Online Course Header

This 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. Learners may choose from AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM, L-CERPS, AAFP Prescribed Credit, Virginia Nurses Association contact hours, CPE dietitian credits or a Certification of Participation.

Coursework is self-paced. The system remembers where you stop in an exercise and returns to that place when you next log on. The Course Home Page provides a status reminder next to each exercise to alert you to your status for that exercise. Completed exercises can be reviewed as often as desired. Each exercise is followed by a brief course evaluation with an opportunity for user feedback. Please note: Currently, the evaluation form must be completed at the completion of each exercise. We understand that this is an inconvenience but this is necessary for accrediting purposes and we thank you for your understanding. Course content is appropriate for all healthcare providers.

Within each exercise, content is presented in an easily read format with no scrolling. Beautiful imagery draws the reader in. Navigation arrows on the bottom of each page allow for easy back and forth movement within an exercise. The page counters at the top left of the content page provide a visual guide to content completion. Clicking the Exit Exercise link at the top right closes the exercise window and returns the user to the Course Home Page.

The Breastfeeding Training Refresher Course is $59 and includes access to all exercises and a choice of certified credit. Users have access to the course for 12 months following registration.  An Institutional Package with volume discounts is available for organizations with greater staff training needs.
