Certified Lactation Specialist Course (CLSC)

10/09/2017
10/12/2017
US/Eastern

The Certified Lactation Specialist Course is designed for the aspiring lactation consultant or nurses, physicians, midwives,

dieticians, breastfeeding assistants or others desirous of improving their knowledge base and skills in working with the breastfeeding dyad. All areas included on the IBLCE exam are addressed. The 5 day course provides half the needed number of continuing education hours in lactation to qualify to sit for the IBLCE exam. The other half can be obtained through LEC’s home study courses, or attending other conferences. Lactation management skills are taught through practical application of scientific principles. The course is continuously updated in response to changes within the profession and the rapidly expanding body of scientific knowledge. Certification as a lactation specialist is achieved through attendance at the entire course, completion of assigned homework and readings during the course, and passing the of the end of course exam on the last day.

It includes information and discussion specific to the practice of lactation consulting. This would include documentation, developing private, hospital, clinic, or public health practices, review of the Standards of Practice as delineated by the professional association and ethical issues. Emphasis is placed on preparing you for practice as an IBCLC with a concentration of practical aspects of lactation management. It also covers how to obtain clinical experience, and gives you specifics on how to prepare to take the IBLCE exam as well as the exam at the end of the CLS course itself. The information will be valuable, even if you aren't sure you want to go "all the way" to becoming an IBCLC.

This certification is a stepping stone to the IBCLC credential. It is hoped that those who attend this course ultimately go on to become board certified, although that is not a requirement. During this very practical course, participants will be taught how to use appropriate counseling skills, how to teach mothers and families, and most importantly, how to function hands-on as a clinician.
