Modules

The Certificate Maintenance Modules address current practice for the full scope of midwifery practice, and encourage midwives to incorporate evidence based care into their practice. One module must be completed in EACH of the three areas of practice: Antepartum and Primary Care of the Pregnant Woman, Intrapartum/Newborn and Postpartum, and Gynecology and Primary Care of the Well-Woman. Each module contains references and learning objectives from 15-20 articles, with an open book multiple choice test. If you do not successfully complete a module in each of the three areas of practice you will NOT be eligible for recertification.

Each module will have six opportunities for scantron grading, as each module is active for 34 months. Module scantrons are graded two times per year, each year that they are active. The first grading of the year is April 1st and the second grading is October 1st. Answer sheets may be mailed so that they are received any time prior to the deadlines. You are only allowed to complete the same version of a module three times. After three failed attempts you must then successfully complete a new version of the same subject module.

Effective January 1st, 2015, scantron grading will no longer be available. If you would like to submit your module for grading, please sign into your account on AMCBs website.


Modules are also available for completion online through the AMCB portal at any time for an instant result. Click here to sign into the portal.

A new module is developed each year and is active for 34 months. The module is then closed for participation on December 1st (online submission) during its third year. In a five year cycle, at least two versions of each practice area (Antepartum and Primary Care of the Pregnant Woman; Intrapartum, Postpartum and Newborn; and Gynecology and Primary Care for the Well-Woman) will be available.


We are always looking for topics for the modules and encourage you to email AMCB Headquarters
if you have ideas for any of the three practice areas. Also, if you are interested in becoming a member of the Certificate Maintenance Committee, visit our Get Involved

Grading Information


Option 1:  Online Submission and Grading

Completing modules online will allow you to receive your results instantly upon submission of your answers. If you have not already done so, please call our office to set up a username and password for this option. This option is free.


Please note that online completion is not available for a module that has been previously completed within your cycle. Online grading is only available for your required modules (1 AP Module; 1 IP Module; 1 GYN Module).


Option 2: Answer Sheet (Scantron) Grading

Please note that the grading of answer sheets only occurs April 1st and October 1st of each year. Results are sent back between 30 to 60 days of the grading deadline. Once results are processed, notification in the form of a pass/non-pass letter will be mailed to you. If you wish to have a scantron hand scored at any other time of the year there will be a $50 fee for this. You may contact AMCB to request a scantron answer sheet.


Effective January 1st, 2015, scantron grading will no longer be available. If you would like to submit your module for grading, please sign into your account on AMCBs website.
