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. We currently offer CERP, CME, CNE (Contact Hours), Dietetic CPEU, Midwifery CEU (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. Upon completion of this activity, GOLD delegates will be able to download an educational credit for this talk. Below is a break down of the credits we are offering this year.
