To become a mortuary technician, you would require a degree in funeral science and a three year internship. Most morgues may require specific certificates and you must also have taken and passed a national board examination. A mortuary technician’s job requires him/her to always be on call, and he/she has to be considerate of the deceased and his/her family.
