All Continuing Education Recognition Points (CERPs) Providers are expected to adhere to the IBLCE Minimising Commercial Influence on Education Policy and accompanying FAQs.
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. Education recognised for CERPs may be provided by an individual or organisation through seminars, conferences, workshops, independent study modules, distance learning or other educational means. Education eligible for CERPs must cover subjects found on the IBCLC Detailed Content Outline.
SHORT TERM 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.
Providers must submit their application completely online. Please visit the 2018 Tier Information Chart to identify your payment category.
