MILK Continuing Education Opportunities
MILK: An Infant Feeding Conference has an educational focus regarding infant and child feeding and nutrition. As a part of that educational focus, we are excited to announce that most of our sessions have been approved by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) for Continuing Education Recognition Points! The Center for Babywearing Studies has also approved two sessions for CEU’s, as well. These sessions are open to all attendees, but if you want continuing education credit for them, you will need to purchase not only your General Admission ticket but also a $10.00 flat rate “CEU/CERP Option” ticket. One “CEU/CERP Option” ticket must be purchased for each type of continuing education credit you would like to obtain (IBLCE and/or CBWS). Tickets are available for purchase here. The MILK Conference schedule, including information on which sessions are approved for continuing education credits, can be viewed here and here.
IBLCE CERP Process
When you arrive at the conference, please check in at the registration desk and let the staff member checking you in know that you are planning on attending sessions for CERP credit.
You will be asked to sign the attendance sheet for the day and you will need to sign it each day that you plan to attend sessions for CEU’s.
The staff member will confirm that you have a CEU/CERP Option ticket and provide you with a Certificate of Attendance sheet that has all of the IBLCE approved sessions listed.
As you attend each session, please circle the number of CERPs earned.
Once you attend your final CERP session for the conference, please bring the Certificate of Attendance back to the registration desk where we will cross-reference your CERPs to make sure everything is all set. You will be asked to complete a survey. Once the Certificate of Attendance is signed, you will be given the white copy for your records while we will retain the carbon copies for ours.
CBWS CEU Process
When you arrive at the conference, please check in at the registration desk and let the staff member checking you in know that you are planning on attending session for CEU credit.
The staff member will confirm that you have purchased a CEU/CERP Option ticket.
You will need to sign the CBWS attendance sheet at each CEU session you attend. We will send these attendance sheets directly to CBWS as a record of your attendance so that you will receive credit.
After you finish your last CEU session, please return to registration for your Certificate of Attendance. We will not be maintaining copies of your CBWS Certificates of Attendance, so please make sure to keep track of them for your records.
