Certified Lactation Counselor Training (CLC)

The Lactation Counselor Training Course is a comprehensive, evidence-based, breastfeeding management course with a strong focus on clinical counseling and assessment skills. Participants build on theoretical foundations to gain practical skills and verify competency as well as optimizing their ability to solve basic and complex clinical breastfeeding issues. This course prepares participants for professional work in the hospital, in public health, and community settings.

At the end of the course, participants who have completed all competencies have the option to sit for the CLC examination, the premier national certification in lactation management for the United States, which is administered by the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice (ALPP).
