Thank you for visiting! The 2019 schedule is complete! You may view the list of classes on the new website for more information and to register. www.TALWD.org. Be sure to bookmark it!
This is a list to JOIN so you can be notified when classes are scheduled. Classes are held in Texas only. Registration fees vary and will be due at the time you register. Signing up here does not register you for any class and does not guarantee a spot in the class you are interested in. You will need to complete your registration and payment on the new forum. Be sure to add @eventbrite.com as an accepted email domain so your updates don't end up in spam.

If your facility is interested in hosting these classes in 2020 and can hold at least 60 comfortably with enough space to move around freely for group work and discussions on case studies and skills activities, please email the CECoordinator.
Classes are subject to cancellation if minimum registration numbers are not met. When 2 dates are offered for a 1-day class, we may combine the classes into one if registration numbers are low to allow for a better educational experience. Please make non-refundable travel arrangements if you will be traveling from out of town.
The Principles of Lactation Management (POLM) and Lactation Counseling and Problem Solving (LCPS) classes will no longer be offered after June 2019.
