F.S. 497.376
497.376 License as funeral director and embalmer permitted.
(1) This chapter does not prohibit a person from holding a license as an embalmer and a license as a funeral director at the same time. There may be issued and renewed by the licensing authority a combination license as both funeral director and embalmer to persons meeting the separate requirements for both licenses as set forth in this chapter. The licensing authority may adopt rules providing procedures for applying for and renewing such combination license. The licensing authority may by rule establish application, renewal, and other fees for such combination license, which fees may not exceed the sum of the maximum fees for the separate funeral director and embalmer license categories as provided in this chapter. A person holding a combination license as a funeral director and an embalmer is subject to regulation under this chapter both as a funeral director and an embalmer.
(2) Except as provided in s. 497.377, an applicant for a combination license as both a funeral director and an embalmer must hold the educational credentials required for licensure of a funeral director under s. 497.373(1)(d).
