Congratulations on your decision to invest in lactation education. The 24 didactic hour CLE® course fulfills the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI), US Core Competencies, doula breastfeeding education requirements, WIC Peer Counselor training, and awards 21.25 L-Cerps from IBLCE. It is the prerequisite to enroll in CAPPA Academy, the online certification course designed to instruct and guide students through the process of becoming a Certified Lactation Educator™. Additional coursework and investment required for certification.
CAPPA CLE®s secure employment teaching breastfeeding classes in hospitals, clinics, community programs and private settings. Many find employment as WIC peer counselors. They can also facilitate breastfeeding and support groups or work as breast pump rental technicians and in breastfeeding supply stores. The opportunities are endless! Many professionals use this certification to round out their NCS or labor and postpartum doula services to ensure they are providing the highest quality services for breastfeeding support. Several CLE®s use this credential as a stepping stone to achieve the IBCLC Certification.
