Lactation Counselor Training Course Now Available Online

participants can take the LCTC onlineDue to the developing health pandemic surrounding the Coronavirus, we have decided to create an online Lactation Counselor Training Course. This is a new and challenging experience for all of us and while we still strongly believe that the experience of being together for the LCTC course has provided wonderful opportunities for meeting new friends and colleagues and networking, the changing times have propelled us to revisit the course delivery options.

Crisis affords opportunity and since the in-person training postponements began, we worked non-stop to put the LCTC online. We are pleased to let you know that we are now offering the Lactation Counselor Training Course completely online! This self-paced online course is presented in an engaging and energetic format and we are sure you will find it both informative and fulfilling. It consists of videos, self-check questions and competency verification. For these initial months, go-to-meeting office hours will be available with faculty weekly to answer additional questions for online participants. The course should take 52 hours to complete (just like the in-person version), but you have up to 6 months to complete it. You can stop and start throughout the course.

A remotely-proctored CLC© exam is now available. The exam lasts up to three hours and will require internet access and a computer with a functioning video camera/webcam and audio.
