After significant discussion and consideration, the decision has been made to suspend the LEC credit program. We know many of you have been working very hard this year to meet program prerequisites and have been eagerly waiting to apply in December. Our current Pathway I/III & II students will complete their program of study this winter and we will not accept any new applications.
While we have wonderful community partnerships, we do not have enough clinical opportunities to support the student enrollment numbers that we would need to make the program fiscally viable. If we can identify the right instructors, PCC CLIMB will be able to continue the lactation education courses. CLIMB would not offer the clinical experience and the courses would be non-credit (Pathway I and III students only).
We appreciate the support you have provided the LEC program and as we have more information to share we will do so immediately.
Please see the IBLCE website for other Pathway 2 programs. PCC will be removed from the listing.
