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 and used by a number of international NGOs. PPP takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation rates of countries.

The 2020 Fee Schedule for recertfication is available for those IBCLCs recertifying in 2020. IBLCE only accepts payments in USD.

For detailed information regarding the recertification process, review the Recertification Guide.
