Option 1

Complete the program as prescribed for Texas students, including attending all the workshops and apprenticing with an approved CPM or CNM. By using this option, you will be able to sit the NARM exam as a Texas Agency candidate (you can test at a site other than Texas if more convenient). You will then be able to license in Texas and use your Texas License to apply for NARM certification (CPM). Texas midwifery educational requirements have been evaluated for educational equivalency by NARM.

Option 2

This option is for use as an independent study guide only and will not qualify you for the Texas license or NARM Certification.

If you choose not to license in Texas and apply for NARM Certified Professional Midwife status as a Texas Agency candidate, you may omit: attending the workshops and the apprenticeship period. After submitting the assignments from the first module of study and passing the exam you will receive the next module of study. Course installment payments must be made prior to receiving each successive module of study. When you have completed all seven modules of study and passed the related exams, you will be given a letter verifying your completion of academics only. Module 8,  Advanced Skills, requires attendance at the two day workshop.  ( If you should choose to change over to the program as prescribed by Texas law, you will be required to attend any missed workshops and complete an apprenticeship period with an approved Preceptor.)

Out-of-state applicants are welcome!
However, if you live out-of-state we encourage you to contact the
ATMMTP Course Coordinator prior to enrolling to discuss your options.
