Revocation of Certification

The NARM Certified Professional Midwife credential may be revoked for the following reasons:

  • Falsification of Application or Recertification information to NARM or fraudulent use of the CPM credential to the public.
  • Failure to participate in the Grievance Mechanism or to abide by the conditions set as a result of the Grievance Mechanism.
  • Infractions of the Non-Disclosure policy, which threaten the security of the NARM Examinations.
  • If the Grievance Mechanism determines that the CPM acted with dishonesty, did not use appropriate informed consent with the client, or that negligent or fraudulent actions compromised the well being of a client or client’s baby, the CPM credential must be revoked.
