Health e-Learning maintains accreditation with various bodies.
Almost all our courses provide CERPs. Please see each course description (under the Courses menu) to see the type and amount of CERPs offered.
CERPs are a continuing education credit for IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants).
CERPs can also be used for ALPP reaccreditation, see below.
CPDs (Midwives and Nurses)
Midwives and Nurses can use this education to collect their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) education hours each year.
Please verify with your specific governing bodies what is required as it may differ from country to country.
You may not need to specify what CPD you did when filling our your annual registration information (you may simply need to acknowledge the hours you have completed), however, if you are randomly selected for auditing, you will likely need to provide your evidence. This evidence should include
- a brief description of the outcomes
- the number of hours spent in each activity
The certificate you receive upon successful completion states the date and number of hours. Aims and Outcomes are listed in the course description on our website.
Please see the board's FAQ for more information.
