New Certification Process Launches Next Week
by Debra Tolson, RN, BSN, ICCE, IBCLC, CPST
Most exciting of all, we gave you a sneak peek into our streamlined certification process. Now, it’s time to announce that that the new certification process will launch next week!
Once the new programs are unveiled, you can expect to see:
- Certification bundled with member benefits
- More equitable pricing on a global scale
- A process that is straightforward and easy to enroll in
- A more nurturing organization that will mentor students
- Reduced pricing for certifications purchased after initial certification
ICEA is now your one-stop shop where you can get all of your maternal-child health certifications at an affordable price!
If you’re already certified with ICEA, then great changes are in store for you too. The new recertification process includes updated and simplified procedures making the process less of a headache. Plus, recertification fees will be more cost-effective, and reduced pricing will be offered on second and third recertifications.
Please Note: During the transition period, prices reflected on the website for recertification are not necessarily equivalent to the fees that will be requested from you. Expect to see an email 90 days prior to your certification expiration with the correct fees listed. As always, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The board and I are incredibly excited for this next step, and we are certain these programs will serve your needs. Stay tuned for the official launch next week.
In addition to the streamlined certification programs, you can expect many more important and exciting changes to ICEA. These will all be steadily rolled and include:
- Revised handbook and bylaws
- Updated scholarship, mentorship, and volunteer programs
If you have questions about any of these changes, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, the board, or staff. We are honored you chose ICEA as your certification body, and we look forward to your participation in our streamlined certification process.
