Candidate Handbook


Information for candidates, including policies and procedures relevant to computer based testing (CBT) and exam application, has been integrated into one PDF document.




Studying for the AMCB Certification Exam

AMCB strongly encourages candidates to sit for the certification examination as soon as completing their midwifery education program. Research indicates that candidates perform best when taking certification examinations immediately after program completion.

***PLEASE NOTE***
While there are review courses and books available that claim to be useful when studying for the AMCB Certification Exam, AMCB does NOT endorse any of them.  Candidates who opt to use these resources for exam preparation should be aware that they should not be used as content resources.
