I started Knotty Oak Cremation Certification in 2015 to simplify the process of earning a Crematory Operator Certification.  After receiving my certification in a classroom setting and having to travel several hours to the nearest location, I wanted to make the process easier for other busy individuals.  With over 10 years of funeral industry experience I have personally and statisticly seen a dramatic increase in cremation rates, resulting in a need for more certified crematory operators.  It is now my goal to educate individuals for a rewarding profession as a crematory operator in a manner that saves each operator time and money.
