Textbook Editions

Editions - In April of each year, the American Board of Funeral Service Education releases updated instructional outlines and glossaries for selected funeral service topics of instruction.  We then integrate the new material into our textbooks and publish a new edition in early May of the same year.  Based on the ABFSE schedule, new editions for any one textbook are released approximately every 4 or 5 years.

Desk copies of new editions are automatically sent to program directors that have previously adopted those books for their program.  We also release an updated PPT Presentations Program with any new textbook edition.
