The following is a testimonial from a LER Continuing Education student:

"I am taking another Continuing Ed course on the internet, for my lactation CERPs. At this point I have enough for the the recertification by CERPs. I just want you to know that it does not compare at all to yours. Yours was excellent, easy to understand, and the videos and YouTube presentations made it come alive. So keep up the good work, and when I need more CERPs I will definitely come your way." - Jane Squires
