The two pathways in which you can utilize the GOLD Lactation Academy 90-Hour Online Course are Pathway 1 and Pathway 3. Pathway 2 includes this type of instruction through the college or university program, so those following Pathway 2 would not require a program like GOLD Lactation Academy as part of their candidacy to sit for the IBLCE exam. If you have determined that you are a Pathway 1 or Pathway 3 candidate (and confirmed with IBLCE), your choice to enroll and complete the GOLD Lactation Academy 90-Hour Online Course will be an excellent first step in your process.
This course will be a strong part of exam preparation. However, you will still need to have all other requirements met before you can sit for the exam.
This program is not a certification course, but it will qualify for your mandatory lactation education hours. You will still need to complete the other requirements and pass the exam before you are certified as a lactation consultant
IBLCE offers 3 different pathways to becoming a lactation consultant. You may already have some training to help determine which pathway is right for you. Pathway 1 is for those who may be working in a clinical setting or breastfeeding support organizations. You can find more information about the recognized health professions here: https://iblce.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/recognised-health-professions.pdf
Pathway 2 is through an academic program and Pathway 3 is for those individuals who do not work under the recognized health professionals and will be using a qualified mentor for clinical hours. You can learn more about the different pathways and find which pathway is right for you here: https://iblce.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Which-IBLCE-Pathway-is-Right-for-Me.pdfIf you have any additional questions or comments, please contact us via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
