Title: ‘Earn more as embalmer’
Post by: Scott on January 10, 2008, 05:02:00 PM
MORE and more Filipino women, like those working as care-givers, are showing interest in becoming embalmers or professional morticians, an industry official said.

Philippine Embalmers and Morticians Association (Pema) president Sarah Dychangco said women, especially those that have taken care-giving courses, are now venturing into the funeral services industry to become embalmers as they foresee a huge demand for this type of job abroad.

“A lot of embalmers abroad are nearing age retirement and so the demand is so huge. Now, you see caregivers wanting to become embalmers because of the hefty salary,” Dychangco said, who is also president of the Pacific Center for Advanced Studies (PCAS).

In an interview with reporters, she said that in order to gain competitive advantage as professional embalmers, more women, even those outside of Cebu, have started to take advanced studies on embalming at PCAS, the first formal embalming and mortuary training school in the Asia Pacific.

PCAS is found at Nivel Hills, Cebu City.

Great chances

Dychangco said the good reputation of Filipinos as world-class caregivers is something that the country can capitalize on as embalming has become an extended service in the global care-giving industry.

“Caregivers abroad, who have embalming skills, have greater chances of (getting a) huge income as this kind of service pays higher than the basic care giving,” she said.

Jeffrey Chancellor, Cosmopolitan Funeral Homes Inc. (CFHI) consultant and PCAS chairman, earlier said that an average embalmer or mortician abroad earns more than $30,000 annually or roughly P1.2 million based on the current foreign exchange rate.

Apart from the Philippines, demand for professional embalmers is seen in the United States (US), Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Chancellor said the US government recently opened employment opportunities for this profession, through a guest worker program as the demand for skilled embalmers has risen to 50,000.

Last year, Canada also announced it needed to hire 200 professional embalmers, he said.

However, Philippine Mortuary Association president Renato Dychangco Jr. earlier pointed out that while the mortuary industry is a “sunrise industry,” he understands the call to “change its image” if it wants to lure more people to become professional embalmers, especially since it is a misconstrued profession in the Philippines.

He said there is a need to professionalize the funeral services industry by upgrading the standard of death care services. (MMM)

This is just basically a glorified press release, since the Dychangcos own PCAS.

I hope they don't read this, or I'm dead.

land of milk and honey ko scott, down south pero ibabaw sa florida

ok btaw siguro ni nga mag embalmer sa US or Canada, coz funeral directors (and even ordinary embalmers) make good money

but as far as I know, in the US, one need's 2 yrs of school before maka kuha license,

I just don't know if they honor Philippine education though

murag wala pa man siguro equivalency in place right now

With regards to that European backpacking panganduy, I suggest mo lansar ka sa ato pagka politiko.

Our politicians are accomplished globe-trotters, and the best thing about it is: they don't have to shell out a dime. They make other people pay for it.

Nindot btaw pud ang weather sa Florida, save for the fact that it gets too hot in the summer (must be what hell feels like), and of course, that they get hit by hurricanes once in a while.

Average salary of an embalmer here in the United States is roughly around $45,000-$50,000
The average salary of a Registered Nurse here in the United States can range anywhere between $70,000- $100,000+
(overtime is an option).

As of right now, the United States is in need of at least 2 million nurses.

There is no immediate 'decrease' in the need of medical professionals (nursing, medicine, pt, pharmacy).
The contrary proves otherwise.

Sa Cebu, Usa na lang ka lungsod wala nako maadtui. Aloguinsan.

I love the South of Cebu the most. Very distinct iyang character. With old churches, beautiful beaches, marine sanctuaries, islets, delicacies, sunset, old houses, waterfalls, vegetable plantation and Cebu's highest peak.
