IBCLC Deadlines

I probably started this a a bit late for those who are thinking of becoming an IBCLC this year, but do not panic, if not this year, next year, or the next...

Wondering if you qualify?

Do you have at least 1,000 hours of breastfeeding counseling hours?  
Do you have at least 45 hours of breastfeeding education?

If you are going for it, you need to know a couple of things to save you some money.  The first deadline approaching if for scholarships.  The MILCC Scholarship application process is open until January 31.  Candidates needing assistance with the exam fee should apply at  The exam fees go up based on when an applicant applies.  The exam is the last Monday in July every year (7/25/2011), but the earlier one registers, the less expensive the test is.  The first deadline is February 28 ($490).  Check out the website for the later deadlines, and to print out an application.

If you are not eligible to sit for the exam in 2011, you are definitely eligible to prepare for next year!  Everyone has a starting point.
Good luck,
