Features of Our Online Learning Programs

  • Available within 10 minutes of purchase: Just login to our website and click on the pink My Account tab, top right, to access your program.
  • Stop & start at your leisure: Most of the video programs actually remember where you were in the video, all of them can be paused, fast-forwarded, and re-wound.
  • No waiting for test results: Score your test at any time to see how you have done. Some tests have short delays between scoring to allow you to review the program to find the correct answers. The program will bring you back to your incorrect test answers until you have correctly answered all questions on the test.
  • Electronic copy of certificate: For emailing or attaching to submissions to accrediting organizations. You may also print your certificates, if you wish.

Individual Programs

Offering CERPs and contact hours, individual programs cover a large range of topics from mastitis to infant massage. Click here to see all topics available.


If you need 15 or more CERPs, you may want to consider a CERP Bundle. Our Bundles contain multiple online learning programs combined in one Bundle for your convenience and at a special discounted price. Individual programs in our 75-CERP Bundle may be exchanged as necessary, free of charge, to meet the requirements of your Personalized Professional Development Plan from the IBLCE, as long as we have the programs in the CERP quantities and disciplines they require. Click here to see all of our CERP Bundles.

How do I get the right programs to meet the requirements of my Personalized Professional Development Plan (PPDP)

In the store descriptions of our bundles, we have noted the disciplines for each individual online program and for each program within a CERP Bundle. We also have store categories for each discipline so you may select your course(s) by discipline. Individual programs in our 75-CERP Bundle may be exchanged as necessary to meet the requirements of your Personalized Professional Development Plan.

To exchange any program in your 75-CERP Bundle:

  • Email us at
  • Include an electronic copy, screenshot, or picture of the section of your PDPP where it details the disciplines and credits that are required.
  • It is best to exchange programs that you have not yet completed. However, if you must exchange a course that has been completed, we will delete those credits from your account. You are essentially exchanging the completed credits for new credits in the discipline(s) that you require.
  • Identify which of the programs in your 75-CERP Bundle you want to exchange and, if you know, you can tell us what programs you want to replace them. If you don't know, we will choose courses in the discipline(s) and credits(s) needed to fulfill your PDPP requirements. We will also ensure that your bundle still has the full 75 CERPs.
  • We will complete the exchange within 10 working days and notify you by email when the exchange is complete.
