Law Review Classes

Each month, MFDEA provides a review class designed to help prepare prospective funeral directors for the Missouri Funeral Service Law Exam Test. This Law Test covers funeral directing laws, licensing, embalming, preneed sales, OSHA requirements and FTC rules.

Participants who are not currently licensed also receive a free one-year student membership in the MFDEA.

Over the past three years, the Law Exam Review class has been extremely popular and successful with participants in the class having a much higher passing rate on the Law Exam than non-participants.  In addition, should you take the class and fail to pass the state law exam, you can retake the review class free of charge as many times as you wish.

  • Classes are usually held the third Wednesday of each month. Call the MFDEA office at 573.635.1661 to make your class reservation.
  • A minimum of 3 students must be met by the Friday morning before the Wednesday class in order for the class to be held. You will be notified if the class will be canceled.
  • Please register at least one week prior to the scheduled class.
  • Cost for the class is $149.00 paid in advance. The fee includes lunch and course materials.
  • MFDEA Members who are licensed funeral directors or embalmers may take the class as a refresher course for only $50.00, paid in advance.
  • All law classes begin at 9:00 am and finish at approximately 5:00 pm.

Comments from our Members
"Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate MFDEA, the review class and the study guide. I received my license in the mail today and passed the test on the first try. I also appreciate your staff's [help with my] questions and calls I made prior to the exam. . . . Thank you again for your time and patience. Your class was such a help."

"I want to post a great big THANK YOU to Don Otto for being such a wonderful advocate for funeral directors and funeral homes in Missouri! Thank you so much for all you do to help our profession. You helped me tremendously years ago when I acquired my licenses and still to this day, assist us and our small town funeral home. Missouri funeral homes are blessed to have you and The Missouri Funeral Directors & Embalmers Association!
