Recertification After Expiration

A CPM will be considered expired:

  • if they are more than 90 days past recertification deadline without declaring Inactive Status, or
  • at the end of six years of Inactive Status.

Recertification after Expired Status

Should an expired CPM decide to reactivate certification, they will be required to submit evidence of the following on Recertification after Expiration Form 610:
  • attendance at five births within five years of reapplication
  • thirty contact hours in the last three years, including five hours of peer review as defined in the Reactivation packet
  • current CPR and NRP (read FAQ for details)
  • attendance at a cultural awareness workshop

Once the Recertification after Expiration Form 610 is completed, please submit it along with the Reactivation fee as instructed on the form.

To reactivate from an expired status, the midwife will be required to retake the NARM Examination or submit a copy of their current state midwifery license or AMCB Certification. The NARM Examination will be scheduled after the Recertification after Expiration Form 610 is approved.
