Continuing Education Credits

Are you working towards a professional designation or need to re-qualify? We have you covered! GOLD Lactation Conference provides you with a variety of educational credits to earn based on the numbers of lectures you attend or watch, the length of the presentation and the topic. This conference offers CERPs, CMEs, CNEs (Contact Hours), Dietetic CPEUs, and Midwifery CEUs (MEAC) credits. Easily keep track of the presentations you view and at the end of the conference, submit your attendance to automatically generate your accreditation certificate(s).

Delegates will be required to watch the entire presentation and complete and submit an evaluation form for each presentation in order to receive their contact hours. Once you've completed viewing the desired presentations, you'll be able to generate the various conference certificates. You are not required to view all conference presentations, however will only receive credits for the presentations that you watch. Below is a break down of the credits we are offering this year.

The GOLD Lactation 2019 Conference will feature 27.5 hours of education for the main conference and 6 hours of education for each of the two add-ons lecture packs (Focus on Foundations & Tools of the Trade). One hour of education is equivalent to 1 continuing education credit. The total number of credits for each accreditation type will be determined by the accreditation provider.
