About the Course
The BSCT is designed for – and registration is limited to – staff of the North Carolina WIC Program who issue breastfeeding supplies to WIC Program participants. The goal of the BSCT is to assure that these staff are knowledgeable about breastfeeding supplies and have the skills needed to issue them.
The Breastfeeding Supplies Competency Training (BSCT) is an online, faculty guided, self-paced training with hands-on activities. It will help you understand how to assemble, use and clean breastfeeding supplies and the situations when the supplies should and should not be used. In addition, you will review tips and guidance to help you provide a client and breastfeeding friendly teaching session. During the BSCT, you will have the opportunity to work with your Regional Breastfeeding Coordinator to learn about and practice with the breastfeeding supplies, including those that are not available in your agency.
There is no charge to local agencies of the NC WIC Program for their staff’s participation in this training.
This course has been developed by the Nutrition Services Branch of the Division of Public Health in the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services in collaboration with The Office of Continuing Education in The Gillings School of Global Public Health at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
