The Breastfeeding University, home to Carolina Global Breastfeeding Institute’s Online Classroom, offers evidence-based, up-to-date education in an interactive and user-friendly format. Developed by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, lactation consultants, public health professionals, educators and La Leche League leaders, these trainings will help learners to establish a working knowledge of the importance of breastfeeding and how to support mothers and families to meet their breastfeeding goals.
Learners may work in a variety of classrooms. To date, there are three classrooms: Healthcare Settings, Childcare Settings: Early Care and Education Providers, and Childcare Settings: Trainers of Early Care and Education Providers. Each module is designed to take 30-minutes. However, the modules include optional opportunities to learn even more, which may take additional time. Preview a module today! (coming soon).
Enrolling in each classroom provides access to all associated modules and continuing education certificates. Certificates may be printed to verify completion of a single module or cumulatively to show all completed modules. There is a one-time registration fee for full access to each classroom.
