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 and used by a number of international NGOs. PPP takes into account the relative cost of living, the exchange rate and the inflation rates of countries.
The 2022 Fee Schedule for recertification is available in the Recertification Guide for those IBCLCs recertifying in 2022. IBLCE only accepts payments in USD.
For detailed information regarding the recertification process, review the Recertification Guide.
