(a) A person may not engage in the practice of mortuary science or hold out as being engaged in the practice unless licensed as an embalmer or funeral director by the department. A person holding a license as a funeral director may not embalm or restore a dead human body, take charge of the remains of a person dead of a communicable disease, or prepare for transportation by common carrier a human body dead of a communicable disease.
(c) In the event the dead body is to be disposed of in a manner not requiring embalming, the department may issue a permit to an unlicensed person for the care and disposition of dead human bodies for compensation. This permit otherwise in no way licenses the holder to practice mortuary science.
