Refresher Breastfeeding Training Course

The online Refresher Breastfeeding Training Course is specifically designed for those healthcare providers who have done the initial comprehensive training for Baby Friendly requirements and who now need a yearly refresher option. When completed, the course offers 7 credit hours.

Course content is appropriate for all healthcare providers.

The Breastfeeding Training Refresher Course includes access to all exercises and a choice of certified credit. Users have access to the course for 12 months following registration.
