If you were approved for but unable to sit the 2020 IBCLC examination, please note that the deadline to request a deferral to an examination in 2021 through IBLCE’s extraordinary circumstances policy is coming up soon. Thank you noting that the deadline to request a deferral is October 30, 2020.
We understand that this is a challenging time for many. IBLCE’s extraordinary circumstances policy includes COVID-19 related concerns, such as: job loss of the candidate and/or partner/spouse, COVID-19 health issue for candidate or immediate family member, and/or concern for going into the public due to COVID-19.
Contact the IBLCE location that serves you to learn more and start the process.
For recertifying candidates: To defer to an examination in 2021 and receive a one-year certification extension, you will please need to submit 15 L-CERPs with your deferral request by October 30, 2020.
