Marie Biancuzzo Pairs Courses to Help Lactation Test-Takers Prepare for New 2010 IBLCE Exam Format

Breastfeeding Outlook, the nation's premier lactation education company, now helps IBLCE exam takers prepare with back-to-back courses that cover the exam blueprint, tackling tough topics and emphasizing photo items. Reduced registration rates are available.

Breastfeeding Outlook's Marie Biancuzzo, RN MS IBCLC, is coming to seven cities across the nation this spring to help candidates prepare for the newly-revised International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) exam. Participants can attend her acclaimed two-day Lactation Exam Review course for help with the tough topics they'll face on the exam. Or, they can take the new one-day seminar Picture Perfect: Finding the Clues, Getting the Answers, and Passing the IBLCE Exam to focus on the photo items. Taking advantage of "early-bird" registration discounts, most participants are registering for both seminars.

"I want everyone I teach to pass this exam," Ms. Biancuzzo explains. "Lactation Exam Review has met that goal; more than 99% of participants consistently pass the exam the first time." The course covers the full scope of the exam blueprint in an intensive, interactive "crash course" designed to build knowledge, skills and confidence.

This year's IBLCE exam will be very different from past years'. Now, 60% of the exam questions--100 of 175--require recognition of clinical photos. "Decoding pertinent visual information will be more important than ever," Ms. Biancuzzo explains. "Picture Perfect gives test-takers the opportunity to master that skill."

With this solid foundation, candidates will gain the knowledge and skills they need both to deliver the highest quality, evidence-based care every day and to pass their professional IBLCE exam in 2010.

Coming to Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD (BWI-Linthicum); Boston, MA (Lowell); Dallas, TX (Lewisville); Peoria, IL; Portland, OR (Tualatin); and South Orange, NJ.
