A CPM will be considered expired if she/he is more than 90 days past recertification deadline without declaring inactive status.
Recertification after Expired Status
Should an expired CPM decide to reactivate certification she/he will be required to:
- Attend five births;
- Fill out and submit the Recertification after Expiration Form;
- Submit evidence of 30 contact hours, including 5 hours of peer review as defined in the Reactivation packet;
- Meet reactivation requirements, including currency*, peer review, CPR, and CEUs;
- Submit Reactivation fee (includes exam).
*The births and the contact hours must have occurred within five years of reapplication.
To recertify from an expired status, the midwife will be required to retake the NARM Written Examination. The NARM Written Examination will be scheduled after the application is received. The fee for reactivation, including the Written Examination, will be the current CPM application fee.
