Before starting the Funeral Service Assistant Certificate Program at NOCE in Fall 2017, Conrad Hoernke worked as a quality inspector for aerospace and defense.  A desire to help people by providing comfort and guidance to loved ones during life's hardest moments drew Hoernke to the NOCE program. Hoernke plans to complete the NOCE short-term training program in June 2018, transition to Cypress' associate degree program, and then enter the college's new pilot baccalaureate program. This noncredit certificate gives Hoernke the opportunity to develop entry-level job skills and even start a job in the funeral services sector while continuing his education. His career plan is to work in all aspects of funeral services, including customer relations, operations, embalming, and eventually, becoming a funeral director.
