During November of 2014 ROSE hosted a Master Trainer Workshop: A Comprehensive Exam Preparation and Breastfeeding Training Course led by Linda J. Smith MPH, FACCE, IBCLC of Bright Future Lactation Resource Centre Ltd. Our participants traveled into Atlanta from Washington, Missouri, New York, Boston, D.C, Delaware, Florida, and of course Georgia. This workshop was designed to equip our Master Trainers with the skills and resources needed to lead their own exam prep courses in their communities for individuals seeking to become IBCLC’s. In order to attend this workshop, our trainers made a few commitments to ROSE with the key promise to lead 2 free lactation management education courses for a minimum of 20 individuals of color over the next 2 years (2015 & 2016).

Attending A 45hr Prep Course
In order to attend a training led by a ROSE Master Trainer, there are a few items to consider:
- Are you familiar with the requirements for IBCLE certification and exam?
- Are you currently on a pathway to meeting IBCLE requirements?
- Are you preparing to take the exam in 2017 or 2018?
- Do you self-identify as a person of color?
If you answered “YES” to ALL of the above, we would LOVE to have you at our September 2017 IBCLC Preparation Course. Please check back for updates!
If becoming an IBCLC is not currently your area of interest, but you want to support breastfeeding families in your community. We encourage you to consider our ROSE Community Transformer Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Training program.
