Step 2: Recertification Fees & Key Dates

Recertification Application Fees

In order to make its certification financially accessible to all those qualified to participate, despite the wide variance in economic conditions throughout the world, IBLCE uses the purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita metric as determined by international organisations such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. PPP takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation rates of countries. Click here for the 2018 Fee Schedule for Recertification. IBLCE only accepts payments in USD.
