I have also been investigating LNC. I have learned that different educationg entities assign their own title (PLNC, LNCC, etc) and that certification is not really certification...you recieive a certificate of completion for the lessons/classes. The cost for the LNC educating is unreal. I bought the book recommended on the AALNC...reading it and will then make a decision. How about you ?
The AALNC has an extensive online course where, upon completion, you receive a certificate
of completion. It is not a certification and they state this. You do not use a title other than LNC (which is not a certification, just a title anyone can use in the profession).
Once you fulfill the AALNC requirements for certification (it takes years), then you can sit for the exam and if you pass, become certified as LNCC.
One must look at their own BON to see which, if any, certification is recognized. Not all are accepted.
