Continuing Education:

Southern Illinois University School of Medicine (SIU) is providing continuing education credit for various disciplines including contact hours for Registered Nurses, Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Hours for Registered Dietitians, CERPS for IBCLCs and attendance credit for all other professions.  The amount of credit for each webcast varies based on the length of the presentation.  Application for CERPs has been submitted to the International Board of Lactation Examiners.  Application for contact hours for RNs has been submitted and the application for CPEs for RDs has been submitted. This webcast meets a portion of the hourly requirement for CLC/CLS recertification.

After the webcast, CHTC staff will provide your information and type of continuing education credit requested to SIU.  Within ten days, you will receive an email from SIU requesting that you create a profile on their website using either IE10 or newer, Google Chrome or Firefox.  If you have received continuing education credit from SIU for previous training sessions offered by IDHS through the Training Center, please do not create a new profile.  Access to the current continuing education opportunity will be added to your existing profile.  For those attendees that are new, after your profile is created, you will be given access to the quiz and will have three attempts to pass.  Once the quiz is passed, you will be able to print a continuing education certificate.

This webcast may be viewed, and the evaluation completed by November 28,2025 for continuing education credit for RN, RD, LDN, IBCLC (CLC or CLS).
