The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) has granted the nationally-recognized Certified Preplanning Consultant (CPC) designation to John G Ligda in Evergreen Park, Illinois. The CPC certification program is considered the standard of excellence in funeral service for individuals who help families plan funerals, memorial services and other life tribute events in advance.
NFDA’s Certified Preplanning Consultant program, established in 1997, recognizes qualified, knowledgeable individuals who are committed to provide ethical and caring advance planning services for all families. “Those who have earned the CPC designation have achieved a unique career distinction that is highly valued by families that want to plan meaningful funerals in advance,” according to Carmella Hansen, NFDA’s director of education.
In order to become a Certified Preplanning Consultant, candidates must meet specific program requirements and pass an examination based on a standards manual. CPCs must demonstrate their ongoing professional commitment by fulfilling specific requirements as they renew their certification every four years
