Canaan Valley Resort
The course is intended for professional and volunteer health care workers, such as nurses, midwives, physicians, dietitians, nutritionists, WIC staff, breastfeeding peer counselors, mother-to-mother counselors, childbirth educators, doulas, speech and occupational therapists, child welfare workers, etc. While professional and personal experiences with breastfeeding are of benefit to learners, there are no pre-requisite requirements for this program, other than a sincere desire to learn about breastfeeding and help others.
There are 50 slots available for this training. The goal of the WVBA and our sponsors for this training is to increase the number of certified lactation support professionals in the state. Therefore, preference will be given to in-state individuals who work with nursing women, particularly in underserved areas.
FEES: Registration for this national course is typically $625 per person, plus $120 exam fee, and travel to out-of-state locations. Thanks to funding from the WVDHHR Office of Nutrition Services and Office of Maternal Child Health, we are able to bring this training to WV with a significantly reduced registration rate of $185.00. Continuing education credits, exam fee, and daily breakfast, lunch and refreshments are included in the registration fee. Lodging is NOT included.
Breakfast, breaks and lunch are included in the registration fee. Participants are responsible for their travel, lodging, dinner and the required course book.
