UPDATE as of July 26, 2021: Certificates Update

Congratulations to new IBCLCs as well as those who recertified! After delays associated with the logistics of providing mailed certificates during a pandemic, preparations are underway to send the certificates and ID cards first to candidates who became certified or recertified in 2020.  We apologize for the delay due to these extraordinary circumstances.

IBLCE is preparing to send the 2020 certificates post in late August.

April/May 2021 IBCLC examination candidates received an email with instructions to access their scores in their online credential management system on July 23, 2021. April/May 2021 certificates will be sent in the coming months, following the completion of the mailing of the 2020 certificates.  Thank you for your patience, we know you are very proud of your tremendous accomplishment and we are working diligently to disseminate certificates in the order in which they were earned.

While the preparation for certificates is still in progress, IBLCE provides a variety of certification verification options. As we have done for IBCLCs in 2020, these options will be available to new and recertifying IBCLCs in 2021.

As a reminder, the following are certification verification options:

  1. Logging in to your online account in the credential management system and following these steps to find your certification status.

  2. Submitting a Certification Verification Request to the IBLCE location that serves you. You will need to submit the request on behalf of your employer or whomever else requires the verification.

  3. Checking the IBLCE online registry to verify an IBCLC certification status. The registry will be updated with the results of the April/May 2021 examination by the end of August or early September.

  4. Contacting your IBLCE location for a letter verifying your IBCLC certification status that can be provided to third parties.

If you have any questions specific to your situation, please reach out to the IBLCE location that serves you.

Congratulations on your accomplishment!
