Training for the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative

How it works

Enroll your staff and begin training immediately. Staff will be sent user information and passwords and can access the online training from work computers or from home. Each staff member will see their lessons on their learning plan. When all items on the learning plan have been completed a certificate will be generated.

Technical Support

We will coordinate with the IT department at your hospital before lessons begin to assure compatibility with your unit computers.  LER will provide technical support via telephone and email 7 days a week from 0800 to 2000 ET. Frequently asked questions are posted on the website.

Secure Course Access

Access to the course is secured by username and password. The facility will designate a coordinator for training to facilitate communication with LER. A course coordinator will determine the staff members who will participate in the program. The coordinator will provide this list of students names and email addresses to LER in Excel format, and the LER tech support team will load the information into LER’s Learning Management System.
