This program is distinct and separate from the CLE® (Certified Lactation Educator™) program. While both the LE(C) and the CLE® provide families with support and education, the LE(C) is not qualified to lead group classes or facilitate a breastfeeding class. They are trained breastfeeding professionals that offer breastfeeding support and education. The LE(C) also does not offer medical advice or provide lactation consulting or breastfeeding assessment. The LE(C) does receive extensive training in proper referral for families needing breastfeeding intervention.
This course is no longer offered in the State of Georgia (US).
This course is designed for CAPPA members who wish to become a CAPPA-certified LE(C) or Community Lactation Educator, and have attended an in-person training with a CAPPA Faculty Instructor.
Students purchasing this course will be registered to CAPPA Academy — an online learning platform — where they will gain access to the details and forms necessary for completing the Course Requirements.
