Knoxville, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2014 -- LegacyStories.org, and Tom Cormier, CEO, is pleased to announce that the firm has created an eleven-module on-line training course suitable for funeral homes and planning consultants associated with the industry. The release of the Certified Legacy Planner (CLP) training course (www.legacystories.org/training-for-funeral-homes) fills a long-time need for creating a library of information to pass on the heirs and beneficiaries. The portfolio includes recordings, documents artifacts and life lessons.
According to Dennis Stack, Co-founder of LegacyStories.org, “A two-fold problem exists when Baby Boomers begin to consider priorities for planning a legacy. Not all individuals are aware of the cache of information that is being depleted each day, as the previous generation passes on without any comprehensive capture of its life lessons. The second issue arises when families recognize the need, but do not know where to turn to define the legacy elements and capture them for future generations.”
Adding to the resources available for families in the pre-need stage of planning makes the funeral home professionals better able to serve the needs of their clients. When questioned about priorities, more than 8 of 10 of the post-World War II generation and nearly 75 percent of their parents considered stories about families, values and their life lessons to be of high importance. Personal possessions also came in at a much higher priority than financial bequests.
Tom Cormier, President and CEO of LegacyStories.org adds to the discussion, “Funeral planning personnel are in a unique position to help families put together legacy portfolios. The training offered by our program enables many legacies to be saved that would otherwise be lost to future generations.”
In addition to the basic modules in the Certified Legacy Planner course, an optional support module is included. The content covers legacy planning services and marketing elements. Future funeral clients can be acquired through making legacy services available through estate planners, assisted living communities, hospices and the general public.
