Steps to Accreditation

The Leader Applicant completes her application with the guidance of a Group Leader (where available) and a member of the Leader Accreditation Department (LAD). Leaders are accredited in accordance with LLLI policies governing accreditation practices. Our goal is to accredit Leaders whose knowledge and skills reflect a balance of the practical, physical, and interpersonal aspects of helping others to experience mothering through breastfeeding. LLLI is committed to serving everyone. LLLI seeks the equitable accreditation of a diverse body of Leaders.
