5/5

“I received my score a few days ago and wanted to let you know that I got 91%. I credit your materials…for making this possible.

Though I found all your material helpful, the Picture Perfect workbook [Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos] was tremendous. I feel that working through that alongside The Atlas really helped me extract so much more knowledge than I would have gotten just studying The Atlas alone. I began reaping the benefits even before the exam, as I worked with moms.

Thank you all, again, for the amazing support and quality exam prep materials.”

FAQs

Of course! Click here to see the course goals, objectives, and other important course information. 

It’s both! If you purchase the full course you can use it as a study tool for the photo portion of the IBLCE exam AND use it to earn CERPs. It is important to note, however, you do not HAVE to purchase the full course. Marie Biancuzzo’s Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos Workbook and The Breastfeeding Atlas (6th ed) can be used as an exam study tool together. If you would like to earn CERPs and/or contact hours after you have passed the exam (and completed all the exercises in the workbook) then you can do so by either purchasing the full course up front (and waiting to take the post-test until after you pass the exam) or by purchasing the post-test a la carte when you are ready to earn your continuing education credits.  

Yes! We have several lactation exam review packages (many of which contain the Decoding Lactation Photos workbook and Atlas) on our sister site, Breastfeeding Outlook. If you would like to look at those packages, please click here.  

Yes. Upon completion of the post-test and workbook activities you will earn 20.4 contact hours and 20.4 L-CERPs.

No. Marie Biancuzzo’s Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos Workbook was designed to use with The Breastfeeding Atlas (6th ed) and cannot be used on its own as a study tool. All photos referenced in the workbook are found in The Atlas.  

No problem. If you already own The Breastfeeding Atlas you can just purchase Marie Biancuzzo’s Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos and the post-test questions (if you desire) a la carte. Click here to purchase.  

Unfortunately, no. Marie Biancuzzo’s Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos Workbook was designed specifically for the 6th Edition of The Breastfeeding Atlas. It makes reference to photos, figures, chapters, and pages numbers that will not be accurate if you have a different edition of The Atlas.  

You will have access to the program for two years from the date of purchase. You must complete all work during this time and successfully pass the post-test with an 80% or higher to earn credit for the course. For example, if you purchase the course on June 1, 2019, the course will expire on June 1, 2021.
