Lactation Counselor Training Course and CLC Exam Eligibility

The Lactation Counselor Training Course is a comprehensive, evidence-based, college level, breastfeeding management course that includes practical skills, theoretical foundations and competency verification. Basic and complex technical issues are explored within the context of problem solving and counseling strategies. This course prepares participants for professional work in the hospital and in public health and community settings. It trains participants in how to gain insight into clients’ problems with a strong focus on counseling skills. At the end of the course, participants who have completed all competencies may sit for the CLC® examination, the premier national certification in lactation management for the United States, which is administered by the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice (ALPP).

Online Lactation Counselor Training Course

Due to the developing health pandemic surrounding the coronavirus, we have created an online Lactation Counselor Training Course. 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, virtual 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.

Loved being able to participate in this online course. Was much more convenient for my work schedule, as I did not have to take a week off of work to attend the course in person.

All the instructors were absolutely amazing!
