Recertifying by exam or CERPs, we've got you covered!

As an IBCLC, you will need to recertify every 5 years. At your first 5-year mark, you can choose to recertify either by CERPs or by exam. At your second 5-year mark, you must recertify by exam. Recertification continues in this manner, alternating by CERPs and exam, every 5 years. For more detailed information, see the IBLCE's Recertification Guide.
