For a long time there has been a growing frustration at the lack of flexibility and choice within the funeral industry in Australia. Picaluna has grown exponentially over the past six years to address this need to evolve. The passion of Picaluna’s thriving community of Funeral arrangers, celebrants, and grieving families who experience the Picaluna difference, and want others to benefit from this as well, has fuelled Picaluna’s rapid growth across Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and Newcastle.
Picaluna has created its own pathway for training funeral arrangers. The Picaluna Pathway has been designed to efficiently and effectively guide you from induction to conducting funerals, where you could earn up to $1,900 for arranging and conducting a Funeral ceremony, including being a Funeral celebrant. You’ll be caring for families in a holistic way, and being part of the movement to change the way funerals are done for the better.
There are four steps to the Picaluna Pathway for potential Funeral arrangers:
