Do you want to become a lactation consultant or to be able to better help your breastfeeding families? Let Barbara walk you through this process! For more information join us for a Zoom meeting on Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 at 7:00 PM to discuss the process and how our course is part of becoming a lactation professional. Email email@example.com so she can send you a meeting invitation.
A certificate of completion will be provided. We offer a Clinical and Communication Lactation Specialist, CCLS, certificate for those who complete our course. For most, this certificate is considered a stepping-stone towards certification as an IBCLC and we encourage all of our students to apply for the IBLCE certification exam as soon as they are eligible. Nurses, doulas, dieticians, OTs, PTs, midwives and other health care providers may find this credential be helpful in their work and in finding employment.
This 90-hour course is comprehensive and designed to cover most aspects of the IBLCE Exam Blueprint. This will help you not only be prepared to offer mothers and babies quality breastfeeding support but will also help you to prepare for the IBLCE exam. At this point and time all of our attendees have passed the IBCLC exam!
The course is offered in two parts. You may take each part separately or as one comprehensive course. In order to take Part 2, you must have taken another 45-hour professional lactation course within the past three years.
