assistant as key phrases
in any net search.
