How to Use IBLCE’s Online Systems

The IBLCE online credential management system is a web‐based, secure database provided by Clarus/Brightlink.

The IBLCE online credential management system can be used to:

  • Find your identification number, certification status, and IBCLC expiration date
  • Apply to sit the IBCLC examination and to view your examination results
  • Apply to recertify by Continuing Education Recognition Points (CERPs)

You can find the login page to IBLCE’s credential management system here. You can also click the “Login” link at the top left of IBLCE’s website.

For the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome on a computer, instead of a mobile device.

IBLCE’s credential management system is currently available in English, German, and Spanish. We look forward to making it available in all IBLCE languages in the future.

Accessing Your Account

If you are an IBCLC, have taken the IBCLC examination, or have previously registered, you already have an account. Please do not create a new account!

You can find the login page to IBLCE’s credential management system here.

How do I find my username?

Your username is your primary email that you have registered in our system. This is the email that you provided when you applied for the IBCLC examination and the email where you receive IBLCE communications.

If you are not sure what email you used, or if you know your email has changed since your last login, please contact your IBLCE regional location.

I am an IBCLC or sat the IBCLC examination, but I have never logged into my account. How do I log in?

If you have never accessed your account before, you will need to reset your password the first time you try to log in.

Go to IBLCE’s online credential management system and click “Reset Password.”

Next, enter your primary email and click “Reset Password.”

You should receive an account recovery link to change your password. You may need to copy the link from the account recovery email and paste it into your browser.

The link will take you to a page where you can reset your password by entering it twice, then clicking “Change Password and Login.”

If you have issues accessing your account, please contact the IBLCE location that serves you.

I do not have an account. How can I create one?

If you are an IBCLC or have registered for an IBCLC examination, you have an account – even if you have never logged in. Please see above to learn more about how to access your account.

If you don’t have an account, you can create one by going to the login page here, clicking “Create New Profile” and answering the questions to complete your profile. You can watch a video of this process here.
