IBLCE list of recognized licensed health care professionals:
College/University Courses and Continuing Education Courses
If you are NOT one of the above mentioned licensed/registered health care professionals, you also need to complete eight college courses of at least one semester each. You may have already taken some or all of these prior to working on becoming a lactation consultant. If so, then make sure you have your transcripts to send to the IBLCE. Regardless of how long ago you took those courses, they are still valid.
Required College/University Courses
Infant and Child Growth and Development
Psychology or Counseling or Communication Skills
Introduction to Research
Sociology or Cultural Sensitivity or Cultural Anthropology
Basic life support (for example, CPR)
Occupational safety and security for health professionals
Professional ethics for health professionals
Universal safety precautions and infection control
* It is important that you double check all these requirements with the IBLCE website as changes do occur. What we have listed here is meant as a guideline and not a exhaustive list.
