Why Online?


Some have asked why Lactation Education Resources offers courses exclusively through an online platform, as opposed to providing lactation instruction in a traditional classroom setting. Below are just a few of the many benefits our online programs offer students.

  • You can begin at any time.
  • You can study at your own pace when it is convenient for you.
  • You have access to world class instructors whom you would not be able to hear at an in-person venue.
  • Online offers opportunities to enrich your learning experience by linking to various websites, online videos and commentaries.
  • If you don’t understand something an instructor says, you can rewind and listen again.
  • You have access to your lessons for a full year and can go back to review lessons that were more challenging for you.
  • You can review the lessons you choose just prior to the IBLCE exam. If you need more time to complete the course or prepare for the exam just ask. A one year extension of access is only $75.
