Our Courses

Our ASI Education Program is designed with the specific lactation education eligibility criteria required to take the Certified Lactation Consultants ® exam (IBCLC), certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE). Students gain a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the breastfeeding infant in relation to human lactation.

The curriculum is designed using evidence-based best practices. This education is essential for any individual or health professional working with new families and their newborns, or as part of the initial process to become a Lactation Specialist. All content is based on current scientific research, enabling participants to provide accurate, up-to-date, and consistent information on human lactation from birth through the weaning process.

How to Become a Certified Lactation Specialist

Certified lactation specialists educate and support breastfeeding families during pregnancy, the initiation of breastfeeding or chestfeeding, the normal course of breastfeeding or chestfeeding, and through weaning. ASI provides you with the training and support you need to complete one or both of our online certifications at your own pace.
