Are you in a state that requires a MEAC education starting January 1, 2020?

Starting January 1, 2020, states that use the US MERA language will require CPMs to have either attended a MEAC school or obtain a Midwifery Bridge Certificate if they earned their CPM via PEP route prior to December 31, 2019. PEP students who are in training in these states (Alabama, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, and South Dakota) may want to obtain their CPM this year.

To earn their CPM, PEP students will need to have their Phase 3 application submitted and complete by September 1, 2019 to ensure the deadline will be met. If the CPM is not earned by December 31, 2019, students will have to enroll in a MEAC school to meet their state’s requirements for practice.

As the deadline to obtain a CPM via PEP route approaches, we have created a timeline to assist PEP students seeking to earn their CPM by December 31, 2019.

TIMELINE for earning CPM via PEP route by December 31, 2019

NOTE:  Phase 4 applications received by the Applications Department after December 1, 2019 will be processed in as timely a way as possible. However, if corrections need to be made to Phase 3 or Phase 4 of your application, processing will be delayed and the December 31st Certification date cannot be guaranteed.

The NARM Applications Department is committed to assisting candidates applying for their CPMs during this critical time frame. If you have further questions, please contact us via or 888-842-4784 ext. 1.
