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.
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. If you do not successfully complete a module in each of the three areas of practice you will NOT be eligible for recertification.
Modules are 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 15th 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.
If you are in the last year of your certification cycle, all modules must be completed before December 15th.
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 page.
