CERP Providers


Education providers who want their educational activities recognised as continuing education suitable for International Board Certified Lactation Consultants® (IBCLC®) may apply to become a CERP Provider. Individuals, independent educators, hospitals, academic institutions and professional associations are among the types of entities that can become CERP Providers.



Short Term Providers (STPs) must submit each educational activity to IBLCE for consideration and may not assign CERPs to their education. IBLCE has the sole authority to review and assign CERPs to education provided by STPs. STP status is valid for 1 year.
