I am looking into being a lactation consultant. Technically, you do not need to be certified to be an LC and I have 4 children and years of experience. Is it illegal to make a certificate that says I am a "CLC" (certified lactation consultant) so I can get business?

Hello: This is Phillipsesq. Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Ask Your Own Business Law Question

No, it is not legal because you would be giving out false information. If you have not received Certification, you cannot say that you have been certified. That would would be fraudulent act on your part and you could get in trouble for making false claims about your qualifications. What you are proposing is a non-starter.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.
